It's So Simple: Gandalf's Problem Solving Flowchart

January 18, 2013


Because it's Friday and the internet is drying up drier than the furball I found behind the couch when I was vacuuming (plus it was like, glued to the carpet and I had to loosen it with a bare toe -- thanks for that, Shitty Bill!), here's Gandalf's problem solving flowchart. Sadly, there was no mention of a crystal ball or eeny-meeny-miny-moe. Step aside Gandy, here's a real professional solves problems:

1. Can I just pretend this problem doesn't exist?
2. If not, will I die?
3. Avoid at all costs, even if it means certain death.

Thanks to Ford, who agrees Gandalf's flowchart should have definitely included a "pack a pipe and smoke it" step in there somewhere.

  • Someone put together a diagram of gollum's decision making tree. Here's a simple flow charting tool. Sorry, Smeagol

    Don't call him Shitty Bill, though.

    Holy shit! GW vacuums?

    HOLY SHIT! GW vacumes?

    Can't help but notice that "Run" is a solution that is missing from this chart.

    I guess it may be applicable from between any option to another arbitrarily =P
