    This is classic game theory. You only reach the Nash Equilibium by picking option B. If you picked A and it's 50% then you'd get a net loss of 40k over those who picked B. If you picked B and it's >50%, you're on 10k net loss to the minority that picked A, but if it's 2 years ago  
    Why random? And don't bring back Edison xD he was an idiot. He didn't invent the light bulb, he was a businessman. He owned a company that developed the lightbulb. Bring back Tesla, the scientist who worked for him and actually made the stuff 2 years ago  
    That would be true if everyone was created equal. Which they are not. The 5 people you bring back could be Einstein, Newton, Tesla, Lovelace, Galileo etc. Imagine what they could do when our current technology... propel the world forward decades 2 years ago  
    You don't need to be married to reproduce... 2 years ago  
    It's yearly exactly the same as X-mas though. And technically I was 0 months old at my 1st bday and 10 months old at my 1st X-mas so for every X-mas i go though i'd be older than the same number of bdays 2 years ago  
    Nationalism causes too many problems 2 years ago  
    Even if i had more time i'm never gonna get off my ass 2 years ago  
    No you wouldn't, or you'd have picked it xD 2 years ago  
    Celebs can be just as great as your crush, + rich 2 years ago  
    idk why but I always hated Buzz and Woody... 3 years ago  
    You can handle not being able to see anything? 3 years ago  
    I like to think of myself as a Secular Humanist. Anyway, it's always better to advance society, not stick to old traditions and let the rest of the world pass you by... 4 years ago  
    Make sure they're a good kisser before going too serious. 4 years ago  
    Dragon dance. 4 years ago  
    I don't want to destroy the world... And I need to blink. 4 years ago  
    Science is the subject that actually makes something useful out of math. 4 years ago  
    Sabretooth is essentially the same as Wolverine, except not weighed down by giant chucks of metal (he would actually be able to swim), and doesn't rip his skin open every time he used his power. 4 years ago  
    Definitely not. Many YouTubers have a unique YouTube channel. On the other hand, all information on Wikipedia does come from external sites :) 4 years ago  
    I've been to a school where teachers had canes that they would hit the kids' hands with. 4 years ago  
    Prevent Pearl Harbour and the Axis Powers might have won. It caused the US to actively fight with the Allies. 4 years ago +1
    I never heard about it. But apparently you have! Good on you. 4 years ago  
    You can't force someone into an 18 year commitment they aren't prepared for. 4 years ago  
    Gold. If I pick wrong, it resells for more. 4 years ago  
    Um. A pound is worth $1.5 4 years ago +2
    No need for condoms or birth control or worrying about accidental pregnancy, or hormones? Yes. 4 years ago  
    Loop would be so good. I can do anything over and over again, no one would remember. Therefore, no consequences. 4 years ago  
    Oceans are much less affected by natural disasters than on land. Also, I can go up and down! It's like pseudo flying.... 4 years ago  
    China has better things to do than invading the US... Like pulling their population out of poverty. 4 years ago  
    I hate Shakespeare. 4 years ago  
    Money decreases in value over time because of inflation. Better get more early so I can establish a more reliable source of income. 4 years ago  
    I would scam away all the dumb rich people's money. 4 years ago +1
    I don't understand this question. Muscles cannot function without bones, and you won't be able to do anything either way... 4 years ago  
    If you do that, you'll probably pull tons of other metallic stuff towards you too.... You can't switch channels with a toaster. 4 years ago +2
    Brock makes great food. Tracy is annoying. 4 years ago +1
    *cough* "You're" 4 years ago  
    I don't think a doctor should ever decide some people are worth more than others... They should try to save all of them to the best of their ability. If they have the medicine to cure one person, they have a duty of care to make sure they do the best they can for them, not kill them and harvest their organs. 4 years ago  
    Why would I vote for the one I hated most?? Oh well. I can always move to a country I actually liked until next election.... 4 years ago +1
    Metal conducts electricity. Lightning will fry war machine. 4 years ago  
    I have the foldable chair, so I guess A looks more interesting to me XD 4 years ago  
    Moo moo milk! And people won't get sick and stuff, because you have all the futuristic medicine and free health care. Pokemon are like animals except super powered and sentient. 4 years ago  
    Marriage is for two people who love each other. Why does gender matter? 4 years ago +2
