    Versus

    Since today is a lot of people's Friday, I'm doing the Friday thread early.

    I figured a "versus" thread. Someone throws out two things, you debate which is better/grosser/whatever, and why.

    I'll start. Better show: The Cosby Show or Fresh Prince, and why?

    Cosby, because that's one that I watched. And it had a spin off.

    "versus" vs. "vs."
    Or some people just use "v"

    Which is best?

    I use "v." because it's what's used in legal opinions and thus, sounds cool. I.e., Gibbons v. Ogden.

    Continuing a water cooler conversation from work this morning...

    Daniel Craig v. Pierce Brosnan v. Timothy Dalton v. Roger Moore v. George Lazenby v. Sean Connery

    Brosnan. He is the best 'bond' to me. I havent seen skyfall yet though.

    Sean Connery is the best Sean Connery. Which is always pretty awesome (think of any movie- it would be better with connery), but not necessarily the best Bond.

    He instantly brings a cool factor, but a Connery cool factor, not necessarily a Bond cool factor.
