  • 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.

    Sadly, I can't get anything done unless the deadline's looming, the knife's to the bone, failure is imminent. This does not bode well for me since my "work" went from "homework due tomorrow" to "come up with a PhD thesis proposal by the end of the year"...

    You ever had a Red Bull? I've never had a Red Bull before, but I had a Red Bull last night — I really like Red Bull reeeeeeed buuuuuuuuullllllllah

    I find stimulants only wind me up, they do nothing for improving problem solving or working though logic. Fruit sugar is the best brain fuel - eat an apple, peach, pear, raisins, etc. Of course, the phony stimulant companies don't want you to know it's that simple or inexpensive.

    My productivity peaks about 15 minutes after drinking a large cup of coffee. How large the cup has to be depends on the time of day so we're talking gallons before 10:00 am and just a shot of espresso around 10:00 pm.

    Totally agree with this, for two reasons.

    First, the English system is better than metric because a lot of it is based on fractions. Half a pint, a quarter of an inch. It is much easier for the human eye to split something into halves than tenths. Which makes it much easier to figure out what 1/16 of an inch is compared to 0.1 cm. Now, instead of converting to metric, what we should have done is convert to base 16 numbering system.

    Second, the English system is more future proof then the metric every was. You can't convert 1 mm to cm exactly in floating point, so there are all these rounding errors with the base-10 that the metric system is inseparably linked to. In hexadecimal, it would be .166666 (repeating) cm! What a horrible system in the age of computers!

    I agree it's nonsensical if you only look at the minute of 12:00 in both cases. If you look at the hour as a whole, it's clear that after noon from 12:01-12:59 are PM times, so for consistency's sake the whole hour is considered to be PM. The converse is true for the hour of 12 AM (midnight to 1 AM). It would be even more confusing if it went 12:00 AM -> 12:01 PM in my opinion.

    The problem is that "12PM" refers to both the moment that is mid-day, and the hour long period between 12:00:00 and 12:59:59. If you think of it as a period then "12PM" makes more sense, since it takes place entire in the afternoon. 24 hour time is obviously much clearer and easier.

    I have seen some places in Japan that advertise being open until 27:00, meaning 3:00 the next day.

Logic is a pretty flower that smells bad.
