    And if you get into an ugly argument with your opponent, you have two rooks to throw at him, and he has only one measly queen QED

    But the sharp points on the queen's crown will do more damage than blunt rooks, and she's taller, so she'll penetrate deeper into the brain.  Surprised

    Depends on the situation over the board.

    Two rooks are usually better. If there are open files on the board the rooks are almost always better. If there are key diagonals to be attacked the queen may have superiority. All depends on the situation, but I almost always take two rooks.

    It all depends on the position of the peices that are on the board.If its away down to two Rooks and a king checkmating a king,then two rooks can do it a lot sooner.Two rooks are 10 points to the Queens nine points,so if i was in that position soon in mygame i would take the two rooks.
