There's a college in Warsaw whose ad for students goes something like - "Zdolny, ambitny, atrakcyjny?". I've often wondered if "atrakcyjny" has some added meaning I'm unaware of, or is this college just fussy about the looks of its students? :)
To quote one of the moderators, Alik: Imo, this only sounds ok in conditional clauses. "I can understand his desire. If I were as tall as him, I would want to be a basketball player, too." - and then a native speaker confirmed.
