The quest for truth

In the never-ending quest for truth which has dominated mankind's history, one question stands above them all.

No, not "Is there a god?" or "What is the meaning of life?" The real question is...

What is the coolest thing in the world?

There may, of course, be more than one coolest thing in the world; philosophy is all about keeping your options open. There are, however, things it cannot be; for example, we have ascertained conclusively that the coolest thing in the world is not Microsoft, armpit hair, or Hoboken, New Jersey.

Poll #647867 The coolest thing in the world!

What is the coolest thing in the world?

Flying monkeys

If other, what's the coolest thing in the world?

Feh, pirates *not* cool. (Okay, I have a warped perspective because I live on a boat and pirates stuff is kinda like stars&bars here, and also because I theoretically have to deal with *real* pirates.)

Two observations:

1) You have heretics who read your LJ. Not the cool kind of heretic mind you, but the straight-up wrong kind who thinks that pirates are cooler than ninjas. This should be cause for concern.

2) The wisdom you display by opting to use check boxes rather than radio buttons is pleasing. Of course, everyone in their right mind knows that the coolest things in the world are ninja robots, so radio buttons would've completely invalidated your poll. There's nothing sadder than finding out that your poll is invalid. Or something.

I'd like to expand a little on my answer. I said "gay cowboys" but I didn't mean it in a "gay cowboys in a touching story of forbidden love" kind of way.

I meant like in a "gay cowboys in a post-apocalyptic future, wearing studded leather cyberskins, riding mechanical bulls across the burnt countryside, and killing mutant hordes with six-shooters" sort of way.

Ah, ok. Thanks for the clarification.

Had me all worried, there, for a second.

BTW, this is even sillier than some of the survey's I've seen on MySpace.
