    It's really hard to choose one or the other.

    I don't want to know everything, just a little bit about everything.

    SO I will take the option of knowing a little about alot

    I want to know it all...better said I gotta know it all, so neither of these choices suit me

    Wonderful brain teaser. To be Jack of all trades or an expert on one topic? I'd choose sides with Zsuzsy Bee and be a master of it all.
    To be or not to be?

    Umm, don't see any question here. Most of us (if not all) know a lot about one or few narrow topics. At the same time we do know a bit of everything. So this looks to me exactly as a compelling case of having your cake and eating it too smile

    Here's an example
    NUDE : this Croatian word means offer.

    MOST  : this Russian word means bridge.

    Flickor  : this Swedish word means girls.

    GIFT     : this German word means poison.

    ECLAIR   : this French word means lightening.

    DOVE     : this Italian word means where.

    What's the point?

    Ya'll are trying to get outta answering the question smile Well most of you anyway. I think I would have to choose a little about a lot. Because knowing some things help you in other areas as well. And I have a dream of going on Jeopardy one day... even though they already shot me down once sad

    A little about a lot.  I think that's the more practical choice, because knowing a lot about a little means not knowing nearly enough about any number of things - which isn't a good way to live a life.

    For me, I tend to have inclination towards a little about a lot. However, as I have completed a phd I know that I am more than capable of knowing lots about one tiny subject area.

    everything about life.

    It's a would you rather question... so if you had to pick one or the other. I realize that most people know much about a few topics and a little about many. I know a lot about science, health, and medicine, and a little about music, pop culture, cooking, and a few other things.
