Sadly, I would chose pokemon never existing, I have too much moral fiber, and I'll fill the void with my sister's wierd shoujo manga or somethin'. Or maybe just watch Tsubasa chronicles again, even though the OVA makes me depressed, in the romanticly sad way. xD
Would you wrather. . . have to live with a 1000 pound person of the opposite gender of you for the rest of your life as your spouse, or eat a whole entire buffet worth of tree worms?
