  • 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.

    Really? Surely it is? My understanding was that the name isn't as silly as it sounds however (it's named after the initial sponsor, not the planet).

    So who sponsored the superbowl? A superglue company? Or a bowl manufacturer?

    Only the US cares about these sports, the rest of the world doesn't know what they are. We assume they are all something like rugby but with ludicrous amounts of padding and a big metal helmet.

    Rugby is just like football.. except for players are smaller, weaker, slower and less athletic. And without the strategic elements of play calling.

    Rugby is played with a pointy ball and you're allowed to pick it up. Football is played with a round ball and you're not allowed to touch it in play, unless you're the goalie.

    American "football" is a bastardised Rugby game, played by wimps in padded romper suits.

    Oh yes, and while I'm at it, "Baseball" is merely Rounders played in pyjamas.

    I live in Perth, Western Australia. Our winters are between 10 and 30 Degrees C. But in a few weeks we'll be living in 40 Degree's C with little wind and no chance of rain. This does not stop until sometime in May or June. It will probably be more like July this year (thanks La Nina).

    Kids these days, complaining about the snow. Send some of it down here ya blasted ingrates.
