Would you rather have a sonic screwdriver or magic wand? | The Tylt

Would you rather have a sonic screwdriver or magic wand?

Whovians and Potterheads, go to your corners. The fight is on. On one side, you have the Doctor, the hero of time and space armed with a whizzing gadget (it might go ding when there's stuff) that opens pretty much anything, controls alien devices and provides some sort of never-disclosed data. On the other hand, you've got the wizarding world with phoenix-feather cores, the ability to light a room or transfigure a teacup, as well as several very dark uses, such as torture and attempted baby-murder. Which do you choose?

The Doctor can go anywhere in time and space and the only tools she has are the mind of a Time Lord and a sonic screwdriver. Its capabilities have never been completely explained, which is another way of saying it can do anything. It can stop robots, reverse the polarity of a neutron flow, or something, and would probably be really handy during a trip to IKEA. 

Wands are cool too, but then you'd have to live in a reality that includes Dolores Umbridge. Screw that.

Is there any possibility that a sonic screwdriver could exist? (Spoiler alert: not really but it's cool anyhow).

Admit it: you're still waiting for your Hogwarts letter. It's okay. Maybe they'll open an adult school.

What Potterhead hasn't dreamed of walking into Ollivander's equally fascinating and disturbing wand shop and having some mystical wizardly accoutrement choose them? You can do everything from augment memories to unlock secret chambers with a wand. 

Plus, you get to use spells, and that's much cooler than a screwdriver from space buzzing like something better kept in your underwear drawer.

Also, you can even learn how to be your own wand-maker. Good luck finding a tutorial for something that doesn't obey the laws of space or time.
