    If you had a chance to swallow either the blue pill and simply live your world the way you know it today (albeit knowing there's something greater you could've discovered) or swallow the red pill and discover true knowledge and 'reality'. No matter which pill you choose, there's no going back. Which would you choose?

    Half and half.

    I'd take the one that keeps you in the matrix, because soon after all that Neo comes in and saves us all anyways. That way I wouldn't have to fight them big robots. I have quite an allergy to bullets.

    Haha, I meant if you were in Neo's shoes and had no knowledge that you were 'the one'.

    I'm satisfied enough with my life not to need an escapist fantasy, so I'd take the blue pill. Besides, I'd rather greatness be earned than be something I was destined for.

    I shoot up on both and see if my head exploded.

    I'd take the red one, cos I have better fashion sense than anyone in the movie and I would Bruce Lee the hell out of those squid bastards!

    Does it matter? Neo was always destined to take the red pill. Choice was simply an illusion.

    Why doesn't anyone want to take both?

    Perhaps crush them in each hand and lick your palms?

    Or maybe smash them together into a purple splotch?

    What happens then? :rolleyes:

    Neither. I'm more of a ganja sort of girl. Besides, it looked like they had really lousy munchies in the real world.

    Red pill. I'd rather live a real life rather than a shame life. Having a crappy shame life (living paycheck to paycheck, economy going down the crapper, government growing more intrusive) makes the choice even easier.:eek: I'll miss my kids though, even though they're bits and bytes of computer data.:p
