    Scandinavian is one of the worst in the legit move catagory, but no where near worst. 1.e4 f5 is the worst continuation for black, period.

    I believe b5 is worse on basis that after Bxb5 c6 Be2, white is up a pawn and black has no compensation whatsoever, whereas with f5, after exf5 Nf6, black has lead in development, center majority, and black also is likely to regain the pawn after d5. Nevertheless, votes shall be updatationed.

    3... g6 or 3... h6 both respond well to that.

    Maybe I'm feeding a troll again here but obviously those moves don't even "respond well" for White in the same position up a tempo after 1. e4 e5 2. f3 exf4 3. Nf3 g5. Also you have 3. d4 and 3. Be2 to deal with. If Black could regain the pawn it'd be a fantastic opening.
