    I wouldn't want to bring about either of these worlds.

    Leave them alone.

    Perfect world would be shit just like Hell. There is no good without bad. And there is no bad without good. To appreciate either you need both in the same plane.

    I would burn both boxes, whilst I cursed the gods for this false exercise.

    If that's not possible: leave them alone.
    LOL! What does an x-ray of power look like?

    This will not end well...
    But it will at least be poetic, I suppose...

    Hmm... But what if it does end well?
    Then I suppose it will be a different sort of poetry, a preferable sort...
    A sort I could become accustomed to...

    Yeah, I just wrote a post about how terribad I feel if a restaurant I choose happens to disappoint, so I voted to leave both.
    But I like the idea of destroying the key. Might have to take it to Mt. Doom or something, but I am up for an adventure.

    I'd burn them all

    This kinda reminds me of the boxes episode in Futurama. x)

    No it wouldn't. Why do you think it would be Hell?

    There is no good without bad. And there is no bad without good. To appreciate either you need both in the same plane.
    I actually find this paragraph somewhat revolting. To say that good cannot be appreciated without bad, seems to me, to defeat the purpose of good in the first place because bad somehow becomes a required thing that cannot be overcome.

    I doubt you would be glorifying bad if you had been raised in some situation that, we all could agree, was horrifying.

    This is religious-defeatist-privileged, nonsense.

    ….Gee, tell us how you really feel Magnificent Mind? Why you holdin back... HaHaa

    Damn….. I think I’d have to leave them alone too…. Tough odds for something this big… I just tested it real quick by flipping a coin three times in a row.. and I was wrong three times in a row damnit..

    Hmmm.. Do you think a perfect world would work though?… Remember what happened when the robots tried that in The Matrix..
