RE: This is...

You punk, you got it out of me. Yessir, I'd like more serious polls here. But actually the main interest in the polls for me is the discussions they breed. And the more serious (read: political polls) have led to some markedly un-interesting drivel and sad displays of ignorance. So I guess it's a wash.

RE: This is...

I like the serious (or semi-serious) polls best. I like the discussion part best. Maybe a good idea for a serious poll would be to post a very specific serious poll. Tackle an issue currently being debated in congress. Post links to background information.

Besides, there's always room for humor in serious topics, but I don't think that tOdd needs to be told that.

I really don't think it matters how serious the topic of the poll is. You're still going to have self proclaimed "doctors" putting other people down, and twelve year olds who make fun of those self proclaimed doctors. (Juvenile as it is, it's still entertaining. ;c) )
And with any poll, you can probably find SOMEONE intelligent enough to read your post and reply appropriately. Then again, maybe not. You never know.

RE: This is...

One major incarnation of humor is making light of a serious matter. This fine oddtodd site, which uses unemployment as that 'anchor' which allows such humor, can only be taken so seriously in that it doesn't offer any real solution to whatever problem. It does offer outlets for ??? that people have goin' on, unemployment, time-abundance, superiority, puberty, etceteracy. As long as the poll keeps offering outlets, then whatever it. World problems won't be solved here, but people need outlets.
