Where Pink Flamingos Grow

Why, hello there! Nice to see you here on this Choose and Defend Wednesday post. This week's choice involves a heist. I will leave the exact goal of the heist and all the planning and such completely up to you. If you have a heist in mind, that isn't too top secret, I'd love to hear the details. But what I must know...what all of us here must know is...

Will you execute your heist...

Solo
OR

With a Team

As you've probably already gathered there are fairly definite pros and cons to each scenario. But what will you Choose? And how will you Defend that choice?  Choose and Defend!

I like doing things with friends, whether it's going out to dinner, catching a movie, or turning over a bank. It helps to have friends around when things start going wrong. By the way, what's everyone doing this weekend? I have a plan. WITH A TEAM, final answer.

Solo, assuming I can carry enough to make it worthwhile. There's always one or two people supporting the actual robbers that expect to get some. Slackers... Anybody can sit in a van and push buttons.

I'm going solo, because I think I can pull off that bald guy look better than the Brad or George In A Suit look.

Also, my brain would never stop chattering if I was in a crew that pulled off a heist. Who's going to rat me out? Who's going to kill me so that I don't rat them out? Why do I have to be Mr. Pink?

It would have to be a team effort, despite increasing the risk variables, I'm taking a risk anyway so why not make the rewards greater by employing experts in their field?

Assuming that it was a heist I actually believed I could pull off, I think I'd go solo. That way, there's no one to change his or her mind and then rat me out. And no one to know I've just done something unethical.

Jasen: When you say "I have a plan" the gang is listening :) One for Team Heist.

3GK: Right? What did they do to deserve a cut?!?! One for Solo Heist.

FW: Very good point...bring in the experts! Two for Team Heist.

Secret: Another good point. With each person who has info, your risk of a leak increases exponentially. Two for Solo Heist.

Everyone: You all got right on the pros and cons of this question. The vote now stands at 2-2. Tie breaker?

Team! There's bound to be stuff I haven't thought of or am not good enough at!

NoRegrets: Delegation! And thanks for tie-breaking. Three for Team Heist.

Now 2-3, with Solo Heist trailing Team Heist by a narrow margin :)
