Brickset Bonfire Night Bonus Ball Bonanza - UK Lottery Draw 5th November 2016

To give @bendybadger some more time off, and also with a wonderful bunch of polybags donated by @SumoLego for quite a few forthcoming prize draws, here we go again for the next one.

If any new people have recently joined and wonder what this is, it's simple. Answer a stupid question, and get a number based on your post in order between 1 and 59 for the UK national lottery bonus ball.  If your number gets drawn on Saturday night you win the prize.  If you don't make the first 59 replies, well there's always next week to be a little quicker.

So, this week, courtesy of @SumoLego donations you'll be playing for a #5002145 Rocket Racoon. A very nice polybag I think you'll agree - though it will be amusing if he wins it back ;-)

This week's question is all about choices. What choice would put you in a real quandry? What would be difficult for you to decide if you really had to?

Your reply can be funny, a real story of a choice you had to make, hypothetical or whatever. Just post it and get yourself a number. Try and be a bit more creative than "Sandcrawler or Ewok Village" though ;-)

For me, the question would be "Chocolate or cheese?" If I was told I could only eat one of these for the rest of my life and not the other, that would be a real toughie.

    Faster, better, cheaper.  When building spacecraft, you want all three, but can usually only choose two.

    Wow, @Prince Draven and I have the same response....Family or money
    I left my position of 21 years, to be able to spend time with my family.  I know I won't find the same pay, but the time spent with loved ones is a far greater treasure.

    Live close(ish) to work or spend 3x less on housing but longer commute.

    Have prioritized living close(ish) to work for the past 10 years, as my time is valuable too.

    (And it's not the first time I don't know what to choose either and unlikely to be the last, at least a few more days like that between now and Christmas I expect.)

    Both have an appropriate place in the world of peanut butter!

    Today was the Cubs parade and rally. I thought about calling in sick to go to Wrigley but was responsible and now at work.
    I hope it won't be another 108 years before another World Series win.

    My next holiday has got me stumped at the moment. Central Asia next year, or save up for a few months in Japan for the Olympics..?

    or take the third option: don't go on holiday at all and spend all the money on Lego instead!
  • GallardoLUGallardoLU USAMember Posts: 644
    should I sell a valuable set I've had for a very long time (to pay for car repairs), or start riding my bike to work instead of fixing the car....
  • msandersmsanders Member Posts: 1,017
    Recently for me it was UK vs Switzerland. Got a great job offer in Switzerland which was also great for our family. However, away from friends and the relatives in the UK. Happy we chose Switzerland but we do miss the UK. We'll have one new addition to our Swiss Sanders family in April so it's definitely been great!

    Guiness or Unibroue Maudite. I don't know if I could give either of those up.

    Who do I greet first when I come home from work? My dogs who always happy to see me or my wife. Who I could have inadvertently upset for some reason while I was away.
