I don't want happiness by halves, nor is half of sorrow what I want. Yet there's a pillow I would share, where gently pressed against a cheek like a helpless star, a falling star, a ring glimmers on the finger of a hand.

Finally this is a good idea for the use of polls. I believe you will get many more responses when anonymity is peserved rather than asking people to repsond to the thread with all sorts of facts and figures about themselves. And it makes an interesting read to see the demographics of the people who use this site. Keep them coming

It won't let me insert a poll, but I thought a good one would be to find out how long people have been using BGG and maybe another poll would be to see how often they use it.

I wonder how many people had to use calculator for the height question. Even here in metric Canada, everyday people use feet and pounds for height and weight.

It would be cool to add a second height question, but just for the 151 - 210 range, and break it up into smaller intervals, so we can see the famous normally distributed "bell curve" of this phenotypic trait (OK, I'm a bio geek too! )...

I know what a post-doc is, and it ain't a level of _education_. Is post-doctoral education when you realise your PhD in myrmecology is useless and you enroll in nursing school to finally get marketable skills?
