Possibly-inebriated people at dinner just requested I post a poll:

Poll #1153379
Open to: All, detailed results viewable to: All, participants: 438

Which is better?

View Answers
Sliced Bread
137 (31.3%)
AIDS vaccine
301 (68.7%)

(Seriously, don't even ask me how they got there.)

Update: The drunk people are not happy with the current 5-13 results in favor of an AIDS vaccine and would like to remind you that:
  • sliced bread includes toast
  • bagels were inspired from sliced bread (and are, in fact, bread that is sliced)
  • and that you may change your vote

Yes, but the fact that it was sliced didnt affect the penicillin. If we were talking JUST bread, I might have to change my vote. ;)

How do you know? A slice of bread molds much faster than a loaf!
