    Default Which is better?

    OK, so this is a totally empirical way of settling which of two unrelated objects is superior. Poster 1 poses a weighty conundrum, such as "Which is better? Barbarians or Grapefruit?" And the next poster solves the conundrum with their undeniable wisdom, such as "Grapefruit because Barbarian Juice just makes me thirstier" or "Barbarians because a flying collumn of mounted grapefruit is, at best, a momentary distraction." and then poses their own problem.

    So, which is better? Pikes (the weapon) or Hammerheads (the shark)?

    Pikes, you can pike a hammerhead but not hammerhead a pike.

    Champagne because it can help you forget your real pain ... or even the sham pain.

    I-pod because it can hold thousands of songs while a pea pod can only hold a couple tiny green spheres.

    South Park (the Tv show) or Central Park (the New York Landmark)?

    Coconuts because I can't drink from, crack open on the sidewalk, or eat the flesh of lugnuts.

    Which is better: Procrastination or hmmm... I'll get back to you tommorow with the next one. Actually next week, or does next month sound fine? How about next millenium?

















    Actually the other option is not procrastinating

    Store-brand diet cola will clean the rust off your tools and soak the the caked layer of gunk off the bottom of your garbage bin, while the concrete bust just sits there like a slob. No contest.

    Toothpaste or socks?

    The cleric was walking through a forest when he heard a loud explosion. Upon investigation, he quickly uncovered the ruins of a large tower he couldn't remember seeing there before. He decided to search the rubble for anything worth looting. At that point, I told the wizard to start rolling to see if he would stabilise.

    Land the plane. The near certain death of the body is preferable to the certain death of the mind.

    Fish and chips, because afterwards not only does everybody feel better, but the proletariat have also been fed and no longer need to achieve social upheaval, so everyone goes home happy.

    The actual Zeppelin landing on my lawn. Even if it's on fire, it's less clean-up afterwards than a popular concert these days, and if it isn't on fire, I can claim salvage rights.


    Which is better: spending the rest of my life on my private zeppelin, or winning a Nobel prize for turning lead into gold?

    The latter. Lead-to-gold may not have many practical applications, but a zeppelin definitely isn't worth trading Taffimai's life for.

    Both of those numbers sound like they'd probably be an improvement. I mean, if I had my idle curiosity about my acquaintances satisfied half the time, I'd probably get a lot of gross, invasive information that I normally wouldn't have dwelt on. But imagine a world where I liked at least half of my co-workers! I'd be a different, much happier person, which... I really don't want, actually. Forbidden knowledge, please!
