Fishbone / Croissant Coin

Handy decision making aid...

Flipping a coin to decide something is an old and honored tradition, but the ever-present "Heads or Tails" just seems to need a bit of a face lift.

How about coins with a Croissant on one side, and Fishbones on the other?

Instead of "Heads or Tails", it would be "Bones or Buns".

The denomination of this coin would certainly be a half-something.

       Keep flipping... there should be equal croissants and fishbones with this one. (Unless the coin is unbalanced)

       You guessed it!

       Heads!

       I like it. My weighted coin lands buns up. :)

       Darn, it always lands on the edge, halfway between.

       Heads: I win. Tails: you lose.

       Two croissants ahead... just about what I expected so far... I'll keep flipping.

       I doubt your spouse would approve that, [LT].

       You don't think [bristolz]?
Lacus Trasumenus, Mar 16 2004
  

       Any relation?
DrCurry, Mar 17 2004
  

       About even... hmmm.
zigness, Mar 17 2004
  

       [DrCurry] no relation... I have edited my profile to clear up any confusion   

       Back on the idea, [zigness] is there any suggestion that 'bakers would use this coin to assist in voting?
Lacus Trasumenus, Mar 17 2004
  

       Well, I think some ideas deserve a coin flip as opposed to actual thought... thought takes mental energy, and there are clearly some ideas on here (perhaps even a few of my own) that just don't warrant any more actual thinking.

       [+] I like this idea. Whenever you encounter a situation where someone says "Is this a good idea?" you can just take out your Halfbakery coin and find out.

       Should be sold in sets of two: one with a croissant on both sides, the other with a fishbone on both sides. Just use the one that's appropriate to the idea in question. [+]

       // ...sets of two... //   

       How about three? Two with the same design on each side, and one 'real' one for when you actually want to make a decision.
