  • 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.

    Which would you rather have happen?
    Swift kick in your nether regions
    Molars removed without sedation
    Fingers broken 1 by 1 by a casino henchman
    Your favorite food and beverage hand delivered by the person you're most attracted to

    Takes the fun out of the polls.

    I think he suggests reintroducing slavery. He probably didn't like the latest Lincoln movie.

    "Surely, we'll get some crackheads that at least want a $1/hour."

    This doesn't work because many people will cease to shop where crackheads are running the store... thus actually reducing profits. Hiring good labor at the right price is key to bringing in money.

    Apparently this guy has never been to Walmart....

    I think they have subtle differences.
    Chicken shit seems synonymous with scared. It's usually spelled as two words.
    Horse shit and bullshit are often interchangeable and mean nonsense, stupid or untrue. However bullshit is more popular as a word.
    Bullshit also is the only *shit phrase I know of with a easy to use 2-letter abbreviation; bs.
    You forgot to mention batshit. As in "You must be batshit crazy to think that this chicken shit outfit gives horse shit about your bullshit."
