  • 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.

    I seem to live about 2 timezones west of where I am and I don't think moving would help. Mornings are just something I can't do.

    I wish our earth would rotate slower. My personal day length is somewhere around 26 hours. I have experimentally verified it during long holidays (when I studied physics I used to have 3 months of summer holidays with enough funding and nothing to do), where my perceived day would rotate roughly one cycle in a fortnight.

    When I talked to others I found that this is more os less the same for a lot of people. I wonder why we haven't managed to adapt to a 24 hour cycle. Or maybe we did adapt, but our no-longer-hunter-and-collector lifestyle makes us un-adapt.

    Fun fact: Most of Alaska should be one or two timezones behind where they are. The state is UCT -9. Geographically, every non-SE part should be UCT -10, -11 or ±12. But since time is so screwed up in the state's non SE-bits (Either endless light or pretty much none, with rapid changes between the two), UCT -9 works in a pinch. Of course that fact underlines how useless DST is in the north.

    Okay, I lied. That fact wasn't even slightly fun.
