  • 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.

    As one who works at a retail store I absolutely hate that this day even exists and ironically enough it exists the day after we give thanks for everything we already have.

    You're silly. Buy stuff you need, don't buy it WHEN you need it.

    Read this again.
    "Buy stuff you need" - clearly implied I do need it, and clearly I'm going to buy it when I need it, because the need is present.
    To be more clear: If I need something, I'll buy it then, rather than wait for whatever time comes when it's 20% off or whatever. As far as clothing goes, I only buy it from overstock stores we have here, where everything is on sale anyway, with as much as 80% off. I need a pair of jeans? I go to those cheap stores and just get it.

    Also, you clearly missed my country of origin. It is NOT the US. And Lands' End, for example, charges to ship overseas add at least 10% cost (for above 4500 USD orders!), which makes it "unfeasible" for me. Prices here are already way lower than what I see there anyway. So thanks for the detailed, yet useless answer. Keep trying though :)

  • Yeah I don't shop like the plague either. the plague isn't choosy and thrives on ignorance.

    Setting traps for children, what an ass.

    Becasue all gifts are just things you buy.
    Seriously dude, you might want to think again.
    I have a one of a kind glass ornament, hand made and its beautiful.
    It was s great gift.
    My kids make my things. one year my someone made me a little minecraft game where I though levers in a sequence and then a huge explosion happen revealing the words 'Happy Birthday, Dad" underneath it.

    Good luck buying that.

    One year, a friend gave me a hand made and painted papper lanterns from overseas. It's really cool and nice. I never would have bought that for myself.
    I don't give, 'junk'.

    Of course not, he works in an american retail chain. We'll just let all the customers give him a tip. More customers means more tips, right?
