Quote from: Baruch on February 20, 2018, 06:35:11 PMFirst option (you are implying that you could die in less than 1000 years, if you wanted to. Definitely not the second option. Too much of a good thing ... or a bad thing, depending. The point of life isn't quantity, it is quality.Would you rather be a male bee who mates with the queen and dies immediately afterward -or-be a female drone who gets shit done in the hive?
Quote from: Munch on February 20, 2018, 07:21:11 PMoption B (chance of being a queen and then all the mens are mine)Would you rather Become extremely rich but by illegal means, knowing you could be caught and jailed any time for it -or-Work hard all your life for your wealth, but have no energy or zest for life to spend it on, just a workus.
Quote from: GSOgymrat on February 20, 2018, 08:17:21 PMWould you rather be a brilliant author who never had any privacy or a brilliant author who was never famous?
Quote from: Hydra009 on February 20, 2018, 09:59:45 PMSecond. I could live with a lack of fame (it's the default) but a lack of privacy would be unbearable.Would you rather.....never play computer games again -OR- never watch any video on a computer again?
Quote from: Blackleaf on February 21, 2018, 01:12:34 AMWould you rather:Be able to fly, but never land. (You float.)Have super strength, but touching others is always fatal.
Quote from: Munch on February 21, 2018, 04:54:50 AMEasy, A, it's more adaptable then B were those I love would get hurt.Would you rather-A: have a dream home just the way you like it, but be living on a tiny island with limited community and only a couple shops.B: live in a lackluster home but live somewhere with all conveniences and mod cons nearby like in a city or town.
Quote from: GrinningYMIR on February 21, 2018, 06:42:42 AMIâ€™d rather stay in one place with a nice home than have a mobile home, Iâ€™m not one for traveling anyway. Would you rather go back in time and live as a prosperous Roman, with all the amenities of the era but without the ability to change anything and minus modern technology, or live as a low/middle class person in the modern era with all the technology like medicine and internet but with no way to advance your social and economic standing but plenty of ways to decline? Say as a Roman you live during Pax Romana
Quote from: Munch on February 21, 2018, 07:38:16 AMdon't really have much of a choice for me but to live today, I'd be dead in 3 days living in roman times, so gotta go with the second option, need insulin.Would you rather have summer heat all year round but having no AC or fans to speak of (you'd have plenty of water), or live in a perpetual cold place with limited means to keep warm (like only having a fireplace and wood to burn)
Quote from: Mr.Obvious on February 21, 2018, 01:00:41 PMSummer please, if i can take two quick showers a day, i can manage. Plus all The girls would be wearing summer outfits. I have bad joints and a back that act up in winter. Plus my eternal cold would become eternal cold from hell, all year round. I don't like winter, like at all.Would you rather be pushed around in a adult sized stroller everywhere you go, for one year OR have to drink anything you drink from a baby-bottle for five years?
Quote from: Blackleaf on February 21, 2018, 09:51:37 PMI'd choose the baby bottle. The latter option can be used more in privacy, while being pushed around in a stroller is a very public thing. If I had to drink something when I was away from home (which I could avoid doing), I could just tell people that I lost a bet.Would you rather: A. Become immune to sickness and injury for the rest of your life, but lose half of your remaining lifespan. B. Double your remaining lifespan, but become twice as susceptible to sickness and injury.
