    This week's "Lessor of Two Evils"

    At the end of November I kicked this weekly thread/poll off. I missed last week and am getting it restarted today. If you want to see the first Lessor of Two Evils, click here.

    So...on with it...

    This week is not sports related.

    Which scenario is better....

    - Death by drowning.

    or

    - Death by burning.

    Thought about it as a result of a horror movie we recently watched.

    ***Remember, you're voting for and making your case for which scenario is better, not worse.***

    Drowning is better because you can somewhat keep your good looks even after your dead. LOL.

    Just knowing what kind of pain I've experienced burning my hands/fingers, I couldn't imagine the pain my whole body would feel... And drowning seems to happen faster as well...

    this seems pretty morbid.

    Would you rather A) answer the question? B) read the Deion thread?

    Either one is better than reliving the Hampton game.

    Re: This week's "Lessor of Two Evils"

    Suppose you burn in a WHOOSH? That would be betetr than being stuck underwater at the pier hoping to float up.

    Bet you will not see philosophical questions like this on the paid bulletin boards. Right Amy?

    Re: This week's "Lessor of Two Evils"

    Not to be too much of a *****, but I believe the word you are searching for in the English language is lesser, unless you are expecting people to lease one option or the other. I guess it would depend. Drowning sounds more peaceful and painless, but if the burning up happened in the blink of an eye, that might be a good way to go too.

    Re: This week's "Lessor of Two Evils"

    Drowning...hands down.

    But the best way to go? Has to be the hose from the muffler to the car window sitting in your garage. You just fall asleep...

    (This is a morbid thread...not that there's anything wrong with that)
