i sing the oatmeal electric

OK. You're flying in a plane which is about to crash into the infinant abyss that is the pacific ocean. As you prepare to dive from the aircraft in an effort to survive via parachute, the stewardess (that's right, i said it... well, i'm sorry, she's not a "uniformed flight member", she's an f-ing stewardess) is passing out one bag of cookies per passenger. You have a choice between oatmeal rasin and chocolate chip. You arrive at the hatch to jettison yourself and notice that your landing target is a small desert island. The stewardess presents two small bags to you and you must now choose...

If you answered chocolate chip, you are incorrect.

I've concluded, and please comment that i am on crack if you believe it to be so, that smart people enjoy, nay, respect oatmeal more than usual.

Oatmeal is not just a food... i think its a way of life.

UPDATE: I've been informed that more geniuses eat macadamia nut cookies than any other type of cookie. I'm not sure about the accuracy of this statistic. I suppose one could also argue that the combination of chocolate and peanut butter is "pure genius". Fortune cookies are also a favorite of minimalists and lovers of elegance such as myself. Alas, none of these tantilizing options are available in my scenario.

It's not a matter of smart people respecting oatmeal more...I for one will choose choco-chip 99% of the time. In your scenario, oatmeal is a logical choice because:

1) it's more filling
2) chocolate makes you thirsty
