Catnip because it's an actual thing.

Snakes or lizards?

I think I prefer lizards

Be cursed with having a dead pixel on any screen / monitor you ever use again (even when it technically should not be able to have one) or a crack on any bit of crockery / glassware you ever use again

Dead pixel. As long as it's on a big enough monitor I'll hardly notice it, whereas crockery cracks are risky.


Whittle mallards with the Dark Secret, or do SCIENCE with Professor McBlusterFluff's Highly Trained Titmouse?

They both sound pretty nice, but I feel starved of fun so I will choose SCIENCE with Professor McBlusterFluff's Highly Trained Titmouse

Raisins or sultanas?

Sultanas. No raisin ever successfully ran the Maldives.

Joy or happiness?

Happiness, since it strikes me as being a state of being that might stick around a bit longer than a joyful peak. Especially if I'm picking this to be my permanent state from now on. You can't go around feeling joyful all the time can you? You'd go mad wouldn't you? Or drive others mad....

Yep, happiness.

Narnia is real or the wizarding world from Harry Potter is real?

Ooh, that's actually really difficult, both being interesting but also icnredibly flawed additional-world constructions. I think it depends on the question of whether just Narnia is real, or whether the full cosmology around Narnia is real. If the latter, I arguably shouldn't want Narnia to be real because in the wider Narnian cosmology, atheists are inherently unicorn murdering mouldy turnip eaters who are condemned eternally to that state after death which doesn't sound ideal. If the former, Narnia is the obvious choice, because Narnians generally don't come over and murder us over here (whereas dark wizards absolutely 100% do murder muggles).

I'll opt for Narnia being real, I think. I actually do like Narnia more as a setting.

Guaranteed good sleep, absolutely - in fact I'd probably trade rather more for it given the chance.

π (pi = 3.14159...) or e (Euler's / exponential constant = 2.71828...)?

I always wondered what was out west of the map, and what everyday history in Narnia looks like.  When there were feasts and tournaments at Cair Paravel, what did that look like?

The Wizarding World is odd because JKR can see so much about her Britain, but her stories don't ask whether those things should be changed, they take a more pessimistic view that as it was, so shall it ever be (with some fiddling at the edges like liberating a house elf or creating scholarships for poor students).  Her rigid, incompetent bureaucrats promoted by the Old Boys' Network look very timely.  I hear that the new films play up the imperialism and apartheid which are implicit in the setting, and someone I respect does not think they ask the right questions (JKR's's wizards don't think erasing a Muggle's memory or keeping magical healing for themselves is a big deal, but JKR is pretty clear that slavery is bad and tossing muggles around the sky for fun or murdering them to practice your curses is bad).

Mod note: The above discussion is now continued at https://exilian.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=6213

e because I can replace π by using tau.

Hairbrush or comb?

Sundried tomatoes, as I'm growing a good variety for that. Though I won't actually get enough sunlight to do it, alas.

Divans or four poster beds?

Wheat, because if it's not milled I get the bran with it.

Paris or Berlin?
