    How about some cooking threads?

    --Yes, but I hate to cook
    --Yes, but I don't get to cook very often
    --I'm average, but I love to cook
    --I'm average, and I hate to cook
    --I'm average, but I don't get to cook very often
    --No, I'm horrible, but I love to try
    --No, I'm horrible and I hate cooking
    --No, I'm horrible but I don't get many chances to improve
    --Other (please specify)

    Do you cook with Garlic?
    --Yes, I grow my own
    --Yes, I use fresh cloves from the store/market
    --Yes, I use minced garlic in a jar

    --Yes, I use garlic salt
    --Yes, I use some other form of garlic seasoning
    --No, but I use meats, cheeses, etc. with garlic seasoning in them

    When you cook, do you ...
    --Follow a recipe to the letter

    --Follow a recipe just to get the cooking temperatures right

    --I'm a good cook but a bad baker
    --I'm a good baker but a bad cook
    --I'm bad at both baking and cooking

    Some good polls, guys.

    SOTS, feel free to post the Gore Verbinski one after Friday, and the Ang Lee one whenever. The Bryan Singer one I'm unsure of as you've really had to work to make up the options, with TV episodes and short films. Thoughts?

    Well, I just wanted to fill up the poll a bit, seeing as he's only done 5 feature films.

    Alright, well perhaps do it, but without the TV episodes. They don't really fit, to me, and I'm not sure if anyone would vote for them.

    Okay, that's about the most random poll suggestion I've ever seen. Any background to it? :p

    Yes. There is a background to it.

    I have a theory. My theory is this. Conservatives drink Coke and Liberals drink Pepsi. We want a "scientific" poll to measure the accuracy of my hypothesis.

    Of course, we all know that Coke is the real thing and Pepsi is a cheap, flat knockoff.

    For the record, I drink Coke . . . and I'm a Conservative. My husband drinks Pepsi and he is a Liberal. But we both agree that Han shot first which is why we can cohabitate. :p

    My answer would have to fall under "Other": I'm a liberal and I used to drink Coke and Pepsi, but now all I drink is water, sparkling water and soymilk.

    Haha. I'm half tempted to post it, and half really annoyed by the idea. :p

    For the record, I'm closest to a Liberal (these bizarre American definitions are completely off the wall) and drink neither Pepsi nor Coke out of choice, but when forced I'll probably take Coke.

    I hate to put a dent in your theory, Jada, but I'm a conservative and I swear my allegiance to Pepsi :p


    Has there ever been a thread for "Favorite Seinfeld character?"? (I know it'd be tough to narrow down from a cast of thousands). "Favorite Seinfeld supporting character" would free up four more spots and you could combine the Seinfelds & the Costanzas.

    Jerry
    Elaine
    George
    Kramer
    Newman
    J. Peterman
    David Puddy
    Uncle Leo
    Frank Costanza
    Estelle Costanza
    Morty Seinfeld
    Helen Seinfeld
    Mickey Abbott
    Kenny Bania
    George Steinbrenner
    Jackie Chiles
    The Soup Nazi
    Lt. Bookman

    More Potter polls are definitely a good thing. I'm on very reduced time this week, so I'll probably only get the chance to update the tourny every day. But keep posting suggestions, unless they're urgent I'll wait until I get back to do it. :)

    Can you add two more options?
    --> I have a non-Ipod mp3 player
    --> I don't own an mp3 player

    Oh yeah, good idea. :)

    Edit: Perhaps instead of the non-iPod choice, it would be "I have more than one model"? And I think the last one should be "I don't have an iPod."
