    Okay, this is a little late to start, but I figured this is the best way to get results.

    For my Honors Math class, I have to survey 25 people, doesn't matter who or how old, with two different polls.

    This is the first. I need 25 votes by Thursday morning, at the latest.

    Thanks for participating, if you will.

    Tolkien told lots of good stories, but I think (because of his profession, he was an English professor, IIRC) that oftentimes, if there was a decision to be made between moving the story along quickly and crafting immaculate sentences and paragraphs, he erred on the side of grammatical purity.

    He's cool, but a lot of his stuff bores the **** out of me to read.

    The title of this thread doesn't necessarily reflect my opinion, it's just an eye-grabber.
