Tuesday is Chooseday

Would you rather:

  1. live in a place with the constant threat of volcano eruptions OR the constant threat of tidal waves?
    Drowning seems more lingering than burning, somehow, and maybe I could get knocked out by flying hardened lava before I burned. Of course, I could also just suffocate from the gases and ash or be buried alive like at Pompeii. But it still seems like there's something totally lame about tidal waves.
  2. go through an operation that would make you absolutely gorgeous, able to win any beauty contest OR one that would make you able to run faster than anybody on the planet?
    I think this is the hardest of the week. Attract suitors or run away from them? Hmmm. Exactly how fast can I run? Will it make a significant difference in my daily transportation? Will I have super endurance too, or will I only be able to win the 5-yard dash? Will I be beautiful or fast when I'm old? I think I'll go with fast, because otherwise people might compliment me all the time and that would annoy me. This way I would be superior in a measurable, objective way.
  3. have warts on your face OR on your genitals?
    It's probably best to be upfront about things like warts. Right? I dunno. How many warts?
  4. scream in pain everytime you comb your hair OR cry like a baby when you brush your teeth?
    How loud is the screaming? Does "combing" include "brushing"? I cry too much anyway, so I guess I'll just do that, because I'm more likely to comb my hair than brush my teeth outside the privacy of my own home.

1) tidal waves, because getting drowned by water seems better than burning alive in molten rock...
2) normally i would pick the fastest runner in the world, b/c i never could run really fast, but having an operation to make me gorgeous could solve the problem in #3 (on second thought, so could running really fast, if i was in the Olympics and got sponsored so much that i was rich...)
3) doesn't matter because i will get them removed via #2 ;)
4) scream when i comb my hair, because i never comb my hair (unless it reduces to screaming whenever i touch my hair, and in that case crying is better than screaming in pain, IMO -- pain can make one cry anyway...no need to add the pain part)

1. I'd go with the volcanos because that you can hear happening, and yeah, I'm going with that
2. be gorgeous, why be fast? we have cars for that
3. totally going with Matt on this, I'd get the surgery AFTER getting warts and then not have to deal with the problem
4. what the hell????? I already cry when brushing my hair sometimes, so I'll go with the teeth, I have bad teeth anyway, so I normally cry when at the dentist....

It was haaaaaaaaarrrrd this week, dang
