'Or' Meme

I started writing some 'either/or' questions. You can be memed if you want. The gist of it is you have to pick one without giving any explanation, quickly; like you're going to a desert island and you have to pick one. Picking one over the other doesn't mean you hate the other or that you like both, nor does picking one state what you're present situation in life is; that's not the gist. You just have to pick one over the other(s) - that's it. Though I cheated on my own meme and sometimes said, 'both' or 'neither' or simply gave different answers altogether, which you're free to do, it is recommended that you choose one or the other.

You can add some of your own too if you wish, but none can be removed.

Hey, some nice answers.

The New Catholic Literary Revival is the - hopefully - present and coming spring of the Catholic novel and poetry and the like, like what happened starting in the time a bit before Chesterton and on into the time of Tolkien and Lewis. T.O.B. Time Bomb refers to The Theology of the Body as foreseen by one writer as a 'timebomb' waiting to go off in the near future; an enlightenment about our true and whole selves and our sexuality.

I am against neither of course, and believe in both and hope both are presently fruiting; but I generally detest the self-awareness of it all.

Vizzini or Inigo or Fezzik: what, no Princess Bride?

Robert Stack and Bob Saget: 80's television.

Now, you tell me, what is Top Cat and what is Doctor Dibble. I'm guessing this is U.K. television?
