The Something Awful forums are known for taking on the weighty issues - things like "Is there a God?" "Why is there suffering?", and "Doritos??" Today we see the results of two more of these big questions: "What items would you sell if you travelled to the ancient past and opened a corner shoppe?" and "How would you convince people to do drugs you're selling in the Middle Ages?" The answers to these questions may surprise you! Entrepreneurs, take note!
