It's my favorite time of the week, it's time for the Weekly WYR. See if you're brave enough to choose a side in what surely are the universe's most difficult quagmires. And remember, if you've got a great WYR, send it to me at Streeter.Seidell @

Would You Rather…

  • Fight Orlando Bloom or have a main part in his next film? From Dale
  • Keep getting a NullPointerException deep within a massive sea code that the compiler debugger can't pinpoint, or have your professor tell you to redo all your array indices to start at 1, rather than 0? From Greg
  • Be unable to ever say yes to sex or unable to ever say no to sex?
  • Constantly have a runny nose or constantly have sharp, painful boogers?
  • Draw your superpowers from the sun, or only have them at night? From Jim
  • Walk on the moon or walk on water?
  • Sit on a wet toilet seat every time you twosie, or have to go without a seat? From Brian
  • Fight 12 6th graders or 6 12th graders? From Tom
  • Have sex with all the people you wanted to from high school or have sex with all the people you wanted to from college?
  • Be a tuba virtuoso or be able to play basic riffs on rock band instruments? From Nathaniel
  • Have permanent, controllable x-ray vision or be able to fly but only for brief periods of time?
  • Have to walk backwards or only on your heels for the rest of your life? From Tobi

And the award for I'm Not Joking Now goes to me.

  • Would you rather spend a few minutes thinking of your own WYR or steal one from a book and submit it as your own?

Two weeks ago a guy named Matt submitted a funny WYR and I posted it. Later I was told that it was lifted directly from a book called 'Would You Rather.' We don't have the manpower to check every user-submitted WYR for originality and I'd like to keep doing this column. Therefore, I need to be able to trust that the submissions are original and not lifted from something else. Don't be like Matt, don't steal other people's work.

S.S.S. (Sorry so serious)

Send your best (original) WYRs to
