Asking friends for guidance on crucial decisions can lead to disaster, either because your friends aren't particularly good with advice, or because they find the prospect of you failing hilarious. If you can't trust your friends, trust beer instead: Beck's Universe of Choice.
From the brew that's been satisfying the good people of Bremen, Germany, since 1873, the Universe of Choice is an online compendium of hundreds of tricky situations, with the correct path determined by a poll of thousands of Beck's drinkers. Obviously, many scenarios deal with more intimate matters, from deciding whether to cover for your boss or tell his hot wife he's cheating, or whether to go with Al Green or Dave Matthews when attempting to close the deal (winner = Al Green, but if you say "Crash Into Me" still works for you...you're clearly a liar). Other situations from the broad-based list involve career moves (get a job, or continue your education?), breaking office policy (should I sell schwag I don't want on eBay?), becoming an adult (get a dog, or admit your irresponsibleness will cause it to starve) and, most difficult of all, mashed potatoes (lumpy or smooth?).
