Pick Your Poison...

The other day I was listening to the radio and the debate was brought up about would you rather be shot, or stabbed? I'm not talking about being shot or stabbed to death. Just in general if you had to take one which would it be?

Keep in mind that I've never been shot, nor stabbed other than by maybe a fork at the dinner table, so my thought process has nothing to do with experience. But:

I gotta belive that with being shot the pain would be quick. It's a quick shot. Bang. Sure it'd hurt like crazy, but the pain would be quick, then I'd think you'd sort of be numb all over.

Stabbing seems more personal to me. It also seems like the pain would be two fold. Pain going in, then maybe a different pain when the blade comes out. I don't think the pain would be all over, maybe just in that area.  

But I gotta say, I think I'd take the Shank.

How about you. If you had to pick one which would you pick. Getting shot, or Getting stabbed?



  1. I'd run like hell. Oh, that wasn't an option. See, I spend too much time analyzing this. If it's a straight, sharp blade, the pain would actually be less, so I'd go with that. But anything jagged? Give me the bullet. Hey, wait. Can I choose a paint gun?

  2. Ooh! Good points JANM makes! Jagged.... Ouch! I pick purple. That's my answer and I'm sticking to it!

  3. Hmmm. I think I'd go with the gun. My reason? Much cooler to say "I got shot." Even if it just grazed, I think the street cred would be higher. Cuz, let's be honest, that's what matters if you aren't dead! :-)
