    You are at a party.

    Do you go for the chips or the pretzels?

    Depends on the chips, the pretzels, my mood, the phase of the moon...

    If given a choice between them, as in this poll, I choose the chips - though its doubtful you'll ever find me at a party.

    How about neither. I'd rather go for a different selection or nothing at all.

    I can't answer without knowing what drinks are being served.

    Also, tortilla chips or potato chips?

    And what kind of dips or accompaniments?

    I'm overanalyzing this, aren't I?

    I'll go stand in the corner now.

    Chips. Only if there are sea salt pita chips.

    Neither. I'd be drinking!

    Also it's crisps not chips!

    In general, I would find myself in a pretty similar position.

    A proper analysis of the variables.

    Excellent. Now, this, too, would influence my choice, quite considerably. The study of the quality of dips is an under-researched field of enquiry, to my mind. Much time at parties has been expended on seeking empirical, objective evidence in order to draw a satisfactory conclusion to this pressing question.

    As would I.

    Ah, and 'crisps' it is, how right you are. Crisps to those of us who dwell Across the Pond….

    Maybe it _is_ chips! If so, that’s where I’m hanging out, you know, if they’re freshly cooked :D

    The lesser of the two evils (except for sodium):

    "Pretzels offer a nutritional advantage when it comes to fat content. Each serving of potato chips contains 21 grams of fat, including 2.3 grams of saturated fat, while a serving of pretzels has just 2 grams of fat and less than half a gram of saturated fat. Limiting your saturated fat intake helps fight cardiovascular disease and helps keep your blood cholesterol levels at a safe level."

    I'd skip both and look for the shrimp instead.

    If I have the choice, I choose both chips (crisps :D ) _and_ pretzels. Hate to leave anything to chance, here. What if I take the crisps first - and the pretzels are already gone when I come back for those?

    Hahaha, nice edit reason :D (that first attempt was a “no linker”)


    You’ll have to take that up with this fellow:
