"The best sex of your life" vs. "The same, but with monkeys"

Ok, not the hardest, but the funniest!

And I resisted the urge to report "finding her clitoris" vs. "thunder and lightning" as a duplicate.

Easy! combine them! Forgive the sniper you snuck up behind as you knife him in the head!

"Staring into the eyes of the one you admire" VS. "Food you've cooked yourself" has now become in my mind "Staring into the eyes of food you've cooked yourself."

I'm not really sure why, but

The High ground vs. Boobs was an extremely tough decision.

I mean... having the high ground... it's an obvious advantage over the low ground. It's just a feeling of "Haha mother fucker! I'm up here and you're down here... you've got to fight not only me, but 9.81m/s^2 of gravity!"

But I surrendered and went with boobs. I'd rather be killed in a sword fight than live in a world without boobs.

Away! Away from the topic at hand! "the feeling of weightlessness" is the same thing as no gravity. Yay for relativity!

A pen that writes really nicely vs. Fairytales
Science vs. knowing what authors are alluding to (toughie, but I went with science...cause lets face it, Science kicks ass)
discovering a new word vs. reading in coffeeshops

This is waaay too much fun. It should be banned - I'm not getting any work done :D

Enthusiastic, Intelligent conversation about the things you love
OR

The feeling of weightlessness is when you aren't accelerating significantly relative to your immediate surroundings- i.e., the elevator cable is cut and so you float in the air above the floor. Fairly immediately, you find out gravity is still doing something.
For satellites, gravity is still acting on them, it's just keeping them in a circular path rather than pulling them in.

Being a racist is great fun! You get to hate people indiscriminately!

Indiscriminately within a small segment of the population, that is. Unless you're a really literal racist, and hate the human race as a whole.

Daniel finally realizing he really is the greatest
or

Er, is that one scripted? Since that seems more likely than people putting both in separately and me just happening to pull them together.

I've only just started. First question:

Dancing in the rain
Or
Having your partner ravage you as soon as you get home from work.

Wow, you must really like the rain with some kind of unnatural and irrational passion. That would be like a .12 second choice for me, and what I suspect is the rest of the not rain obsessed population...

Travel <?> Japanese Race Queens
I'm not all that into travel, so its not really a hard decision, but I have no idea what a Japanese Race Queen is, and I am extremely intrigued by the mere thought of the possibility that they exist!

A steak cooked to perfection <?> George W. Bush admitting he lied about Iraq
Goddamn, I do love a good steak, but is a steak worth possibly helping millions of people by FINALLY pulling out of Iraq? I have no idea.

Mini-cupcakes <?> Weapon of choice
I'm thinking this is one of those situations where you really can have teh best of both worlds.

Hearing a great song the 2nd time <?> Anti-cancer pants
There are anti-cancer pants!!! Would those only protect your legs from cancer? Unless they protect your whole body, I'll have to go with the song.

Realizing that you've paid all the bills and still have money left over for the thing you wanted to buy <?> A pen that always works
Sometimes its the simple things that get you through life.

I would definitely agree, except replace "A good book" with "screwing around on my computer/internet and not actually accomplishing anything that i would admit to anybody".

Eh. I've come to a conclusion that no matter how crap the alternative, I won't vote for any sex-based option. It's just silly.

Finding out that you're not seriously ill at all vs. Pie (you know it's awesome)

I'm inclined to go with pie, because, come on, it's pie. But... being seriously ill in exchange for pie? Pie is fleeting... serious illness is less so. But then, do I really want to live in a world without pie? How should I go about solving this problem? Do I aim for maximum gain (pie) or minimum loss (not being seriously ill)? Often I consider which one it would be worst not to have, but really, taking the inverse like that isn't really the same thing. It's vexing.
So, I got tired of the fact that the appearance of my band name in my signature made my posts on this forum the dominant result when googling for my music. Anyway, if you think I might happen to be a good musician, you can test this theory here.

Being able to stop time for everyone but you vs. Realizing the love of your life wants to marry you already.

Flawless spellig [sic] vs. Dating someone better than your ex.

Being a real ninja vs. Good hair days.

Piles of sleeping kittens vs. Tire swings.

Actually keeping your New Year's resolution vs. Jon Stewart.

Being a ping-pong ninja vs. Your significant other.

Doughnuts filled with ice cream vs. A new tech gadget.

My logic would be that the pie would help cure the illness. It's PIE!

I knew about xkcd for about 4 months before I found out about bestthing.info. I also just found out about Blue Eyes last week. Is there a list of all the things xkcd has done somewhere? Anyway, here are my tough choices:

Members of the opposite sex who are hot AND smart AND want to sleep with you AND rich <?> The perfect song
(I went with the latter, since the first would probably realize a minute later that they didn't really want to sleep with me.)
A meaningful, non-sexual relationship <?> Felatio [sic]
(I chose the former. But only because of the misspelling.)
The amazing sound that occurs when you make the perfect high five with your best friend, and everyone in the room looks at you two in awe <?> The perfect song
(I chose the former.)


Also, I have gotten "Take a kangaroo to work" a few times, and I always wonder if it means RIDE a kangaroo to work, or take one with you just to show it off.

"Having Telekinetic powers so you can undress a hot teacher in front of the whole class" or "Being the best at what you do"

I chose the latter.
