  • 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.

    5/6 answers are basically the same. What's next, a poll about which swear word we yell when we get pulled over for speeding? A poll about what the deal is with airline food?

    Really, if they don't see you move you are invisible right?

    We don't have a large CCTV presence here.

    I wish Slashdot would remember that it has a global community of readers and be more considerate!!!

    My line of thought would be along the lines of big sunglasses and a fake beard.

    The next person will have an interesting time wondering why big sunglasses and a fake beard are on a security camera.

    I was going to shoot for "Meh", but I guess the modern internet is made for people who grew up in a "with us or against us, pick a side NOW" political environment, leading to the given choices of "must devote absolutely every waking second to destroying these obvious eldritch abominations against all that is sane and just in our perception of reality, nay, in any possible concept of reality that can exist in the cosmos" or "HERRRRRRP A DERP ME LOVES TEH GUMBERMINTS CUZ ME SO DUMB AND PART OF TEH PROBLUMS DERP". Oh, well. The internet was good while it lasted!

    meh,

    Software can now recognize a face in a database of 100,000. This is no need of someone watching.
    Just smile to them, it makes it harder for them...

    Walking around with an A3 sheet containing pictures of a bunch of wanted people would cause a few problems with their facial recognition software...

    "No," said Ford, who by this time was a little more rational and coherent than he had been, having finally had the coffee forced down him, "nothing so simple. Nothing anything like to straightforward. On its world, the people are people. The leaders are lizards. The people hate the lizards and the lizards rule the people."
    "Odd," said Arthur, "I thought you said it was a democracy."
    "I did," said Ford. "It is."
    "So," said Arthur, hoping he wasn't sounding ridiculously obtuse, "why don't the people get rid of the lizards?"
    "It honestly doesn't occur to them," said Ford. "They've all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government they've voted in more or less approximates to the government they want."
    "You mean they actually vote for the lizards?"
    "Oh yes," said Ford with a shrug, "of course."
    "But," said Arthur, going for the big one again, "why?"
    "Because if they didn't vote for a lizard," said Ford, "the wrong lizard might get in."

    The watchers can then watch themselves.

Pound for pound, the amoeba is the most vicious animal on earth.
