Random Poll [Mar. 12th, 2008|09:50 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick

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

Which is better?

Sliced Bread
AIDS vaccine

(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

Not planning on sleeping with any AIDS victims so I'll go with more convenient toast.

I'm going with sliced bread because, when you open a bag of slice bread by god there are bread slices in it. So given the choice between actual bread and a pie-in-the-sky product, I'll take the one that exists.

Besides, I'd only buy an AIDS vaccine once. I buy bread several times weekly.

Re: Obligatory slashdot reference

I'd vote you up, but I don't have any mod points at the moment.

We're not talking about pre-sliced from-the-store sliced bread. We're talking about the mere concept of sliced bread. You can't slice it yourself because you've never heard of it and the concept is too radical to even imagine.

It's like if the wheel hadn't been invented yet!

If I had AIDS or the beginnings of such, then sure, the vaccine. But if I have the munchies on a Sunday morning, I'm not tossing back a vial of that stuff. Bring on the separated yeasty goodness.

As Heywood Banks so eloquently said, "YEAH TOAST!"

Coincidence, I guess. Don't have TV.

in our generation, an AIDS vaccine means having sex without a condom is less likely to KILL you.

sliced bread, whatever.

If you have sex with sliced bread, you probably won't die! It's just as fun as the real thing.... *shifts eyes around the room*

sliced bread saves many millions of lives each year due to people not accidentaly cutting themselves (like they used to do on bagels) and getting infections and dying.

bread, hands down.

What about bread that is sliced (gasp! Concept!!) and also possesses the AIDS vaccine! Perhaps from... sesame.

How about an AIDS vaccine you can spread on sliced bread? That way, we all win.

No sliced bread = no grilled cheese sandwiches or hamburgers.

No grilled cheese sandwiches or hamburgers = might as well have the AIDS and die.
