  • 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.

    Not that I ever listen to that advice.

    Although, I suppose tomorrow is pretty close to this...

    "So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."

    I am most productive on Saturdays and Sundays because I have to go to my job Mondays–Fridays, which prevents me from getting much of anything interesting or worthwhile done on those days.

    Well, since in C and C++, the order of evaluation is not specified, it's perfectly possible that in this statement, tomorrow is evaluated before today. If in addition it happens that the day changes exactly in between those evaluations, both will give the same day, resulting in the while condition to give false. So there's a slight chance that you'll actually do work eventually; however the bad news is that you'll have to work right after midnight.

    In the modern tech based workplace, it has to be Friday.

    Friday is the day when all of the "managers" (suits, project managers, etc.) realize they held meetings all week rather than doing the productive things they promised would be delivered.

    Around 10am on Fridays, right as they're getting back from their first Starbucks run of the day, they usually start freaking out that the week's scheduled 40 hours hasn't been started yet. By 11, the Engineers are performing their well rehearsed "We don't launch on Fridays" speeches. By noon, the Engineers have realized it's going to be listened to about as much as it is every other week and get crunching. That leaves 6 hours - seven or eight by the time they stay late - to achieve an impressive 40 hours worth of work.

    And thus, Friday is the most productive day in the modern tech based workplace.

    Yes, definitely a missing option:

    Any day without meetings!

    Wow..working Sunday nights? Working some nights (not late?) till 8-9pm??


    How many hours a week do you work? I can understand what sounds like long hours if you're working for yourself, but if for someone else...not me. I do 40 hours weeks, and that's it. ON the occasional extra time during crunches, I'll work what it takes, but I WILL get paid for it. I don't work for free.

    My free time is the MOST important time to me.
