Would you rather be a big fish in a small pond, or an average fish in a big pond?
Big fish in a big pond.
Either way I’m gonna die, so I rather be a big fish in a small pond.
I’ve been both in my short life. I like being a little fish in a big, quiet pond :)
Be the King of a small kingdom or be the peasant of a larger one.
What are you even all talking about? This is clearly about ichthyology. It is more advantageous to be a larger fish in a smaller pond because your chances of survival are much higher. Being an average sized fish sure has its advantages but you still risk predation, although there are group methods that can reduce this, but it also depends on what type of fish we are talking about. This question is a very poorly phrased ichthyologist question.
Be the best student at NC State or average student at Duke. That is the question.
Or you could be a Duke Lacrosse player and see what happens when the little fish in the big pond turn into a mob led by morons.
I am retired and well past my "Big Fish" days.

I would be fine either way & I see the benefits of both.
Enough with these silly questions!
At the end of the day, the only question you, as a creature of God, should be asking yourself is whether you are a sheep (i.e. one of God’s Elect) or a goat (i.e. a sinner bound for ETERNAL DESTRUCTION in the Lake of Fire). Read Matthew 25:31–46 for more details.
Let’s make this crystal clear: if you obey God and keep His commandments, then you are a sheep and you have a spot waiting for you in the Kingdom of Heaven. If you DON’T obey the commandments of the Lord your God, which can be found in the Bible, then you are a goat and your future holds nothing but agonies and well-deserved tortures at the hand of Satan.
Are you scared yet? You SHOULD be!
“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” (Matthew 10:28).
FEAR GOD. Amen.
So... you wanna be an average fish?
No my dear, I want to be a SHEEP, a humble servant of God, a good fig and not a naughty fig. There are so many metaphors I could use but it boils down to this: I want to sit on the right hand of Jesus Christ, who sits on His Eternal Throne in the Kingdom of Heaven, when I give up the ghost.
In this scenario I am a sheep. In the SoH hypothetical poll, I am an average fish in a large pond.
Let’s play ‘whose alt is this’?
Maybe ptellini ?
Nah it’d be someone who is the polar opposite of this normally, the purpose is to make fun of the other side
It’s not me #mindgames. 😳
Also I’d rather be an average fish. I don’t care for the big fish life.
I was thinking thatguy2, or libartie
It will be interesting to see if it is a “sincere” account.
I need more space. Couldn’t care less about the relative size of my neighbors.
The big fish in a small pond, calls the shots.
I’m in no way a control freak, but when I call the shots, life runs very smoothly.
I will grow the pond!
Make the pond great again! We need to build a dam 🐟
I can’t expand the pond with a dam around it. Once the pond is “yuge”, we’ll build a dam.
Dams are useless in ponds.
coco, we’re both aware of that.
I've never been an average fish. With big ponds, there's much more to be gained both personally and professionally...I'd welcome the chance to start in the middle and see where it goes from there. That's why I'm making 6-figures now...I gave up my cushy job near the top of a medium-sized nonUnion trucking company to see what I could do at a large Teamsters one.
I AM "an average fish in a big pond"! I always thought it’d be cool to have gills!😃
Big fish always believe they are big till a bigger one comes along :-) ......small fish are always content with life as a community. Call it snowflake have you. But Id rather be happy with love and joy in my life. Lol
I am an average fish in a big pond, and I'm okay with that.
Im never going to be average.
Big ponds are much more interesting.
I think the opposite...
Much rather be a regular fish in a huge pond.
I’ve been both. Trouble w the small pond is there’s never anything new there. Big pond much better. More to do, less responsibility.
Same situation here (have been in both ponds.) However, I prefer the small pond - much more flexibility and ingenuity going on out of necessity.
We are too deep in this metaphor
Anything to get out of the small pond
