    How do you do it :)

    RA just suggested that this "bit of useless information" might make an off topic poll. Not having created a poll before I just thought I would try it and see.

    I succeeded in making the poll but as for an answer :confused:

    Well I am one of only two that picked War.

    The other three are things are natural, innate to humanity and can even be wonderful. I know that initially Death seems to be ugly. But it is a moment in the natural cycle of life. In nature, death is sometimes needed for the growth of new an awe inspiring life. If anyone has ever had a loved one suffer extrodenary pain from a debilitating disorder, death can even be a much desired relief (I guess it is not hard to guess where I stand on PAS - physician assisted suicide-). And for those with strong beliefs in an afterlife, death is simply the last moment before the "better place."

    War is not nautral or should be a part of civilized society. If I may, War ... what is it good for? ;)

    One of three now. My reasoning fell along your lines of thought.

    After deliberations I voted for war. I tried looking at it to see whether there was one of the four that did not link with any of the the others but in the end my choice reflects something that damages the world, is an awful trait of mankind and perhaps has the greatest impact on the biggest number of people.

    I voted for wisdom, it being least likely to kill you (poetry can bore you to death...). I admit it -- I'm a Philistine.

    Simple: war. The others each have two vowels to war's one.

    By that argument, you could say that war requires the least movement of the tongue to pronounce <Nine can almost hear people muttering inanely at their monitors right now to test this> :)
