Would you rather… Have 3 eyes or webbed feet?

I’m a sucker for "would you rather" type questions. These are questions that pose two options to choose - each of which would be difficult to accommodate. A friend of mine, Tera, actually has a book called ‘bar-guments’ that is full of random questions to stump your slightly inebriated friends. So, since I have loads of free time, I randomly ran across a few good ones that I’d like to answer for my blog following!

Would you rather.... Have 3 eyes or webbed feet?
I’m assuming with this one that you can place your newly acquired eye wherever you want. As a result, I would choose the eye and would have it in the back of my head. That way, not only could I see what was going on back there, but I could grow my hair out long and hide it if I ever wanted it to go away.

Would you rather.... Be able to hear any conversation or take back anything you say?
This was a GOOD one and really got me thinking. At first I wanted to be able to hear any conversation. However, the more I thought about it, the more I thought that I appreciate a certain level of naiveté. Therefore, I would choose to take back anything that I said. Think about it…. Do you have any major decision coming up? Try out making the first decision and if you don’t like the way it plays out you’ll always have the second option to fall back on! Of course, I think that there was a Simpsons episode where Homer was able to time travel (because of a messed up toaster) and screwed everything up because of the changes he made, but I guess that is a risk I am willing to take.

And, since LOST is starting next week, Would you rather.... Be stranded on an island alone or with someone you hate?
This one didn’t take much thought at all. I’m a pretty forgiving guy, so if I truly hated someone, there is no way that I could be with them for any period of time. I’d take alone hands down. I’m pretty content with being lost in my own lack of thoughts (see also “why I run” post).

Let me know what you think!

I agreed with your second two. The first one however, I chose webbed feet because they are easy to hide, plus it would make me an AWESOME swimmer! The eye is just one more thing to worry about... I always get stuff in the two I already have. Meh. Annoying.

1) Eye
2) Alone
3) Take back anything i say

Well, it looks like we have 3 things in common. We can stare at each other while being alone and perhaps not talking!!!

Happy Thursday!!

1. Webbed feet.... it would help me swim, i'm not very good!

2. Take back anything i say.... i speak before i think WAY too often!

3. Person I hate.... what if there is a mysterious black fog or polar bears or "others" that kill people on the island.... you could give them the person you hate and make it out alive!
