Would anyone ever want to destroy the bigger country instead of the smaller one? What would be the advantage?

You are Osama bin Laden. due to a freak clerical error, you have been given 72 virgins instead of eternal inundation in a lake of fire that burns but does not consume. Do you bring the error to someone's attention and suffer physical anguish for eternity, or keep quiet and enjoy the virgins, knowing that you are in the wrong place for eternity?

zuppa toscana, of course! I like my cheese, no question there, but I like my arteries much, much better. Furthermore, zuppa toscana sounds like a nice dish! I guess this is a question that's only a dilemma for an american.
[oh, snap! national stereotypes!]

You must either loose [as in dropped to very low levels] your ability to laugh, to empathize with others, or to think critically and rationally. The two abilities you choose will be greatly enhanced, but will never be able to work together or at the same time, so, for instance, you can empathize and laugh, but not at the same time. Which two do you pick ?

Not really a competition here. Nerf laughter.

You must be a participant in a huge, world-changing event in the near future, and have the opportunity to pick sides. One side is clearly in the right and the other side is pretty evil, but you know that the morally good side is doomed to lose, with the evil side coming out on top. Either way, your survival is guaranteed. Which side do you pick?

the good side, of course. even if my survival wasn't guaranteed. I'd do a lot of things... I'd cheat, steal and lie, but fight against my principles.... not so much.

also, nerf laughter? really? I'd have nerfed empathy!
laughter is awesome.

You must be a participant in a huge, world-changing event in the near future, and have the opportunity to pick sides. One side is clearly in the right and the other side is pretty evil, but you know that the morally good side has a great chance to loose. You're likely to die if you stick with the good guys, and sure to get a position of much power if you switch to the bad guys. That position of power might in turn allow you to secretly fight against the evil thing from the inside. Which side do you pick?

But what happens in a few years when Obama declares war on Pakistan (read the New York Times, they are already planting news items to get people psyched for it)? He'll hardly inspire confidence up at the podium while he's wearing a hospital gown and coughing up a lung.
