    Default Pointless Poll Pointless Poll

    Yes, you read it right. What was the most inspiring pointless poll you have participated in? For me it’s gotta be the Toaster Intensity Pointless Poll because it made me aware how much I had to say about nuttin’.

    And equally important: why do you think we you participate in pointless polls?

    Cartoon women. It was so wrong, and yet we all knew where it was coming from. Didn't we? Guys? Hey, where's everyone gone...

    And IMHO we participate in pointless polls to thumb our noses at the pointlessness of life. Its our way of saying, we laugh in the face of opur own meaninglessness. (Damn, if only I was French i could build a whole academic career out of that insight)

    By the way is this now the first ever pointless meta-poll? Or is it a meta-pointless poll? In which case I salute you for raising pointlessness to new and hitherto unsuspected heights.

    I'm sorry we've lost you, Drisos. Yes EA, we are reaching ever new heights in org-anic metapolism. Kongamato has taught us to bring pointlessness to the people, otherwise what's the point?

    Had to be the Toaster. We demonstrated that, with just a little bit of effort, and even feigned interest, the most banal, everyday topic can be infused with meaning and life.

    Tea or Coffee

    Just wondering if people like to have tea or coffee during morning and night?

    It just so pointless to ask that eh?...cause its a pointless poll where you discuss pointless stuff by starting a conversation talking about stuff that is so pointless. Whats tha point? Just talk anything pointless as long its fun and nice.

    Well, this one was not on there, so "Gah!" seemed most fitting. I would have said this one, because it sparked an interest in the other pointless polls. Pointless polls: they're fun. Silly gossip, I think, is more fun than the pointacracy that usually doesn't reach a conclusion, ergo it lacks itself. ( ) When else can you loftily make assertions with sentences that are poorly constructed for the very purpose of being just that: poorly contructed to the point of not being structured properly. At least, that's how I see it.

    GARCIN: I "dreamt," you say. It was no dream. When I chose the hardest path, I made my choice deliberately. A man is what he wills himself to be.
    INEZ: Prove it. Prove it was no dream. It's what one does, and nothing else, that shows the stuff one's made of.
    GARCIN: I died too soon. I wasn't allowed time to - to do my deeds.
    INEZ: One always dies too soon - or too late. And yet one's whole life is complete at that moment, with a line drawn neatly under it, ready for the summing up. You are - your life, and nothing else.

    Yes, when you reach 10000 posts you get the option to revise your poll selections.

    So, . . . about one more week for you

    It has to be a poll about pointless polls, Although Im impressed my Olympic poll made the list ahead of my Startrek v Starwars one.

    As to the question of why we make/participate in them, I think its to disguise the fact that our posts are actually mindless spam!!

    10,000 or 1,000? If it's 10,000 i'd say 10 more weeks lol
