  • 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.

    2:00 and 10:00 - Older way driver's ed teachers would teach steering, leading to such things as Driver's Ed'ed! [] (skip to 0:37 if you don't want to see the whole thing).

    3:00 and 9:00 - Holding your arms at the side if the wheel so you can stick your elbow into the face of your passenger.

    4:00 and 8:00 - The lazy option, this allows you to keep your hands in your lap.

    9:45 and 2:17 - George Carlin: "Now, a few basic points about driving. One of the first things they teach you in Driver's Ed is where to put your hands on the steering wheel. They tell you put 'em at ten o'clock and two o'clock. Never mind that. I put mine at 9:45 and 2:17. Gives me an extra half hour to get where I'm goin'."

    None of your business where I put my hands! - Umm, what are you doing behind the wheel there?

    Missing completely is of course something about CowboyNeal.

    I've only ever driven an automatic but I still do it that way.

    Not without heavy-duty rollover/crush protection. A regular seatbelt allows the occupant's torso to pivot to the side if the roof begins to crush down on him, while a 4-point harness holds him rigidly upright.

If I have not seen so far it is because I stood in giant's footsteps.