    Tons of theories in what caused the Big Bang, from aliens playing or a collision of the multiverse. However, if you've every heard of the Last Thursdayism, which is the theoretical idea that everything was created last Thursday. Obviously we can't disprove this, but we are rational enough to say it is false. Going with this idea, we would go with the theory that makes the least assumptions. Believing that everything is formed with atoms which was first created from fusion and the energy if the Big Bang, although difficult to prove, makes less assumptions than say an omnipotent being created everything in seven days and some how violates the Law of the Conservation of Mass and pretty much everything else, and completely ignores the stages of micro bacteria and dinosaurs, and left Earth without any trace except a book. 4 years ago +6
    Ayyyyyyy 4 years ago +6
    Sleep. 4 years ago  
    Being able to actually see helps you look better. 4 years ago  
    I'm not strong enough to carry people... 4 years ago  
    At least they'll come back after a cliff hanger. 4 years ago  
    I will not survive loosing 1-5 hours of every sense every week. Imagine... No sight, sound, touch, hearing, taste, temperature, pain, kinetic sense, acceleration sense... The list goes on. You won't even know if you wanted to pee! You would have no input from the outside world at all! It's horrifying. 4 years ago +1
    I personally prefer Serif fonts to Non Serif... So Times New Roman! 4 years ago  
    Why are Americans so afraid of communism? 4 years ago  
    I hate cooking. 4 years ago  
    Anarchy is not necessarily bad.... It's just everyone living with their own ideals instead of under one person's ideal. It'll probably be chaotic, but at least you can do and believe what you want... It's the complete freedom of thought, religion, education, morality etc. vs conforming to the ideals of one person. 4 years ago  
    Studying would be so much easier. Just imprint all of the internet's information into my brain. 4 years ago  
    How can you handle missing out on colour and computers? 4 years ago  
    It's not OCD, OCD is a disorder, whereas being slightly perfectionist etc is normal 4 years ago  
    *cough* Seals hump penguins when they have no ability to conceive. Clown fish change sexes. Both snails get pregnant when they 'do it'. Sea slugs 'penis fence' and the loser becomes pregnant. A flower can have only stamens (male reproductive organ), or only carpels (female reproductive organ), or both (perfect flower), some plants don't even have flowers, they reproduce asexually (like ferns). Horses and donkeys can conceive a child when they don't even have the same number of chromosomes. Nature does not have a 'natural order', nature is ridiculously creative. Heterosexuals aren't 'normal' people. They're just common people. Appreciate the beauty of natural diversity. 4 years ago  
    Domestic abuse is terrible... At least you can dump the guy who cheats. Abusive relationships can be very difficult to get out of. 4 years ago  
    Life becomes very dull and repetitive if you lived forever. Besides, what would you do if you were immortal? People who have tons of time and no motivation don't do anything, which makes immortality pointless.... But yeah, having all the money in the world will f*ck up the economy. I'll just dump it all back into circulation immediately by buying lots of land and raw minerals. Those will only increase in value ;) 4 years ago  
    Owls can survive in cities. Wolves can't. I would not want to be forced out of everywhere humans enter or kept in a conservation habitat or something... 4 years ago  
    $1000 is not that much... This is pretty pointless, to be honest. 4 years ago  
    I don't really consider unborn babies people... They're a mass of cells without an awareness or life, supported completely by the mother. Anyway, a lot of people did not choose to get pregnant. If you're a teenager or a victim of rape, a baby should not destroy your life. It's their body, their life. Their choice. 4 years ago  
    *Cough* I'm female. Your statistics are not completely accurate :P 4 years ago  
    I want to do what I want... Without being restricted from everything 4 years ago  
    You spelt moron wrong. And you don't know that! We barely explored anything yet, don't assume what we can't know. 4 years ago  
    There is so much left to do! Automate boring repetitive tasks like cooking, build telescopes to more efficiently explore space, figure out how to generate energy with ion fusion or antimatter, cure cancer and other diseases with biotechnology, the list goes on and on. Think broad! Tesla was experimenting with renewable energy when the world lived on fossil fuels. 4 years ago  
    I feel like you won't hate it if you're good at it. But I'd still rather do something I enjoy. Practice makes perfect! 4 years ago  
    Sexism affects the whole / half the world (depending how you look at it) while racism still only affects a minority... 4 years ago +1
    I identify as Cisgender. But are you talking about gender or sex in your question? 4 years ago  
