Would you rather fight one segway-sized duck or 1000 duck-sized segways? Assume that the segways can move and navigate on their own like an autonomous robot.

I would rather fight 1000 duck-sized segways because I could probably stomp or kick one, then outrun the rest. Then when they caught up to me I could kick another one, and keep running, much like hellions can micro against zerglings. Plus, the segways would have a hard time climbing up steps.

1000 duck-sized segways. Because it'd be a cute death.

I regret my cowardly choice. A segway sized duck would be a glorious opponent to meet in the field of battle.

Just Here For The Pie

I hate grinding. I would go for the big kill and take duckzilla down.

I know a good taxidermist too.



None.

One segway-sized duck so I can claim its head as a trophy and because duck-sized segways no longer give me exp.

One segway sized duck, otherwise you run the risk of the segways out-microing you

Definitely 1000 duck-sized segways. Big birds are frikkin' scary. Have you seem emus or ostrichs up close? What about cassowarys?

Segways suffer the same flaw as darleks: can't move up stairs. Also segways don't float whereas ducks do, so a swimming pool wouldn't save you from the duck.



None.

We live in a society.

Why not allow the best of both worlds? 1000 Segway-sized ducks. Go big or go home.

Square-cube law. The segway-sized duck would be unable to stand. Easy prey.

When I read the poll, I assumed a "segway" was some kind of bus or something, and that a segway-sized duck would just collapse on itself due to a blood circulation and/or respiratory and/or skeletal failure, and die in a matter of minutes to hours on its own anyways.
Then I looked up segways in google image search.
:(
Depending on how you measure "size" of a segway and "size" of a duck, wouldn't a "segway sized duck" just be equivalent to a particularly large goose?



None.

Emus are about the size of a segway.

We can't explain the universe, just describe it; and we don't know whether our theories are true, we just know they're not wrong. >Harald Lesch

Emus are Not ducks.

The point is that a duck the size of a segway would still be able to stand, and be quite dangerous.

I don't know enough about anatomy to confirm it either way, but I do know that emus are built to support high weight while ducks are not. It's anyone's guess if segway size would make a duck's build unstable.

Really it depends what we mean by "segway size", because obviously segways are narrow and tall while ducks are the opposite, squat and wide. If you increase the width of a duck until it matches the width of a segway, then I guess it'd probably end up about swan-sized. If you kept the normal duck proportions but made it as tall as a segway, then you'd end up with a bird bigger than any other living birds, and likely it wouldn't be able to walk at all.

Really it depends what "segway sized duck" means.

Segway sized duck. BECAUSE I WOULD CONQUER IT AND CLAIM IT AS A MOUNT AND RIDE IT INTO MORE GLORIOUS BATTLE



None.
