There needs to be a none of the above option, maybe even an all of the above option.

But somehow I am getting the sence this is from a joke in last night's chat.

I voted for Cune, because with all his Babylonian connections, I suspect him from being Iraqi...


And, yes, the poll subject was suggested during the chat. By @tomic (which is no leading it) as a matter of fact.

Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

Wait a minute! I wasn't at that chat and yet I somehow made very specific reference to chat.

Take that, skeptics!

...and stuff!

I need to change my vote...

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?

Man; I don't know what Ricky has done but he seems unpopular all the sudden!

Difficult choice, but I went with Dave 'cause he's too damn smart for his own good. ;-)

I think people are going for Ricky 'cause he's young and will put up more of an entertaining fight. Us older folks will cave as fast as Christopher Hitchens.

A couple of pilot friends of mine have gone through SERE.

One said, "I've been waterboarded. It's not that bad. Those guys are all pussies."

The other said, "man, I was able to endure it only because I knew in the back of my head that these guys were on my side and they wouldn't do anything to really harm me. If I didn't know that, I would have confessed to anything, whether I did it or not."

Take that for what it's worth.

Wow; Ricky appears to be in trouble.


Let me take this opportunity to state that I always hated that guy!

Well, Ricky has been run over by a truck, twice. I'd say, if anyone here is resilient enough to endure waterboarding, my bet is on him...

I leave for 3 freakin' days, and look what happens. I'm just really curious as to why people voted for me... Maybe it was jealousy. Yea, jealousy. That's it, that has to be it. Jealousy...

Why continue? Because we must. Because we have the call. Because it is nobler to fight for rationality without winning than to give up in the face of continued defeats. Because whatever true progress humanity makes is through the rationality of the occasional individual and because any one individual we may win for the cause may do more for humanity than a hundred thousand who hug their superstitions to their breast.
- Isaac Asimov
