I would definitely become an alchemist:)
Joseph Wright "The Alchemist in Search of the Philosopher's Stone"
but I do think, that it is indeed possible to turn some regular metal into gold (I don't like gold, though, and I think it looks bad and it feels bad), nevertheless I would spent most of my life trying to find out how to change metals into something more expensive
I find it interesting
it is like being a wizard, and yes, I do believe in what is now called "magic", I am sure, it is some sort of physics, that we just forgot
maybe I should get some Basic Chemistry Lab Equipment Kit :) just to start:)
