The point is to rank in terms of impact on yourself and maybe your immediate social circle, though you can have a separate ranking for global impact if you want.

  • Every day you get a pill that gives you a state of absolute euphoria (think: the best parts of certain drugs) for 3 hours, after which you return to your base state. There are no negative side effects and no withdrawal symptoms (you retain memory of the feeling and it can affect you psychologically, but you won't get addicted to it or anything). You can use or save the pills, but you can't sell or give them away.
  • You can talk with anyone who has ever lived, whenever you want. You can't use the implications of this ability to directly get rich/famous or something (e.g. recording and selling interviews with George Washington), nor can you turn this into a sexual or romantic relationship unless if you had the means to do this with that person already.
  • You no longer have any hatred or ill will towards yourself or any other living being, though you can still feel playful annoyance. This doesn't preclude practical measures you can take, and in the case of an emergency like a fight your instincts will still work.
  • You become the smoothest and most physically attractive member of your gender on the planet.
  • You become the smartest person on the planet (with other parts of you not being directly affected).
  • You receive an endless supply of any food you want (can't sell or give it away).
  • You get 10 million USD.
  • Every night is 6 hours longer, which somehow doesn't speed up your aging relative to the number of days or have other such implications.
  • As a one-time thing (right now), you get to remove all past traumatic experiences from your psyche - you can still remember them, but they stop being traumatic. This doesn't apply to the parts that are used in formative development, e.g. learning not to touch hot things or something.
  • You have sex with an extremely attractive member of your preferred gender once every other week (somehow it organically happens per act of god), on top of what sex you would've had otherwise. If you have a significant other I guess you can determine within reason what that means.
  • You receive a 100 million dollar mansion in a location of your choice. All the utilities, cleaning, etc. is paid for and constantly taken care of. You cannot sell the mansion or use it to directly make money.
  • You never get sick again.

But to give a serious answer, I'll rank all of them in order of how desirable they are: 

- You become the smartest person on the planet (with other parts of you not being directly affected).

- You never get sick again.

- Every night is 6 hours longer, which somehow doesn't speed up your aging relative to the number of days or have other such implications.

- You receive an endless supply of any food you want (can't sell or give it away).

- You become the smoothest and most physically attractive member of your gender on the planet.

- You get 10 million USD.

- You receive a 100 million dollar mansion in a location of your choice. All the utilities, cleaning, etc. is paid for and constantly taken care of. You cannot sell the mansion or use it to directly make money.

You can talk with anyone who has ever lived, whenever you want. You can't use the implications of this ability to directly get rich/famous or something (e.g. recording and selling interviews with George Washington), nor can you turn this into a sexual or romantic relationship unless if you had the means to do this with that person already.

- You have sex with an extremely attractive member of your preferred gender once every other week (somehow it organically happens per act of god), on top of what sex you would've had otherwise. If you have a significant other I guess you can determine within reason what that means.

Every day you get a pill that gives you a state of absolute euphoria (think: the best parts of certain drugs) for 3 hours, after which you return to your base state.

I'm not sure how to break down exact rankings, so I'll just put them in tiers instead (not ordered within tiers), based on personal utility (for the sake of the ranking - a ranking based on global utility would probably look different):

Tier 1 (top)

  • - You can talk with anyone who has ever lived, whenever you want. You can't use the implications of this ability to directly get rich/famous or something (e.g. recording and selling interviews with George Washington), nor can you turn this into a sexual or romantic relationship unless if you had the means to do this with that person already.

This would be such an OP ability - you'd get to talk to any historical figure ever, get mentored by anyone ever, and have a friend group far beyond even the most connected person on Earth.

  • - Every day you get a pill that gives you a state of absolute euphoria (think: the best parts of certain drugs) for 3 hours, after which you return to your base state. There are no negative side effects and no withdrawal symptoms (you retain memory of the feeling and it can affect you psychologically, but you won't get addicted to it or anything). You can use or save the pills, but you can't sell or give them away.

This essentially means that once every week you get about a day that would otherwise be classified as the best day of your life.

  • - You no longer have any hatred or ill will towards yourself or any other living being, though you can still feel playful annoyance. This doesn't preclude practical measures you can take, and in the case of an emergency like a fight your instincts will still work.

This would eliminate the overwhelming majority of the suffering in your life and make you extremely happy. 

Tier 2

  • - You become the smartest person on the planet (with other parts of you not being directly affected).

This is one that would rank way higher in the global utility column, but yeah you could do so many things with this intellect. It could even just be something as mundane as being multiple times more productive at any knowledge-based job, thus accelerating your career massively, reading so much faster, etc. Granted, it's not on the same level as if you had superhuman intelligence on the level of a comic book character or something.

  • - You never get sick again.

This one is actually difficult to place; it could get placed even higher if you exploit the implications of being immune to sickness, and/or if you account for how it minimizes odds of disaster scenarios. On the other hand, just from a more mundane day-to-day level it doesn't seem to be as potent. I kind of arbitrarily split the difference.

  • - You become the smoothest and most physically attractive member of your gender on the planet.

So this wasn't intended initially but the "smoothest" on the planet part would have pretty massive implications; it would suggest that you have like the best social skills on Earth.

Tier 3

  • - You get 10 million USD.

This is the most generic item and like a benchmark; it's still incredibly potent assuming you don't blow it. You wouldn't have to work anymore if you didn't want to.

Tier 4

  • - Every night is 6 hours longer, which somehow doesn't speed up your aging relative to the number of days or have other such implications.

This would essentially lengthen your life and give you many more opportunities to do things, though it doesn't have the "life is now on easy mode" allure of 10 million USD.

  • - You have sex with an extremely attractive member of your preferred gender once every other week (somehow it organically happens per act of god), on top of what sex you would've had otherwise. If you have a significant other I guess you can determine within reason what that means.

Handwaving fidelity (like imagine it's polyamorous or something?), this is pretty awesome of course, but I mean something like 10 million USD is way more versatile (and could theoretically get you pretty close to it by itself anyway).

  • - As a one-time thing (right now), you get to remove all past traumatic experiences from your psyche - you can still remember them, but they stop being traumatic. This doesn't apply to the parts that are used in formative development, e.g. learning not to touch hot things or something.

This would vary a lot by the person - it would still be very potent for me, though I would take something like 10 million USD over it for sure. If it were like a long-term immunity to trauma, then it would be way higher.

Tier 5

  • - You receive an endless supply of any food you want (can't sell or give it away).

This is awesome; it's just that there are so many OP things above it, and I already can access good food.

Tier 6

  • - You receive a 100 million dollar mansion in a location of your choice. All the utilities, cleaning, etc. is paid for and constantly taken care of. You cannot sell the mansion or use it to directly make money.

This would be pretty awesome too, but just the mansion by itself would probably get less awesome once the novelty wears off - it can't match the perks above.
