Oh my. This is some spooky synchronicity. Your post came just in time to provide me with the absolutely perfect introduction to my new poll.

Yow !

Great poll, by the way. And when I read about the surrealist obsession with polls, I was thinking to myself, "Now, where else does that happen these days ?"
