We ALMOST went right to the topic of the show this week … Vampires vs. Werewolves vs. Zombies and Other Paranormals.
But then I rudely suggested we do another of our hypothetical questions.
A man offers you an opportunity to live for 50 more years if you press a button. However, someone you don’t know will die. Would you press the button?
None of us said we’d use the button … though Sean and I both said we’d use it if we could pick the person, including child molesters and other monsters.
Johnny said he’s not sure if he’d be interested in pushing the button at all, as he thinks 50 more years might make life less valuable. Part of life’s value, Johnny said, is that it is finite. To be able to extend it at will, makes it less so.
This question then spun off into variants of it until Sean finally admitted he’s a heartless bastard that would kill his own mother, with a sword no less, to establish 100 years of word peace.
Johnny talked a bit about the Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter book and how he’s not liking the end so much (though he doesn’t give any spoilers). Hint: Abe goes to a play and it doesn’t end well.
Around 24 minutes in, we got back on topic. Or, rather, to the topic, with Sean and Johnny favoring vampires while I said werewolves are cooler and scarier. Though we all agreed that unless you’re a furry, then vampires are sexier.
We then went on to do a couple more hypotheticals, including this gem:
You’re kidnapped and strapped to a gurney, and forced to choose something to be cut off — your legs, your arms, your eyes, or your penis. Which do you choose?
And then we ended the show with one more question regarding a UFO.
We wrapped up wondering whether the show was awesome or sucked.
So let us know… leave a comment or review below.
Also, feel free to answer the hypotheticals — what would you choose? Leave an answer below or call in.
