More free time is the option on offer
in this week's 'Would You Rather?' dilemma.
In a few days time on 28th July 2017 the nation gets to celebrate National 4pm Finish Day!  Seriously, I'm not making it up, that's actually a real day.  Presumably invented by a lazy person.

Anyway, to celebrate National 4pm Finish Day, this week's 'Would You Rather?' dilemma has a similar related theme.  The dilemma is this...

'Would you rather finish work one hour earlier every Friday, or would you rather start work one hour later every Monday?'

Both options would be very appealing, but if you could only choose one, which option would you choose?

National 4pm Finish Day is sponsored by Red Bull, so presumably that means Red Bull will reimburse all employers for loss of wages so that everyone can go home early!

Legal Disclaimer: Please note, the above assumption has not been verified. Just because it's National 4pm Finish Day, that doesn't mean you can just walk out of your job at 4pm without your boss's approval.  All finish times are subject to your usual contractual agreement with your employer, unless agreed otherwise. Please check with your employer so see if they have an agreement in place with Red Bull before going home early.

This week's 'Would You Rather?' dilemma has a sporting theme to it, and it's based on a quote from former tennis player Jimmy Connors who once said...

"I hate to lose more than I love to win."

I thought that was an interesting dilemma to consider.  I hate losing and I love winning, and it would be tricky to decide which I hate/love most.

But what about you?  What do you hate or love most?  Do you hate to lose more than you love to win?  Or do you love to win more than you hate to lose?

Christmas lights: Multi-coloured or single colour?
This week's 'Would You Rather?' dilemma has a Christmas theme to it.  It's a simple question; when putting up your Christmas decorations, do you prefer your Christmas lights to be all one colour, or multi-coloured?

To help you decide I've included a side by side comparison of how multi-coloured lights and single coloured Christmas lights look.

Both Christmas trees look great, but which do you prefer?

Would you rather kids got less presents this Christmas, or...

...or change the past?

A time travel themed 'Would You Rather?' dilemma.
Being able to predict the future would open up all sorts of possibilities, such as opportunities for financial profit, and being able to avoid significant mistakes in life.

Being able to change the past would also open up numerous opportunities, the main one being that you could rewrite your bad decisions so that they never happened.

Both options would be pretty cool, but if you could only choose one option, which one would it be?  To change the past?  Or predict the future?

A scary 'Would You Rather? for Halloween.
It's only a few days until Halloween, so this week's 'Would You Rather?' dilemma has a supernatural theme to it.  You have to decide whether you'd prefer to live in a world where there was an outbreak of zombies, or a world where there was an outbreak of werewolves, or a world where there was an outbreak of vampires?

Of course, if you had a choice you'd opt to live in a world where there were no supernatural outbreaks, but that isn't one of the choices.

So that's the scenario.  The world is about to be struck by a supernatural outbreak and you get to choose what it is.  A zombie infestation, a werewolf outbreak, or a scourge of vampires.  Which would you prefer?

...or would you rather hang out in the real world for a day with a fictional character of your choice?

Star Wars and The Silver Surfer
This week's 'Would You Rather?' dilemma has a fictional theme to it.  It's a straight forward choice; you can either spend an entire day in the fictional world of your choice, or spend a day in this world with the fictional character of your choosing.

If it was me the fictional world I'd choose would be the 'Star Wars' universe, and the fictional character I'd chose would probably be the Silver Surfer.  However, the rules state I can only go for one, so it would be tricky to decide which of the two options I'd go for, because both options would be really cool.

Canine selfishness or selflessness?

Loyal dogs dressed up for National Dog Day.
In a few days time it'll be National Dog Day, so in honour of our canine friends, this week's 'Would You Rather?' question is a question for dogs.  However, most dogs can't use the internet so their owners will have to answer on their behalf.

The question for dog owners is this...

"If your dog had to choose between saving your life or a treat, would they choose to save your life, or would they go for the treat?"

...would you deliberately get a question wrong to help win money for charity?

The Chaser
For the benefit of anyone who hasn't seen The Chaser, it's a TV quiz show where members of the public compete against the Chaser to win a large cash prize.  However, occasionally celebrities play to win money for charity.  The 'Chaser' has to try to prevent the contestants from winning by answering questions correctly in order to 'chase' down their score.

So the dilemma this week is this...  If you were 'The Chaser' and you knew that getting lots of questions right could potentially cause a charity to miss out on winning some cash, would you deliberately get a few questions wrong?

Euro 2016 tickets.
As a football fan, I decided to take this week off work so I could enjoy Euro 2016, so it seems appropriate for this week's 'Would You Rather?' dilemma to have a football theme to it.

The dilemma is this...  Would you rather your national team won the Euros, or your local team won the Premier League?  If you're not from England then adapt the scenario to your own national league, i.e. La Liga, Serie A, etc, but it's basically a dilemma about what matters most to you as football fan?  Your local team?  Or your national team?

And if you're a glory supporter and you don't support your local team, then obviously adapt the question so that whichever big club you've chosen to follow would win the Premier league, rather than your local club.

...which of the following names would you choose?

"You called your son Mars Bar!  What a stupid name!
I called my son Fried Egg."
This week's 'Would You Rather?' dilemma is based on a chapter from the book 'True Or False: A Light-Hearted Collection of 100 Facts And Bluffs' by Charles Fudgemuffin.  The chapter reports on strange names that, for various reasons, weird parents have given their children.  Some of the names covered in the book are:

1) Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii
2) @
3) Many Volcanoes Erupt Moldy Jam Sandwiches Unusually Niffy Phew
4) Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116
5) Mars Bar

...and yes, that fourth name is not a spelling mistake!

Anyway, if you had to have one of the above names, and you weren't allowed to change it by deed poll to something more normal, which of the above names would you choose to be stuck with?
