    Recently I have had a few people ask for my opinion on things (not necessarily auto related) So, Ask me and I will reveal the mysteries of the universe and if by chance I don't know the answer I'll make up something. More like Ren and Stimpy's "Ask Dr. Stupid" then Dr. Karl Kruszelnicki on JJJ

    ok, well i was at the shops before. and i wanted a drink. so i walked to the chilled beverages section when i was suddenly struck with a crucially poignant dilemma.

    Orange Fanta?
    or
    Grape Fanta?

    now its not usual for me to get into such a huff when attempting to decide which flavour of soft drink i would like to taste, but today it just happened, as if my life was going to be decided by this one particular choice. everything had stopped. I later came to my senses somewhat and opted out all together in purchasing a 600ml Coca-Cola Vanilla.

    but was this the right choice?
    please help me Dr Karl.

    Now PLZB-18, you don't need to be shy. Your hypothetical "friends" secret is safe here, You did the right thing asking me. Now if you show people HE doesn't even know, where's the harm? He'll never find out. In fact you should post them here. I hope this has enlightened you. Thanks for calling in.

    Hmmmm, yes Todd that is a pickle... It's a common conundrum when faced with 2 options. Why let fate decide by flipping a coin? I prefer rock paper scissors, but when gambling with inanimate objects you can always win by tricking them. You did the next most logical thing calling on your algerbraic instincts. For example, Question: A or B answer is generally C.
    Inconclusion, can I summarise by asking you a question? Why did you pick an equally girly drink?

    this will open a can of worms indeed! 170mph you say... intriguing, and kind of scary.

    It could just be you, but then again as with most things it is largely subjective. From an evolutionary perspective, going back millions of years, the environment shaped us before we started to shape it. His friend maybe a product of his environment.
    If we were all lizards on the Galapagos Islands and then we would have evolved differently to thrive in our surroundings. Some to modify cars tastefully, others to drive them skillfully and maybe some sub-species would have just ran around flat out in 400m straight line at a time. My point is, to succeed in more than one field there must be inter-breeding of some sort at a moleculer and anatomic level.
