While I was twiddling my thumbs in a painfully uninteresting zoom class of mine, I began to brainstorm quite unpleasant activities that I would rather be doing instead of sitting through that god forsaken zoom. I was debating between pulling off one single arm hair at a time or undergoing breath-holding time trials with myself. I went with the latter.
After I regained consciousness, I began to ponder about other polarizing situations one would hope to avoid altogether. What if you were in some surreal celestial simulation where you were met with two awful scenarios and you had to pick one, but death could never be accepted as an option. Simply just one or the other. Thus, I created a ‘lesser of two evils’ list so hair-splittingly terrible and psychologically torturous, that it makes Guantanamo Bay look like summer camp.
Behold, my ultimate laundry list of “would you rather” questions. Happy trails!
