    The "Would You Rather" Thread

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Miller0700, Jun 16, 2016.

    I'll start off.

    WYR feel completely refreshed every time you woke up no matter the time of day or be able to snap your finger and fall asleep instantly?

    The first. The latter would result in complications and might be misinterpreted as narcolepsy.

    Would you rather lose both of your big toes or both of your thumbs?

    would you rather be able to fly, or breathe under water?

    would you rather be able to consume all the world's literature in whatever language but never get published, or publish one novel of your own but never ever read anything ever again?

    The first.

    The second.

    Would you rather listen to "Ballroom Blitz" for five hours straight? Or watch the Nyan cat video for three hours straight?

    The first.

    Would you rather spend your entire life working on a novel/story/series, but never becoming published despite having created a masterpiece, or would you rather spend your entire life working on the same masterpiece but die the day before it is published?

    The first, post it online and just use Patreon and Kickstarter as alternate means of funding.

    Would you rather have have a robot servant to help with whatever task you want, but it has a timer in it for when it will start trying to kill you, or have a bear servant that might try to kill you.

    The second because I think a bear trying to kill me would be easier to deal with than a robot.
    Would your rather own a massive mansion with massive grounds but you can never leave the grounds or have to travel all over the world but never stay in a place more than a week?

    A massive country-size mansion with world-size grounds.

    Would you rather sit on a fence for a month or spend a lifetime being ambivalent?

    :confused: The first I guess.
    Would you rather die with your loved ones or live alone forever but contribute great things in doing so?

    the first one. the second one seems like a sad life despite the great contributions.

    Would you rather live in Middle-earth or Westeros?

    Middle Earth, so long as you're west of The Shire, you're safe. In Westeros the King changed faster than you can hear about it.

    Would you rather live in a Fallout style vault, or Bioshock's rapture before the fall.

    Rapture! Powers are freaking cool. The vaults make me feel claustrophobic.

    Would you rather be a cat in the home of a crazy cat lover, or a dog in the home of an equally crazy dog lover?

    My gut says cat, assuming I stay as much of an introvert as I am. But if my personality changed to be more like a dog I'd probably be happier.

    Would you rather be a criminal, or a victim of a criminal?

    I'd rather be the criminal, and turn into a modern day Robin Hood.

    Would you rather eat pancakes made with vodka, or waffles made with rum? (both are possible, I've done both due to a lacking of milk)

    Pancakes.
    Would you rather die a certain death or be tortured brutally and there's a sliver of a chance you'll survive?

    WYR have everyone in the world follow your religious beliefs (or lack there of) of your political beliefs?

    Religious.
    Getting rid of religion would cut out a lot of Political issues... My political view is let the giant-super-smart-computer make the laws, but that's not an option yet :(

    Would you rather switch gender or ethnicity?

    A though one, I'd go with ethnicity.

    Would you rather be chased by Jack the Ripper or Norman Bates?

    Norman Bates. Jack the Ripper was (by guess and legend) quite strong and vicious. More than Bates.
    Would you rather die of overeating or starvation?

    Norman Bates. He was a pussy who snuck up on defenseless women

    Be shifted to the fictional universe of your choice but without knowing what role you would play?
    or
    Be shifted to a fictional universe you don't like but you could choose the character.

    Well, it depends on the universe. But overall, choose the character. There's always someone who gets shit and someone who gets less.

    Starvation, I'm already overweight.

    WYR never be able to orgasm or never be able to taste your favorite foods?

    My God, do you have any idea how productive I'd be if I couldn't masturbate? I'd have written a book on writing books by now.

    WYR never be able to take a full breath again, (lets say only a half breath) OR permanently have that water-in-your-ear feeling?
