I just want to say . . . knowing Emily as well as I do . . . she's lying right there.

:lol: :lol:

Oh, Josh.. . ....now I feel quite badly. Poor bloke -- I walzed in and went on like gangbusters...I'll go search for him throughout the other active c.com threads, the ones that that are asking for participation in polls -- methinks that is where he'd be.....

You know, I may have accomplished one little victory, here.....one little goal.... ....I am certain, I could somehow just feel, that Josh completely agreed with me on the sad absence of "Frequently" in mainstream polling.

He has gone, and run with it.

He is going to make it happen.

THAT is where he's gone.

Go, Josh, GO!!!

I wonder, if we took a poll about taking polls, how many of us would be in favor of taking polls? I don't personally like multiple choice questions, since frequently the answer I want to give is not one of the options offered.

Well, we know what answer Oscar wants to give, "Yes, I want a darn cookie now!"

Once again, none of the above is what I would answer.

5). 293.25 and the Tower of London

And every poll should offer "41" as a possible answer, cause we all know it is the answer.

At this rate, we will soon have designed the perfect poll. One that everyone on C.com will want to answer!

I can't believe Elye didn't say she always chooses #2 though. Very strange.

Josh started a non-poll thread here.

What Were Your Symptoms? What Got Better?

It's almost like he wants us to hijack his threads! :lol: Kidding!

In the same questionnaire (poll??) (for 85 following questions :o )

1 NEVER (Strongly Disagree)

2 RARELY (Disagree)

3 SOMETIMES (Not sure)

4 USUALLY (Agree)

5 ALWAYS (Strongly agree)

Anybody see "frequently" here?? Does "Sometimes" mean "Not Sure" ??? :rolleyes:

This is an eight-page freakin' questionnaire :unsure: I need help :blink:

Sample question: " I have a problem with headaches while sleeping" Well, shoot, if I had a headache I wouldn't be sleeping, and if I had a headache and were sleeping, perchance, would that be a problem?

Frequently would probably be the perfect answer. (or perhaps Not Sure??) :lol:

Shroomie? What?

I have done something without knowing if I was asleep? Or maybe medicated? What are you filling out and what is the result you want? Maybe we can figure out the answers if we know what you want out of the thing.h

I think youse guys failed to unnerstand the question:

"Have you ever experienced doing something without being aware at the time of the action? "

My muvver always taught me you learn from experience. (Well, of course, she would have preferred I listened and not had to do the experience part :P ) But to learn from experience you have to have been aware you were doing it at the time of the action, surely, Unless..... you come to and say, "Oh dear! How did I get here?" Oh, wait, I just got to question 65, they got that covered: "While drinking alcohol, I have carried out actons without being aware of them, and have not remembered them the next day." :lol: I don't think frequently is the answer to this one.

It ALWAYS is.. . . ... and it's NEVER THERE! Truly fascinating.... . . ...why is this? I am going to google this -- Why is the word 'frequently' never a choice in polls?

Ah, they may not have put in frequently, but did you notice they did include "rarely"? They do have the concept, they just refuse to use it!

My 16 lb Emily does the same thing, but she licks my eyelids to try to make me open them, and failing that she then proceeds to wash my hair (you'd think she didn't have enough of her own :o )

I figured they meant - You did something, like sleep walking or eating, & found out the next day cause your little brother took a picture of it & posted it on FB.

By the way . . . I wanted to officially answer the poll in question, but I wanted to add some disclaimers (as I often do in polls) . . .

My dog does not like question #1 or #2 at all (umm, yes, I know, not a choice.)

However, if there are dog treats associated with either #1 or #2, then my dog likes them a lot.

OK, carry on.

...and if we're talking multiple choice questions, what happened to 'none of the above'? <_< ....which fits in with 'frequently'

....because if a poll asked.."How often would you choose 'none of the above'?, naturally the answer would be.....

Frequently!

So, I took a poll here where I am among myself and the other denizens of of the locus.

All the others said, "frequently none of the above apply and so we are going to bed." :P
