It's Friday Poll Time!

Poll #1293150 Friday! Friday!! Friday!!!

coldblackncold -- Are earthquakes weather?

Yes: They usually result in some sort of television reporter standing in a Gorton's Fisherman jacket in front of carnage trying to make it look like they're in danger.
1(7.1%)
No: Weather comes from the sky down. Earthquakes come from the ground up.
7(50.0%)
Yes: They can cause school or business closings.
3(21.4%)
No: Weather is a constant thing, even when it's just sunny and 70 degrees. Earthquakes are finite.
3(21.4%)

twicketface -- What is this, some sort of circumcision question?

Nope, sorry. This won't be making the cut.
8(57.1%)
That comment wasn't supposed to be foreshadowing or anything.
2(14.3%)
Way to pull back the useless flap on your question.
1(7.1%)
Taking my snark as your question? That's hubris if you ask me.
3(21.4%)

eideteker -- Is there any statistical bias in poll answers? Is it like a standardized test, where the answer is always "c"? And how are you supposed to "draw a house" on the bubble sheet without putting two answers on the same line?

While the poll is open to the entire Livejournal community, the results are undeniably biased towards a select group of about twenty of you.
4(28.6%)
Answers including jokes about things going into or coming out of butts are usually the most popular.
3(21.4%)
I usually list them in the order in which I thought of them.
3(21.4%)
If you're already considering drawing a house on your standardized test sheet, why would you even worry about having two answers on the same line?
4(28.6%)

subbes -- Stupid "amusing" slogans on the stick-up-letter signs outside businesses

Two Guys Plumbing: We repair what your husband fixed.
1(7.7%)
Johnny's Brakes & Mufflers: No appointment necessary. We heard you coming.
6(46.2%)
Hercules Gym: Merry Fitness and a Happy New Rear!

(One I didn't take from the Internets but saw on a truck recently for a plumbing/heating company): Call us and get gas!
2(15.4%)

pooplord -- Worst cold symptom and why?

Sinus pressure. It makes your face feel like it weighs eighteen pounds and is trying to secede from your skull.
6(42.9%)
Post-nasal drip. The constant horking and snorting and feeling like it's going to finally do the trick but there's always more.
4(28.6%)
The overall exhaustion/rubbery skin feeling. Even when you're not feeling any other symptoms, you're just toast and there's really nothing you can do about it.
2(14.3%)
Ear congestion. It feels like you're on a plane waiting for the pop and it never comes.
2(14.3%)

absolutcalm -- Of all the terrible things Prince hath wrot, which is the absolute worst?

TAFKAP. It spurred a trend of The Blank Formerly Known As Blank "jokes", and I suspect it was the precursor to celebrity couple name jumbling.
9(64.3%)
Somehow he convinced someone that he's sexy. He's probably a great lay and pays close attention to detail, but come on. We've all seen the When Doves Cry video when he was coming out of the tub.
1(7.1%)
Thanks to "Nothing Compares 2 U", the popularization of substituting letters and numbers for words in song titles.
2(14.3%)
"Party Like it's ____".
2(14.3%)

renob423 -- why do all hard liquor ads end in "drink responsibly" when is the last time anyone ever did shots and did anything responsible in the same night? how come ciggarettes don't say "smoke healtily" on the side of cartons? when is the drunkest youve ever been

The night I realized I should be diluting my Mad Dog with Sprite because I was drinking it faster than it was getting me drunk. Otherwise known as the last night I wandered around campus with *two* bottles of 20/20 in the pockets of my cargo pants.
1(7.7%)
When I was on Atkins and I thought it was ok for me to drink a freaking magnum of red wine by myself and then my brother made me take some vodka shots because he drew the short straw on DD and I barfed in the map holder of my Sister-I-L's car.
6(46.2%)
The night at Heaven and Hell when I decided I was going to dance on this platform & thought everybody was watching me because I was dancing so well and went to step back and my foot went in between the platform and the wall and I landed on my shin.
4(30.8%)
At a recent going away happy hour for a coworker during which I told the guest of honor that she should treat herself to a nice "slut phase" in her new hometown, and when I got home I was hungry and wanted Ramen but was afraid of using the stove.
2(15.4%)

There's a farmers market in the park behind my office building every Friday from the spring through the fall. Funniest thing about the farmers market?

There are at most two farmers there. All the other stalls are breads, coffee, honey, soap, dog treats or flowers.
2(15.4%)
My co-worker, after buying an apple there casually said to the farmer she was happy she could eat it right away since he didn't use pesticides. The farmer blinks and says "of course we do."
4(30.8%)
One of the farmers, an old leathery guy in his late sixties or early seventies, wears a Scarface sweatshirt.
4(30.8%)
All of the farmers smoke cigarettes while they're working.
3(23.1%)
