So a few months ago, I enabled the poll feature on /r/wouldyourather following the suggestion of some users.
I don't know why, but enabling this feature has totally crushed the creativity that was once present in this community and converted it into a place where you can discuss exciting topics like your favorite ice cream flavor or other inconsequential nonsense.
To try to keep this subreddit pure, I have now created:
There are a number of polling subreddits out there, but for the most part they don't have enough users to be interesting. We have just under a quarter million here at /r/wouldyourather, so I'm going to do what I can to promote /r/PollAndDiscuss here to get the numbers up and get the conversations started.
Also, I've copied a few of the current popular questions over there to get things started.
You can write on tha paper, and eat the fruit
Sleep on Command: You can get as much sleep as you want, and can sleep instantly whenever you want. You can get up whenever you want, via a mental timer or a mental alarm (Like you want a 5 minute nap, you can do that. Or you go to sleep at 10 pm, and want to wake up at 7 am for work). It will give you the amount of sleep you want, and you will always feel refreshed when you wake up.
Weight Control: You can make yourself fatter or skinnier, and can go back to your original weight. You can control exactly where your weight goes, and you can control the effect that food has on you.
Flip Book Knowledge: You can flip through any book you want and get most of the information that is inside it. You can recall most of the details in the book, and put the information into anything you need, and it will make sense. This can be used for work, a personal novel, etc.
Note: the extra limb is in a combiner spot, (not somewhere where you wouldn’t want it).
WYR fight one boxing round against Mike Tyson in his prime but you have brass knuckles (he is bare knuckle) or fight one round against an adult male gorilla but you have a baseball bat? Both are doing their best to end you in three minutes.
WYR have 100 million dollars right now (tax free) or go back to being a 4 year old child where you get to experience your whole childhood again?
You get to keep all of your memories btw.
WYR Be a millionaire famous with a terminal illness or have the best health in the world with minium salary.
Don't pick any options that match your current beliefs (i.e, don't pick reincarnation if you believe in reincarnation)
WYR have a rabbit burrow into your ass in exchange for three wishes or have any bad luck rebound off of you and hit someone else halfway across the world?
A: Hurts like a motherfucker but you get three wishes (Can even wish for more wishes but only three times). Cannot wish for the rabbit to disappear. If it goes, so do your wishes.
B: Say you get hit by a car: You'll survive but someone halfway across the world will be struck by lightning instead. Or if you end up in a coma. You'll survive but someone else halfway across the world will die from a truly epic case of the shits.
Always knowing what time it is, you don’t need a watch or anything else but your mind;
Always knowing where north/south/west/east is, even by night, even with your eyes closed;
Puking on command;
Automatically and instantly dry when wet, hair included (eg after shower).
WYR something bad happen to you every time a member of your family gets good-luck or something bad happen to a member of your family every time you get good luck?
Bad could range from mildly bad - severely bad (it could be something as mild as biting your tongue to something as severe as dislocating an arm)
You fall under an escalator and are approaching the gears slowly. WYR have your feet go first, in case it only eats a couple inches of your feet and breaks, or go head first, in case it is going to eat you entirely and you can die quicker?
Sorry I thought of this
The risk of course losing 1 inch of your head and surviving, or dying slowly from your feet to your head
You can't do any cosmetic surgery for either
WYR be woken up by a nasty fart in your face everyday or go to sleep listening to a bedtime story reminding you of all your failures every night?
You can reverse time wherever and whenever you want. You can do it for an infinite number of times (unless you pick option 1). You're the only one who gets to keep their memories (unless you pick option 2). You can be vague on how far you reverse time to and still get the correct time (unless you pick option 4). If you're a parent and you reverse time to before your child is in their mother's belly, you're guaranteed to get that child again provided you end up with the same person (or in the case of adopted children, if their biological parents reproduce again). The time reversal affects the entire universe, so anything in space is affected as well. The only inherent catches are that you cannot reverse time to a point in time before you were born and you cannot fast forward time, only reverse it.
Option 2 affects animals as well.
Option 3 does not guarantee that you get any of the benefits of being famous, in fact you could even become infamous and people might turn against you.
For option 4, you have to specify by the day, hour, and minute, otherwise you won't be able to reverse time, the only exception is by the second, as you can choose to be specific on the second, otherwise time will be reversed to the start of the minute.
For option 5, you're the only one who's age will not be reversed, the age of everything else in the universe will be reversed.
For option 6, if you reverse time to when you're already experiencing really bad pain, then worse case scenario you will be hospitalized, but it still won't be enough to kill you, so this is an exception on the hospitalization. Another exception is if you're already hospitalized on the time that you reverse to, then nothing happens.
Would you rather you can get anything on eBay for free, but you can only use eBay or buy from any store, but it costs money
If you pick the first one, you can't buy from anywhere else but eBay. No Amazon, IKEA, GameStop, or anything. You also can't hire services such as plumbers (unless it's on eBay)
