god i'm nuts, crazy, weird

Fifty fifty.

So I've been catching up with a TV show last night, and the season ended with a character asking a question similar to the first one I've asked here to the audience of the show. Because it's a fascinating question, I'm asking it of my LJ friends. So have at it. [Also, I need a geek icon.]

Poll #815584 Thought Experiment
