Choice

Saw a post on the

that harked back to the good old days when ‘we hadn’t much choice what we wore’.

Generally more choice is a good thing (welcome to discuss, no problem with chatting here) but there are definitely times I go shopping I feel a bit overwhelmed. What do you think there is too much or too little choice of? Here’s a few to start.

Most food-crop-based questions here should be answered with ‘too little’ as there are tonnes of excellent varieties of, say, apples that have been dumped in favour of monocropping by Big Ag. There used to be more apple varieties commonly grown in England alone than there were cities.

(By the way, did you know an apple pip will NEVER grow into the same variety of tree as its parent apple?)

You’re probably right. I just never have much too much of a preference (probably due to the lack of choice). If I want sharp I’ll go green, red if I want something sweeter. Still tastes like apple.

People voting there is already too much choice in Milkshake flavours, I hope it’s not because you simply hate milkshakes and even one choice is too much?

Also please feel free to do your own polls, I kinda want to play a bit of playstation

I think this might be too complicated to answer in a 3-way poll. All of the above
