10 Weird Things People Would Rather Do Over Other Weird Things

Every day as soon as you open your eyes, you are faced with choices. They can include what to wear today, where to go in the evening, whom to meet, and a lot of other things.

And sometimes, you think about weird stuff too such as whether you would prefer breaking your leg or your dominant hand or whether you would rather be invisible or be able to read minds. 

So, we have decided to dive deep into the fun and weird stuff and see how people voted on specific questions. You can find these questions under the “Would you rather” space on TruePublic. It’s going to be fun. And before you check out the space, make sure to read the stats below: 

N1: No internet vs. no showers for a year 

77% of the respondents said they would rather be with no internet than no showers for a year. 

Note that over 11K people answered this question, and while both men and women would mostly opt for not having internet for a year than not having showers, still 30% of men voted for “No showers for a year” as opposed to 19% of women. Does this mean that men have greater internet dependency or they just don’t like to shower so much?
