On another thread, Vic M said that the most important question of all time is, “where did the universe and all it contains come from?” I say he is wrong. The most important question imo: “Is there one move that’s more likely to win a game of Rock-Paper-Scissors?” Is their a more important question? Please share your wisdom.

VicM insulted your intelligence, Jefe. That is so ironic and asinine that I was at a loss for a suitable rude retaliation.

Draft or bottle?

The Universe came out of a bottle, not a keg.  I know this.

The most important question of all time:

If you are Catholic: What would the pope do?
If you are Jewish: Why me?
If you are Buddhist: Does a dog have Buddha nature? Mu!

Any other additions?

The question: “where did the universe and all it contains come from?”

Josh: “What do you think, Vic?”

VicM: “It all came from God, of course.”

Josh: “Okay, that question has been answered sufficiently! So now, where did GOD come from? Who or what created God?”

Vic stutters a bit, then walks off grumbling to himself.

Then he stops as though thunderstruck, turns around brightly, raises both hands and exclaims, “God came from me!  Where else?”

It’s always good to know one is not alone.  But why the question mark?

The most important question of all time is-

Is ‘faith’ really frontal cortex fuckwittery? I mean, I really need to know.

You just think you need to know.  Oh, I just realized why Sander used a question mark; he hasn’t done it yet.

Faith is more likely, imo, caused by a severe deficit in the limbic system. The cortex apparently never develops in full blown religiostupidification. Sander is the expert on fuckwittery and general dipshitedness, perhaps he will enlighten us. Btw, I don’t even want to think about someone slapping Oprah’s ass…shivering in disgust…better slap her face.

Which one?  I mean, which expression?  Her knowing glance at the audience while the guest prepares a dish of avocado and ice cream?  No, hang on.  How about her squeamishness when Dr. Oz hands her a lung?

Unsmoked, just how much Oprah do you watch? You sound very familiar with the many facial expressions of the Almighty Creator of Dr. Phil.

I know.  It’s like my knowledge of ‘Friday Night Smackdown’, the Jewelry Exchange, and Benny Hinn’s Big Tent in Copenhagen.  I was just trying to get from ‘Lost’ to ‘America’s Got Talent’ when . . .

“Is there one move that’s more likely to win a game of Rock-Paper-Scissors?”

THE MOVE: Take the rock and hit your opponent in the head, and as he is falling, put the paper under him and take the scissors, cutting him into small pieces on the way down - then wrap up the pieces in the paper and take them out to sea in your boat to use as fish bait. Do this in one continuous motion, and it qualifies as “one move” under the official rules of Rock-Paper-Scissors.
