A while back my friend Zhubin asked a terrific question. He wanted to know if people would rather be the ruler of an ancient empire, with no modern comforts, or live in modern times with little influence and power. I'm not going to ask that question, because, well, I dare not tread where genius has wrung its sweaty gym towel.
But, in a similar mold, I have decided that on occasion I will stoop from Philosofickle's usual high-falutin' discourse, to ask those deep and ponderous hypotheticals which torture the soul of humanity. So, without further adieu, I give you the first Question:
If you could give up your current urinary bathroom patterns in exchange for a once-a-day half hour pee, would you? What if instead it was a weekly 4 hour-long whiz-fest? Keep in mind that this only applies to peeing.
I, for one, would take the half-hour a day. I don't like how frequently I need to interrupt what I'm doing because I need to go to the bathroom. Plus I so rarely get to see all of a movie. Darn small bladder. And besides, if you had a half hour you could just set up and read a book or something. It sounds good to me.
Also, I'd like to thank Mark Danielson for this question. I've manipulated it slightly, but this is more or less his brain child. Needless to say, I'm jealous that his brain has birthed such beautiful babies while mine just sputters aimlessly.
So, there you have it. There's the question. Let's have some answers:
One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
