March Madness is one of the best times of the year, and the annual bracket usually does a good job of determining the best team in the country. So, can't other major decisions be made using March Madness brackets? Of course they can. Here are 15 things that should also be decided with brackets.
When you have plenty of things to do, it's not always the easiest thing in the world to decide what to do first. Take all of your priorities and put it onto a bracket. Whichever task comes out on top is the one you do first, and then you work your way down the line.
When young children don't have any major motivation to be a fan of a particular sports team, why not help them out with a sports-related bracket? It's safe to say the kid's parents would probably act as the selection committee for that bracket.
Who knows, maybe Mother Nature already uses a March Madness bracket to determine the weather? Unfortunately, it was winter that was cutting down the nets this year and one can only hope that summer makes a deep tournament run in 2015.
This would essentially be the same thing as March Madness, but would involve ultimate fighting. Imagine how entertaining that would be. Some of the biggest physical specimens in all the world would be going at it against each other, and it would be wildly entertaining.
When you're sitting at home hungry, it can be hard to decide exactly what you're in the mood to eat. Should you get Chinese food or pizza? Worry no more. Just make a bracket with all of the different foods you like and flip a coin for every matchup.
This would certainly prevent tanking. Take the eight or 16 worst teams in each sport and have them play a postseason tournament for the No. 1 overall pick. Just imagine how intense these games would get with such important draft picks on the line.
Often, when there is a job opening, there are several worthy applicants and it's really hard for employers to pick the perfect person for the job. By setting up a March Madness bracket and giving each candidate different competitive tasks, they could find the best man for the job.
One of the hardest decisions you can make in your life (other than what job to pursue and who to marry, of course) is what you will name your fantasy team from year to year. There are so many good choices out there, but you have to narrow it down somehow. Pick some of the best team names and use the bracket to get your team name.
Undecided is the most popular college major when people enter post-secondary school, but that doesn't have to be the case. If high school seniors made a bracket with college majors and used it to determine their future, they would have a much easier decision when they have to declare their major at college.
If you're lucky enough to have time for a vacation, your destination is a very important choice. There are plenty of warm places you can go, but some are sure to give you more enjoyment than others. Take your favorite destinations and put it on a bracket and all your problems are solved.
Using the March Madness bracket can make life so much easier. Whenever you have a big, grown-up decision to make, just have a bracket make it for you. Evaluate all your options, smack them on a bracket and see what happens.
Essentially, this is what 'The Bachelor' and 'The Bachelorette' does, and in real life, it could work as well. If you're trying to make the big decision of who to ask out on that big date, toss the candidates on a bracket. May the best person win.
God forbid the world enters a third world war, but if it did, it could be decided by a March Madness bracket. Selection Sunday would be pretty tense for this particular arrangement.
It seems like moms and dads can never decide on a baby name while the mom is pregnant, but now they have a way to do it. Put the many names that come up on a bracket and find a way to determine the winners. What a story to tell your kid about how they got their name.
Think about how crazy the campaigning would get for a presidential election bracket. Each winner of the primaries would get a No. 1 seed in their region. As if the presidential election wasn't crazy enough, this bracket-style election would take it to a whole other level.
