The Debate Is Officially Over:
This revelation came to me today as I was sitting eating my lunch. Generic fast-food place, you know. I had debated with myself whether to get onion rings or french fries, and decided on the fries simply because I had eaten the onion rings last time.
As I worked my way through the meal, I realized that the fries were not nearly as satisfying as onion rings. In fact, they were downright disappointing. I added more ketchup, and tried to be satisfied. Even though the ketchup helped, it revealed a fatal flaw in the design of french fries. They are an empty vessel; a blank sheet. By themselves, they are nothing. They rely on toppings and condiments for the full french fry experience. Onion rings, on the other hand, reqiure nothing. In fact, they rebel against any help that toppings might give them (they taste rather nasty with ketchup). This is clear proof that indeed, onion rings are better than french fries.
That's all for now; I had a bunch of other stuff I was going to write, but I'll save it for later.