    Reading is not dumb, but I never liked the books. The writing isn't all that special... It was just a novel idea. The movies show the action much better anyways. If you want beautiful language, go read a classic like "Lord of the Flies" or "Brave New World" 4 years ago  
    ... Earth is a tiny chunk of rock in space. There's a trillionbillionmillion planets like Earth in space, it really isn't very special. Out there is where all the novel things are. ;) besides, why not go on an intergalactic conquest and secure the existence of the human species? 4 years ago  
    Liar how? I for one wouldn't want to get caught in domestic abuse for money. 4 years ago  
    You would gets lots of people hitting on them if they're really hot... I'd go kind of mad. 4 years ago  
    World hunger is a much bigger problem right now. Many wars are people competing for resources anyway. Besides, most countries have enough sense not to get dragged into a war, whereas many countries can't do anything to help starving citizens. 4 years ago  
    Having a bad teacher doesn't mean you'll be dumb... Dumb people are dumb even if they have a good teacher. I don't need a mean overlord to tell me stuff anyway, I'm perfectly capable of learning on my own. 4 years ago  
    Why the hell will I need to make people fart?? If I had flash light hands I wouldn't have to have a bedside lamp... And that'll stop me from hitting my hands on it at night. 4 years ago  
    Does that mean if your parents die you have to kill yourself?? 4 years ago  
    Capitalism is a system where greedy rich earthlings who do not wish to share don't have to, and let the less fortunate starve on the streets. And FYI socialism is not communism, and socialist countries have some of the highest quality of life, e.g. Denmark, Neatherlands, Canada, Norway etc. 4 years ago  
    ....I don 't pee in the shower. People actually do that?? 4 years ago  
    Why?? I feel like they're all the same thing, wishing for good things from an omnipotent being in the sky, does it matter what that being is called? I like to think of myself as a Secular Humanist :P 4 years ago  
    I hate the cold :/ 4 years ago  
    Reality has limits, imagination does not ;) 4 years ago  
    I don't really need to see my face... I can just ask other people if there is anything on my face. 4 years ago  
    I'd be able to do it again every night! 4 years ago  
    Palau has a lake where you can swim with jelly fish! The jelly fish had no predators there, so they lost their stingers. It's quite beautiful. 4 years ago +1
    Belly button has tons of bacteria, seriously, people discovered a bunch of new bacteria species by taking samples from belly buttons. Ear wax on the other hand is acidic kill bacteria and to help stop fungi and stuff from growing in your ears. I'll take the ear wax. 4 years ago +2
    Chalk is also the corpses of microbes 4 years ago  
    I don't think it'll hurt that bad if you go quickly.... 4 years ago  
    When you sneeze your heart stops! Sneezing so much will give you a heart attack. 4 years ago +8
    You would be consciously deciding to kill a person. 4 years ago  
    Plastic will kill you. 4 years ago  
    FYI it never says the snakes are alive either. But if they are, it'd be faster. 4 years ago  
    I'd rather have to deal with stupid people than an unstoppable virus... Better the devil you know. 4 years ago  
    I know how to deal with sharks.... I don't know how to fend off lions though. 4 years ago  
    It really doesn't taste like chicken. 4 years ago  
    I've eaten both. Snails honestly tastes better than frogs. 4 years ago  
    USA has some big guns... 4 years ago  
    Candles FTW 4 years ago  
    I'd save way more time if I don't sleep. 4 years ago  
    I can build Atlantis. And never go back to the surface again, just swim and eat fish. Taking over the oceans = taking over Earth :p 4 years ago  
    A bird in hand hand is better than two in the bush. 4 years ago  
    You will. Without a protective suit, the UV rays from the sun will damage your DNA, the extreme cold will be... Extremely cold, and without gravity, the air in your lungs will expand and blow up. But hey, it's a cool way to die. 4 years ago  
    I think doctors deal with a gunshot wound better than a random giant bleeding gash... 4 years ago  
    Just kill yourself immediately. 4 years ago  
    Always eating meat will give your scurvy and other bad disease things :c 4 years ago  
    Nope. 4 years ago  
    How can you stand missing out colour? 4 years ago  
    I like my life, thanks. 4 years ago  
    Lawyer saves peoples lives too. From bankruptcy. I just don't want to be always around sick people. 4 years ago  
    If you're blindfolded at least other drivers can see you. 4 years ago +1
    Sneezing uncontrollably will probably give you a heart attack since your heart stops when you sneeze. 4 years ago +37
    I'm in Australia, so no contest. 4 years ago  
    Oh my gosh, Natasha Romanoff! *Fan girls* 4 years ago
