Title: Which is worse?
Post by: Haids1987 on October 05, 2010, 09:01:45 PM
Hey.  How 'bout that ride down here?  I guess that's why they call it "Sin City."  :P

Okay, for real...let's play a new game!!!  The rules are easy--post two of something (scenarios, movies, names, muffins, etc), and the person below you will answer which of the two is worse.  Also answering why you picked the answer is always interesting. ;)  My turn!

Which is worse...
Having grass for hair or yarn for fingernails?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: kindofdoon on October 05, 2010, 09:07:51 PM
Cool idea!

Yarn is worse because having grass hair would actually be pretty cool.

WIW (which is worse): The 2005 C&D or the 2010 C&D?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: waltzdancing on October 05, 2010, 10:03:36 PM
Oh, I'd have to say 2010, we just made it look easy :P

WIW bottle water or tap water?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: kindofdoon on October 05, 2010, 10:09:05 PM
Death to bottled water!

*regains composure*

WIW: VHS or 8-track?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: Travis-AGA on October 05, 2010, 11:14:19 PM
VHS is worse because VHS became popular by the sole purpose that the tape has a longer length. VHS's competitor, BETA, has superior quality by a long-shot (the TV stations I worked at used BETA right up until the Digital TV switch in 2008-2009). BETA is just that good... VHS quality is POOEY and it shows. It really really shows.

At least 8-Track was actual portable quality back then considering what they had.

WIW: Getting bit by a shark or stung by 30 Jelly fish. No death in either case... but it would hurt. a lot.
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: Fierce Deity on October 05, 2010, 11:32:30 PM
I think getting bit by a shark would be worse, because even if you don't die, there's a high chance you'll become an amputee. Being stung by 30 Jellyfish, while painful, would be tolerable to the former. I would also suggest that if you get stung by 30 jellyfish, that you not have any qualms with soaking in a tub of urine to kill the pain.

WIW: Compact Disc or Vinyl? 
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: kindofdoon on October 05, 2010, 11:37:01 PM
I'm going to be very objective and say Vinyl because even though it's nostalgic, its quality degrades over time it's a generally lossy storage medium. Plus it's large.

WIW: Tipping over backwards in a chair, or using a slow computer?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: Fierce Deity on October 05, 2010, 11:50:51 PM
I'd say using a slow computer. While one can quickly recover from tipping over backwards in a chair (assuming a coma is not induced from the incident), it takes weeks and weeks of hard labor and many paychecks to earn the amount of money required to upgrade a slow computer to a respectable level of awesomeness.

WIW: PS3 or X360?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: kindofdoon on October 05, 2010, 11:59:44 PM
I like your response.

Probably the 360 because I don't care for multiplayer gaming, and the PS3 has a broader range of more interesting games. Though to be fair, I don't own either.

WIW: Too sweet or too hot? (with regard to food/drink)
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: Delling on October 06, 2010, 04:45:06 AM
ooh... new game... I like...

Too hot: I have no spice/hot tolerance.

WIW: compiling code or hands-on labwork?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: crayauchtin on October 06, 2010, 07:38:13 AM
Compiling code, because I can't do it.

WIW athlete's foot or a non-itchy facial rash?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: Travis-AGA on October 06, 2010, 01:44:49 PM
non-itchy facial rash. I have to be in public a lot and work with a lot of random people... so, that would be a bad thing. Although, both are really nasty.

WIW: Mono tin-canny sound or Standard Definition TV?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: kindofdoon on October 06, 2010, 02:16:08 PM
Dang, that's really hard...I can't pick! (Does this mean I lose?)

WIW: KQVII or KQVIII? (holy acronyms!)
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: Fierce Deity on October 06, 2010, 02:39:50 PM
I'd have to say KQVIII. Although it had potential and I liked it more than KQVII, Mask of Eternity was the black sheep of the series. KQVII was considered a "true sequel" while Mask of Eternity was banished to a dimension of "unworthiness". I'd recommend KQVIII to just about anybody, but for the sake of this game, I'll consider it the worse.

WIW: Facebook or MySpace?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: tessspoon on October 06, 2010, 03:10:59 PM
Myspace. Facebook has Frontierville. :P

WIW: No internet or no cellphone?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: Rosella on October 06, 2010, 03:20:29 PM
No cellphone. My phone has everything I'd ever need. XP

WIW: Going deaf or going blind?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: Fierce Deity on October 06, 2010, 03:31:55 PM
This is tough, cause on one hand I think music is one of the finest works of art that humanity has been able to muster up, but on the other hand, we're all very reliant on our sight. I'll have to say that losing your sight would have to be worse. Besides, Beethoven was deaf, and he was still able to enjoy music, though maybe not to its full extent.

