Today's: would you rather always look great to everyone but sound stupid or always have the right thing to say but frequently look terrible

Pretty split. I'm going rather look bad and sound good.

You can look great, never open your mouth and people will still automatically respect you. If you look horrible (I'm going with unkempt, bad personal hygiene), it's an uphill battle no matter what.

well as someone who looks terrible *and* sounds stupid, both of these options are appealing to me but i think i'm leaning towards the latter.

hell, even if you do open your mouth and let the stupid drip out, people will twist themselves into knots in search of an excuse to believe you somehow aren't as dumb as you sound.

Today's: If you had to finish one in a single sitting, would you rather have to eat 10 lbs of cheese or a 1 lb bucket of peanut butter with nothing drink

The form and type of cheese is up to you and you can drink anything you want. There's no time limit but you have to sit at the table until you're done. You can't go to the bathroom.

this is a great question

obviously I'd rather eat peanut butter but without anything to drink I think I'd be in real trouble and at risk of choking to death pretty quickly

My colon is screaming at the thought of 10 lbs of cheese but having a beverage it would certainly be more pleasant going down than peanut butter with nothing to drink.

Yeah it’s awful but the cheese is sadly the right answer.

I'd pick the peanut butter because it would probably choke me to death faster than whatever horrible thing kills me as a result of eating 10 pounds of cheese.

Once while stoned I tried housing some peanut butter and it was an awful experience. 0/10 would not recommend.

Today's question might be my favorite:

When faced with an attacking grizzly bear, would you rather be armed with a guitar made of solid maple or a saxaphone?

I'm still going sax, because metal seems safer, but I guess you could make the argument the maple guitar could be busted to make something pointy, but the solid part would make that hard for someone weak like me with no experience in smashing guitars.

I am so shitty at music i have an equal chance on the guitar, an instrument i know precisely 3 chords on, and the sax, which I know 0 notes and probably could make nothing but a honking sound.

Imagining the last thing I do before I'm mauled to death is trying and failing to blow a single note on the sax

i feel like it'd be easier to hit a bear with a guitar because it's lighter.

Guitar... you can sling it across your back so that when you lie down on your stomach it will slow down the grizzly ripping open your kidneys and cornhole by a few seconds.
