  • 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 need new knees, and new teeth.

    If I had a million dollars I could get those fixed now. So maybe I'd just print $1 million rather than wait.

    If it was possible several years ago I would check OE pancreas as well but for my Dad who passed away from pancreatic cancer. Only had 7 weeks from diagnosis until death.

    Completely missing an organ is a drag to say the least. My _young_ wife had her thyroid (and a few other things) removed 4 years ago (cancer). After that it's treatment for life, and a quality of life that goes down the drain: sex went from twice a day to once a week overnight, inability to do anything tiring, long time to recover from a night out or a day hiking, etc... Yup, I'll print her a new one as soon as I can !

    And lung capacity will be back sooner than that. I quit 3 years ago, and I still get winded more easily than people who have never smoked. Some of the damage never does repair.
    That said, to the OP: Quit! Quit now! You will never regret quitting! Nothing feels better than waking up in the morning not needing a smoke.
    Don't forget all the extra money you will have for new "toys".

    Either way it is no big deal.

    I wish. The foreskin is an important part of male anatomy, and circumcision has serious negative consequences for not only the man, but his female partner as well.

    A study in 2007 by Sorrells, et al., measured the fine-touch sensitivity of 19 different places on the male genitalia, both circumcised and intact. This study concluded that "circumcision ablates the most sensitive parts of [male anatomy]."

    Someone was nice enough to create color-coded diagrams using the data from this study to visually show the areas of sensitivity:

    Google functions of the foreskin for more information.

    The problem isn't that [single payer healthcare is] evil, it's that the U.S. simply can't afford it.

    I see this claim often, but it's simply not true. The UK spends about $3000 per person per year. The US spends nearly three times that much, and doesn't even get coverage for everyone as a result.

    The cost delta, scaled to our ~300M population, is over $1.5 Trillion per year. If we wanted less-meager universal healthcare, we could spend 66% more than the UK, in which case we'd save "only" $1T per year.

Every successful person has had failures but repeated failure is no guarantee of eventual success.
