    Or are they? Given a choice (mandated), as to having two heads or three, which would you choose - after all two's company but three's a crowd!

    Any preferences, and reasons as to why?

    (Hopefully not laughing at any who do find themselves in such a position) :oops:

    You been fishing off windscale? I hear two headed fish are 10 a penny around there.

    I have trouble agreeing with myself in just one head, imagine the confusion with 2 or 3

    Choose three... that way you hear both sides of a position before you make yours.

    Two, to minimise the procrastination. Although, on the other hand...

    I think I would opt for two - one checking the other - but it might be difficult to know which was which. :oops: But three is just a nightmare - with two ganging up on the other, and which might vary. Might apply to minds just as much as well. o_O

    Oh, I don’t know. I’m of two minds on this decision.

    I think, I would prefer 3 heads, because then you could always vote :D

    But two's a battle and three's a democracy.

    An odd number of heads makes decisions and resolves disputes. An even number of heads cannot resolve disputes. Majority rules.

    An odd number of heads still works best.

    As others already said, you need an odd number to prevent a stalemate. From the triumvirate of the Roman empire to judges today, odd numbers have always worked best to make decisions.
    (And seemingly having only two choices is called a false dilemma.)

    You mean like with the parties in the US: eight years of dems, eight years of pubs?

    Hopefully the two heads would have some common aims, unlike these. :oops:

    That's exactly what I called the false dilemma. It looks like a difference when you only have two options. In reality they both want the same thing: betraying their constituency while pleasing their donors.
