That one is scheduled for 2012 when the LHC gets up to full speed, isn't it?

Well, the new survey is up. The last one ran longer than it should have. But then we missed the spring and summer issues of the ezine so...

The results of the last show how cynical folks online are:

Will 2010 be better or worse than 2009?

Better 21%
Worse 2%
Same 21%
Meh. Wake me in 2012. 55%


The new survey is now up. It fits with Michael S Collins' three part article about the supernatural in fiction. And since it's spread over the current, and next two issues of the ezine, maybe we can let this survey have an extended run too... ;)

Now vote!

I don't know if I "believe" in the supernatural, as that would imply faith. Let's just say I'm a sceptic, yet open to the idea that I may not know everything (yeah, hard to imagine, I know) :razz:

Belief in supernatural or paranormal phenomena should never be confused with faith in my view. Faith is for religion, believing in unproved fairy tales. The paranormal is real. There are legitimate fields of scientific study. So... :razz:

Well, I probably don't differentiate it the same way. 10 people claiming having seen a UFO or a ghost is no different to me than 10 people claiming that Jebus speaks to them directly. For all I know, all 10-20 people could be right or wrong. Unless you have first hand experience (while sober and rational), you will always take somebody elses word for it. Hence 'Faith'...

All a matter of perspective, but thats my angle on it :)

Oopsie. Just realised I haven't been updating this thread. I don't remember the results of the "Do you believe in the supernatural?".

As I recall, it was an even mix between "Yes", "No" and "Zombies!!!".

Anyhow, the current survey reflects what may be our last year on the planet.

Well, the world obviously didn't end.

The survey results were:

Is December, 2012 the end?

Yes 14%
No 49%
Bah! Bloody fringies! 36%

So 86% had a clue and 14%... well, I hope they were joking although having seen some segments on the news of people that were preparing for the end...

Anyhow, now I have to come up with a new survey. Something witty and clever. Maybe a Ewen styled X vs Y. Gorth, any suggestions?

Just a bit of brainstorming...

A poll of polls? What are your favourite polls, either/or polls or multiple choice polls or none of the above? (a truly pointless poll)

Edit: Could have a I refuse to vote in a rigged poll option

A poll of letters, 'ou' vs 'o'. Honour, Honor, Armour, Armor, Valour, Valor, Mourning, Morning (oh, wait...)

A poll of primes, which is your favourite prime number.

A poll of science, do you believe anything in the universe can move faster than light, yes!, no!, relative to what?

A poll of intolerance, which are worse, chauvinists or feminists

Well Gorth, I had to put something up for the new year and since you didn't give me a final survey I had to do it myself.

And the results of the last survey, which was done for New Years and ran longer than your average Hollywood film so we could get the new site ready... I tell you kids... when I was your age... we got 10 movies a year and they stayed in the theaters and you saw them over and over and over....

What is your favourite calendar?

Gregorian calendar - 40%
Julian calendar - 11%
Swimsuit calendar - 31%
Firemen calendar - 5%

The new survey is up on the brand-spanking new site so...vote!

Why would using IE10 make you an internet noob, of all things? It's pretty comparable to other browsers, and don't give me this "Microsoft doesn't adhere to standards" sillyness that hasn't been true for years now. Other companies (*cough* (cr)Apple *cough*) have been much worse in that regard.

Funny to see how Microsoft went from the all-encompassing evil of the IT world to the ones fighting the good fight against much worse companies. Heh. Biggest face/heel turn ever, probably.
Requested: One Mark V ECM unit, 1000 km of Fullerene cable, one low-yield nuclear warhead.

Purpose: Surprise party for foreign dignitary.

Sure, majestic, reply to a month old post from our resident troll. ;)

On that subject though, the only people I know that use IE are... well, internet n00bs for lack of a better term or web developers and the latter only using for testing. Pretty much everyone else I know uses FF, Chrome, Opera, etc,. Very, very few people that I know use IE once they learn how simple it is to use other browsers.
