If you could have a device that allowed you to not be presented with hypothetical questions, would you get it?

Asked by CyanoticWasp (20007 points ) October 18th, 2010

I’d get two, just in case something happened to the first one.

I’m just sayin’.

Oh, and let’s say it only came in black or white. Which one would you get?

Too bad there’s no device to allow us to avoid false dichotomies.

No. I ask a lot of hypothetical questions. But I would like a device that allowed me not to be presented with hypocrisy

Seaofclouds's avatar

Nope. I like hypothetical questions because a lot of the time they are pretty thought provoking.

Nah! Those that make me think aren’t so bad. It’s the people who ask a hypothetical question and get annoyed when you don’t agree with their take on the situation that annoy me.

@lloydbird I have one too! And I’m about to use mine as we…

I think not answering this question is the only way to express my answer.

I think I’ve totally missed the plot with this question and I have no idea how to answer it :-/

What if that device didn’t just allow you to not be faced with hypothetical questions actually sucked up those who ask the questions and sent them to a box-shaped universe far from earth? What if I asked a hypothetical question, like this one, and the device actually existed? What if I were sucked away into that universe?

But what—get this, guys—what if I think outside the box??????

You mean hypothetically speaking, of course…

Could we just assume that it also comes in beige?
it goes with everything,you know… ;)

iamthemob's avatar

@lucillelucillelucille – hypothetically, sure you can

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@iamthemob Anything’s possible in the Magical Kingdom of Hypotheses! :)

wundayatta's avatar

Anything is possible anywhere, @lucillelucillelucille, but most of it is highly unlikely. In the kingdom of hypotheses, though, at least as experienced on fluther, there are far too many hypotheses that are inane, poorly thought out or both.

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@wundayatta Agreed….but that doesn’t mean one can’t love them like a pair of plaid pleather pants.XD

Tell me where to order it. PLEASE!

Trillian's avatar

Dear god, please. I’ll have two also. Too. As well.
One of each color so no one draws erronious conclusions from a completely innocent choice. ;-)
(Can I set it to block things like “bff”?)

Austinlad's avatar

@Trillian, on this matter you’ve won my heart!

wundayatta's avatar

@lucillelucillelucille Oh please don’t tell me you wear plaid pleather pants (whatever they are), or have aspirations of owning such. No, no, no. I don’t know if I could look at your avatar ever again without having a vision that might cause me to gag, choke and…. well, what if you did?

seazen's avatar

Then I wouldn’t have this one in my inbox, right?

ETpro's avatar

Since there is no such device, isn’t this a hypothetical question?

janbb's avatar

@ETpro Well, yeah – isn’t irony a beautiful thing?

xxii's avatar

No! I like hypothetical questions.

CyanoticWasp's avatar

@xxii okay, but… what if you didn’t?

Trillian's avatar

@Austinlad Cool…. what else do I get?

SavoirFaire's avatar

Is there a question here? Something seems to be preventing me from reading it. I’m just getting a blank page.
