Which of these is the most fun? I must know, because one utterly asinine poll isn't enough! They are all great of course! woo-hoo!!

I gotta go with the hammer one, because "vote in polls" wasn't in there.

I'll add another choice. I drive a cab at nights on the weekends. Last night I acctually saw this choice.
Choice. You live in a questionable part of town. Your boyfriend doesn't come home, so you grab all of your girfriends, grab sledge hammers, run out to said boyfriends car, beat the crap out of it with sledge hammers, then run off being chased by the police. Think about it. Great anaerobic work swinging the sledges, with the added benefits of finishing up with a good cardio enhancing run. The fun part is when all the neighbors came out to watch, passing out beer and food at 3:00 AM, having a great time watching.

I see IM's point, and get why he put it where he did, but I suspect this is going to be a fun
topic/rant, and moving it to the lounge, as it's going to be way off diet/nutrition.

Can I add a choice too?

Choice: Have 5 kids with 5 different fathers, and move in with your "sista" who has done the same. Have a barbeque and invite all the "baby daddies." Inevitably the cops are called, and one of the daughters runs up to one of the fathers asking urgently, "daddy, daddy does this mean you have to leave now?"

Similar neighborhood as above… Got to love college apartments in the rough neighborhoods.

I know why Peter chose this one. He's an MMA fighter, and being hit really hard in the head is no big deal to him. In fact, since it is inevitably followed by loud cheering and applause, it really gives him a lot of pleasure.

I like those ideas. They are going on my list of things to do.

With this in a different section, hopefully the satire will not be lost on anyone.

I went with grass, but it depends on it's street value.

Hit on the head for me. As one of my colleagues here once said about another who had the habit of diving head-first into a dangerous part of the river, "not much to lose."

Umm... Could that be a choice? Sounds kind of gross yet super interesting at the same time.

I've been known to be a classically trained ignoramous, I like watching smart people think.

Ooh watching wounds on a diabetic patient heal. That way the fun lasts so much longer.

And some of their wounds are very interesting.
