    Ever wonder how many things we take for granted in life? Well, as this tournament here proves, I certainly do. No joke while watching a football game (Rams vs. Bucs I think) I thought about putting together this tourney to test and see what kind of funny priorities the HTF membership has. Here goes: I put together a list of 32 common items we use each and every day. Your job is to vote for the commodity you think you can A. absolutely not live without or B. more important. Only you, the voter, may determine what situation you'll find yourself in.
    Tourney Winner: Computers
    East Bracket
    1. toothpaste
    2. pants
    3. shirts
    4. facial tissue paper
    5. home AC/heating
    6. fresh O.J.
    7. pencil
    8. soap (liquid or bar)
    9. cups/mugs
    10. deodorant
    11. computer
    12. television
    13. cabinets/shelves
    14. footwear (changed from shoes)
    15. soft tissue toilet paper
    16. doors
    West Bracket
    1. jackets/coats
    2. ink pen
    3. work AC/heating
    4. razors/shavers
    5. watch/clock
    6. spoon
    7. tape (adhesive)
    8. shampoo
    9. vehicular AC/heating
    10. socks
    11. phone (cellular/home)
    12. underwear
    13. eye glasses
    14. chairs
    15. prophylactics
    16. fork
    Let's start with the East bracket. If this helps, imagine that whatever you vote against, you're not aloud to have for the rest of your life [​IMG]
    1. toothpaste
    vs.
    16. doors
    What's more important to you? Having the ability to instill security and drawing boundaries in a space, or simply having that nice wonderful clean feeling your teeth can enjoy?

    One could say doors and chew Trident; or one could say toothpaste and go to the head allowing everyone to see.

    I'll go with doors. I like my private time and there are many other ways to clean my teeth.

    In a very tight race, doors wins. It must be more important to set boundaries than to clean one's teeth.

    Next up:

    8. soap (liquid or bar)

    vs.

    9. cups/mugs

    What's more important? Cleasning oneself or having something to hold our favorite beverage in?