WIW: iPod or Zune?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: kindofdoon on October 06, 2010, 04:13:58 PM
Zune, because Apple is best! (Admittedly, I'm a fanboy.)

WIW: :stabs: or :whip:? (as a method of torture)
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: Fierce Deity on October 06, 2010, 05:00:58 PM
Stabbing is definitely worse. Especially if it were a method of torture. Stabbing will draw blood, and a loss of blood could make the victim light-headed and eventually kill him. Whipping is not nearly as lethal, and it hurts like hell. Very effective for getting the answers you desire.  :evil:

WIW:  :snake: or  :watchout:?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: LadyTerra on October 06, 2010, 05:24:35 PM
 :snake: because it looks more vicious.  All  :watchout: wants is a little music.

WIW: Burning to death or freezing to death?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: Fierce Deity on October 06, 2010, 05:31:27 PM
I can only imagine burning to death. If you're freezing, eventually you'll body will become numb.

WIW: A WIW about torture or a WIW about dying? Seriously, why so grim folks?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: waltzdancing on October 06, 2010, 08:15:10 PM
I'd have to say torture, death is inevitable.

WIW being blind or being deaf?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: Rosella on October 06, 2010, 08:21:31 PM
(We just did that question. XD)
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: waltzdancing on October 06, 2010, 08:23:44 PM
Oops. Guess I need to pay more attention. Sorry guys.

WIW flat tire or over heated engine?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: tessspoon on October 06, 2010, 08:26:29 PM
Over heated engine, at least I've had experience dealing with a flat tire (well, actually it was more like an exploded tire... :P)

WIW: bad movie or bad book?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: waltzdancing on October 06, 2010, 08:29:02 PM
Bad Movie.

It's so expensive to go see a movie in theaters these days it is ridicules. 10 bucks! At that price I expect to get my money's worth. I can only go a see a movie once now unlike the Lord of the Ring Days when you could get in for 4.50.

WIW younger brother or younger sister?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: kindofdoon on October 06, 2010, 09:15:55 PM
Freezing because your body would stay intact and past a certain point, the numbness would eliminate any pain.

My, we are quite gruesome, aren't we?

WIW: Steve(Jobs or Ballmer)? (think distributive property)
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: snabbott on October 07, 2010, 07:55:22 AM
Ummm... you answered the wrong question. :P

I don't know that I could describe either a younger brother or sister as "bad," let alone worse. ::)

Steve Jobs, definitely. He annoys me with how controlling he is of what can be done with Apple hardware. >:(
(By the way, I've always thought you should be able to use parenthesis for grouping in grammar - particularly when it's not clear which noun an adjective applies to.)

WIW: No books or no music?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: Rosella on October 07, 2010, 08:27:13 AM
No music. I haven't really read much since middle school, and there are so many forms of media that tell a story (like video games :P) that I wouldn't feel like I'm missing anything. No music, on the other hand...I'd die. Singing is my passion; music is my outlet. I'd go insane without that kind of emotional release.

WIW: Writing a 20 page paper or giving a 10 minute presentation?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: koko_99_2001 on October 07, 2010, 08:33:12 AM
20 page paper...I did enough presentations in graduate school that they don't bother me anymore XD


WIW: swimming in 20 degree weather or running when it's over 100 degrees?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: crayauchtin on October 07, 2010, 11:44:46 AM
Swimming in 20 degree weather -- I HATE the cold.
Besides, I can run naked and be cooler, it's harder to swim with layers to stay warm. :P

WIW: The smell of burnt hair or the smell of garbage?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: kindofdoon on October 07, 2010, 11:58:59 AM
I sort of enjoy the former, actually...

WIW: Venom or Carnage? (Spider-Man villains)
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: crayauchtin on October 07, 2010, 01:28:02 PM
It's not my turn so this isn't an official answer but.....

CARNAGE!!!!
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: Haids1987 on October 07, 2010, 02:06:22 PM
Woooo!  I'm gone for 24 hours and you guys have rocked this thread!  I love it! XD

WIW: Venom or Carnage? (Spider-Man villains)
Ummmm...I've never actually seen Spider-Man.  ;]  But I'll say Carnage.  It just sounds more fear-inducing.

WIW: WWII or Vietnam?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: kindofdoon on October 07, 2010, 02:09:37 PM
WWII: more people died.

