  • Don't complain about lack of options. You've got to pick a few when you do multiple choice. Those are the breaks.
  • Feel free to suggest poll ideas if you're feeling creative. I'd strongly suggest reading the past polls first.
  • This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you're using these numbers to do anything important, you're insane.

    I don't fly, but I think the "I can do that but choose not to" feeling is important, compared to "I am not allowed to do that, therefore I so wish it!" feeling.

    I actually traveled a fair amount before the naked scan machines went in. Nowadays, I've limited my traveling to the US, going by train or car. Sure, it's inconvenient, sure it means I can't go places I'd otherwise be able to, but compared to the price others have paid for the Fourth Amendment I'm not feeling like it's that much of a sacrifice.

    Actually you can get around the prohibition. Just sign up for PreCheck (Coming to an airport near you) - pay them the required fee (100 bucks or so) get screened by a TSA employee at an airport and be able to breeze through airport security without taking your shoes off, removing your laptop, or limiting yourself to a 1 qt ziplock bag.

    I love the business model - I will provide service so horrible to you that you are willing to pay an additional 100 dollars a year to get through my service and just pretend like I wasn't here. I can see the model now. Pay Dell 100 bucks a year and someone with a soft midwest accent will answer the phone and actually provide service. Oh wait - I guess that is already an option for their business customers.

    Hm. Gender isn't particularly a selection criterion (though while Dexter is frequently a male name, I'd be less likely to attribute gender to a 'nym).

    I think it's more about the social affectations of people likely to show up in an airplane nude. Which is to say that I'm fine with the nudity - as long as they're not being aggressive about it. Most folks I know who are interested in being nude in places not generally considered appropriate for social nudity are either totally chill, or totally in your face.

    Clothing is useful when protecting the clothed.

    Clothes, because I need somewhere to keep my pockets.
