Would You Rather: 90s Edition

As children, we were constantly yearning for independence from our parents. Sure, they fed us, clothed us, and put a roof over our head, but what did they really ever do for us? Movies featuring kids on their own became a sort of illicit fantasy of autonomy, a state of unlikely non-supervision to which we could eventually aspire.

So, the question is,


Would you rather:


Experience the zany madcap robber-evading adventures of Kevin McCallister in Home Alone


or

Enjoy weeks of non-stop childlike debauchery in a remote setting while assembling an elaborate parent-fooling scheme a la Camp Nowhere?


Explain your reasoning.

I loved Camp Nowhere!
I think I'd prefer the Home Alone fiascos...I'm pretty independent, but I'm not really over the top or one to go against authority like the kids in CN.
Plus, I prefer Christmas to getting all bug-bitten in the woods any day!

I'd have to go with Camp Nowhere..I don't think I would be creative enough to pull off those stunts by myself but deceiving my parents...pie!

I would have to go with home alone, just because it would be fun coming up with new ideas to stop the robbers.

I always wanted to be home alone! Probably just so I could watch all the tv shows I wasn't allowed to watch normally.
