  • Don't complain about lack of options. You've got to pick a few when you do multiple choice. Those are the breaks.
  • Feel free to suggest poll ideas if you're feeling creative. I'd strongly suggest reading the past polls first.
  • This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you're using these numbers to do anything important, you're insane.

    Peasant! I'll pay someone to wear the technology for me.

    And then it will take off.

    Not just face recognition to remember people's names for you, it'll be something networky so it can go viral. Or something that increases safety so parents get it for their kids.

    People like you are going to force me to wear masks in public.

    I'm cool with that, so why wait?

    This poll reminds me of a hilarious scatological joke I heard years ago. I found a version of it here [jokelibrary.net]:

                Bill Gates, Andy Grove, and Jerry Sanders (Heads of MicroSoft, Intel, and AMD, Advanced Micro Devices) were in a high-powered business meeting. During the serious, tense discussion, a beeping noise suddenly is emitted from where Bill is sitting.
                Bill says, "Oh, that's my beeper. Gentlemen, excuse me, I need to take this call." Bill lifts his wristwatch to his ear and begins talking into the end of his tie. After completing this call, he notices the others are staring at him. Bill explains, "Oh, this is my new personal communication system. I have an earpiece built into my watch and a microphone sewn into the end of my tie. That way I can take a call anywhere."
              The others nod, and the meeting continues.
              Five minutes later, the discussion is again interrupted when Andy starts beeping. He states, "Excuse me gentlemen, this must be an important call." Andy taps his earlobe and begins talking into thin air. When he completes his call, he notices the others staring at him and explains, "I also have a personal communication system. My earpiece is actually implanted in my earlobe, and the microphone is actually embedded in this fake tooth."
              The others nod, and the meeting continues.
              Five minutes later, the discussion is again interrupted when Jerry emits a thunderous fart. He looks up at the others staring at him and says, "Somebody get me a piece of paper... I'm receiving a fax!"

    I also haven't seen one in ages. They seemed to have vanished around 2007/2008.

    Are you a time traveler, perhaps?

    Yes, but I seem to be stuck going in one direction and at a pretty constant pace.

Machines certainly can solve problems, store information, correlate, and play games -- but not with pleasure. -- Leo Rosten
