What's with all the "vs." threads all of the sudden? Is this Usenet or something?
Must everything be reduced to a competition, an either/or situation? Don't these subjects deserve more nuanced parameters for discussion? I'd like to call for a pre-emptive moratorium on the following thread topics:

Star Trek vs. Star Wars
Capt. Kirk vs. Capt. Picard
USS Enterprise vs. Star Destroyer
Harry Potter vs. Lord of the Rings
Original trilogy vs. Prequel trilogy
DTS vs. Dolby Digital
The Beatles vs. The Rolling Stones
Windows vs. Macintosh
SACD vs. DVD-A
Analog vs. digital
CGI vs. stop motion
Pre-E.T. Spielberg vs. post-Schindler's List Spielberg
Samantha vs. Jeannie
Buffy the Vampire Slayer vs. Sabrina the Teenage Witch
Law & Order vs. CSI
Deep Space Nine vs. Babylon Five
The Munsters vs. The Addams Family
Godzilla vs. King Kong
Poor black boy Michael Jackson vs. rich white woman Michael Jackson
Paper vs. plastic
Plain vs. peanut
Alfred E. Neuman vs. Herman Munster (Oops! Sorry, no politics!)
Silica gel vs. Powdery everfresh
Twiggy vs. James Bond
Janet Jackson's boob vs. Eminem's butt

Any others?

It's Powerdry and neo-dessicants are far superior than silica. You rookie.




Should have said rookie(s), for anytime I bring up

The Chemistry of Silica : Solubility, Polymerization, Colloid and Surface Properties and Biochemistry of Silica by the Ralph K. Iler, it gets real, real quiet in that thread.


Oh yes, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer by a mile.

I would much rather than a swift kick in the rear vrs a sharp stick in the eye. I figure the gluteus maximum is a pretty strong muscle that can take a swift kick whereas the tiniest pollen of dust causes my eye to itch and tear...


...and Silica tops all.

I don't think I've ever been on either the giving or receiving end of a kick in the rear that wasn't swift. Unless you mean that some are more swift than others. But the question shouldn't compare a swift kick in the rear against a sharp stick in the eye, I think a good-fashioned kick in the rear would be more appropriate in this situation. A good-fashioned kick in the rear is much more intense than a swift kick in the rear.

A tougher choice might be a swift kick in the eye vs-


Oh, never mind.

That's curious, I hadn't even really taken notice of an abundance of "Vs." threads @ HTF. (Must not have been paying attention. Which brings up another "Vs." thread that might be nice here -- "Mentality Ill vs. Just Plain Stupid"


Here's a few more for consideration:

> Over vs. Under (re. that paper that touches the ... er ... unmentionable body region).


> Boeing vs. Airbus.

> Eddie Haskell vs. Clarence "Lumpy" Rutherford.

> Dick York vs. Dick Sargent.

> Electric vs. Straight Razor.

> Coke vs. Pepsi.

> Grass vs. Astroturf.

> Automatic vs. Stick Shift.

> Sleep in raw vs. PJs.

> HTF vs. DVD Talk. (We know how this would come out.)

> Color vs. B&W.

> Rare vs. Well-done.

And by far the most important -- Finger vs. Any Object You Can Find That'll Do The Trick (this, of course, concerns the worldly question re. "Nose Picking"). That one, I'll admit, is a tough one to vote on.

That's all I understand, but I'm fairly certain James Bond doesn't stand a chance.

Swift kick in the rear.

I've had them before and they aren't that bad.

There's a long storied history of this type of thread here at the HTF.

Don't go rockin' the boat.

What's especially funny about that post is that Ron has apparently kept that photo on his web server since October 2000.