WIW: Bad weather or boredom?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: crayauchtin on October 07, 2010, 02:18:29 PM
Haids -- you made the right choice but just to educate you.... this is Venom:
(http://bestgamewallpapers.com/files/ultimate-spider-man/venom.jpg)
He's a disgruntled former newspaper employee who came in contact with Spider-Man's evil alien costume, and decided to use it to try to kill Spider-Man.

This is Carnage:
(http://images.fanpop.com/images/image_uploads/Carnage-spider-man-242375_297_434.jpg)
He's a disgruntled serial killer who came in contact with a piece of Spider-Man's evil alien costume and decided to use it to try to kill everyone.

So, yes, I think you made the right choice. :P
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: Haids1987 on October 07, 2010, 02:22:32 PM
I feel much smarter now.  :scholar:  Thanks, Cray!

I remember both of those guys from the SNES Spiderman video game.  Venom actually used to give me nightmares when I was little! :(

WIW: Bad weather or boredom?
Psh, I deal with bad weather all the time.  Definitely boredom.

WIW: Bending a fingernail backwards or stubbing a toe?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: koko_99_2001 on October 07, 2010, 02:35:00 PM
Bending back a fingernail...unless of course you end up breaking your toe :P


WIW: computer crashing or Starbucks being out of your favorite drink?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: Travis-AGA on October 07, 2010, 03:24:38 PM
computer crashing... that's just awful.

I can't see how a drink could even compare.

Maybe it's because I'm not a starbucks addict.

WIW: Sierra On-line's Chainsaw Monday or the decline of newspapers.
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: kindofdoon on October 07, 2010, 07:10:20 PM
Chainsaw Monday. Newspapers are unnecessary paper waste, and I have no nostalgia for them. Plus, they're so large and awkward to hold that I find them difficult to read.

WIW: Boggle or Scrabble?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: tessspoon on October 07, 2010, 07:32:25 PM
Boggle, never really played it. Scrabble was one of the few board games my mother was actually willing to play with us when we were younger.

WIW: too much organization or too little organization?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: waltzdancing on October 07, 2010, 08:18:02 PM
To little organization.

I got myself lost with everything going on this week, because I forgot to update my weekly calendar.

WIW Losing in a close game or losing a big game?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: writerlove on October 07, 2010, 08:50:42 PM
The close ones. My uni lost to the other in-state public school in OT in September. Worst loss I've ever felt :(

WIW: Broken leg or broken arm?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: kindofdoon on October 07, 2010, 08:53:59 PM
An arm. I could live just fine without my legs. Just plop me in front of a computer and I'd be set. My arms, on the other, are vital to all my activities.

WIW: shrapnel or poison gas?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: LadyTerra on October 07, 2010, 08:59:45 PM
Shrapnel.  Poison gas makes you feel like you're burning on the inside as well as out.

WIW: Bathing in strong acid or boiling alive?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: Jafar on October 07, 2010, 09:40:02 PM
Acid. At least with the hot water, you can have a bubble bath in your last moments. :P

What's worse, puns, or knock-knock jokes?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: kindofdoon on October 07, 2010, 09:55:32 PM
I actually like puns, so knock-knock jokes.

WIW: hunger or thirst?

Thirst--that'll kill you in 3 days, hunger you can manage a little longer.

WIW: spiders or cockroaches? (ew ew ew!)

WIW: spiders or cockroaches? (ew ew ew!)

Spiders can be poisonous, but they also kill other bugs. Cockroaches can allegedly survive the apocalypse. Anything that can survive an unholy reckoning that is designed to wipe out all living creatures shouldn't exist. I'll say cockroaches are worse. Besides, they look funny.

WIW: Ben Affleck or Matt Damon? 
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: kindofdoon on October 08, 2010, 12:44:03 PM
I like Matt Damon, and I don't know much about Ben Affleck, so by default, Ben Affleck is worse. Apparently they're good friends, right?

WIW: a sphere or a cube?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: Haids1987 on October 08, 2010, 06:37:10 PM
A sphere!  Haven't you seen that freaky movie?  (Aptly named: "Sphere." :P)

WIW: Being yelled at by the driver beside you or being yelled at by a pedestrian?
Title: Re: Which is worse?
Post by: Fierce Deity on October 08, 2010, 06:42:12 PM
Being yelled at by another driver is worse. I don't think it wise for a pedestrian to yell at someone who is operating a big piece of machinery.

WIW: Trans fat or Saturated fat?
