Poll III

This is the final poll in a three part series. Feel free to participate even if you did not participate in either of the previous two. You may elect to make as many or as few selections as you like. Expounding on your selections would be greatly appreciated, but is not required.

After this poll has closed, I’ll evaluate the responses and post a new thread explaining what the poll was about and announcing the results. It’ll likely take a long time to tabulate everything, and I won’t want to do it in one sitting I’m sure. So it may be a couple weeks or more before I can finish.

(Note to the posters who posted after Poll II closed: I have included your responses.)

Thanks for participating. :slight_smile:

or

"Something unknown is doing we don’t know what." (Eddington)

    Bonus Question: Which is more important —
    how** or why? IMO, motive matters far less often in real life than it does in murder mysteries.

  1. “Klaatu barada nikto” or "May the Force be with you"
    Outside the context of the film, Kbn is meaningless.

  2. **Slim Elvis ** or Fat Elvis

  3. A Whiter Shade of Pale or The Dark Side of the Moon

  4. **Don’t Tread On Me ** or One Nation Under God
    The Don’t Tread On Me flag is still a valid US flag, from before the “Betsy.” ONUG is mere chaff.

Kant never learned brevity.
13. **Twenty minutes of bagpipes ** or Two minutes of stomach cramps

  1. Judo or Karate

  2. Bing Crosby or Patsy Cline

  3. **Mr. Burns ** or Mr. Spacely
    Spacely was a grouch. Mr. Burns is eeevil, and he likes it.

  5. Rice or Pasta
    Hard to choose.

  6. **Lettuce tomato and mayonnaise ** or Chili mustard and slaw

  1. “Klaatu barada nikto” or “May the Force be with you” - You just can’t mess with the Force :slight_smile: in all of it’s anecdotes and uses…

  2. Slim Elvis or Fat Elvis - because he was in his purest form.

  3. A Whiter Shade of Pale or The Dark Side of the Moon - the song and the literal translate so perfectly into an illusion of the unkown and those things that have yet to be discovered.

  4. Don’t Tread On Me or One Nation Under God - I’m a pragmatist.

  5. "Waiter, there’s a fly in my soup!" or “Do you have Prince Albert in a can?” - the latter is just plain wrong.

  6. Rule Britannia or Pomp and Circumstance - I like Othello.

  7. Bill Clinton or Jimmy Carter - don’t hang me.

  8. Oxford or Cambridge - Repetitio est mater studiorum

  9. The Iliad or The Odyssey - I like goats.

  10. “A thing must have an identity before it can exist” or “A thing must exist before it can have an identity” - conjecture.

  11. Edgar Alan Poe or Ralph Waldo Emerson - I don’t like the dark.

  12. “Even the inner and sensible intuition of our mind (as object of consciousness) which is represented as being determined by the succession of different states in time, is not the self proper, as it exists in itself — that is, is not the transcendental subject — but only an appearance that has been given to the sensibility of this, to us unknown, being.” (Kant)

  9. The Iliad or The Odyssey. The Odyssey

  10. “A thing must have an identity before it can exist” or “A thing must exist before it can have an identity” I’m an existentialist. Existentence is what it’s all about. Even art that is concieved before it exists dosen’t have and identity till it exists.

  11. Edgar Alan Poe or Ralph Waldo Emerson. Emerson

  12. “Even the inner and sensible intuition of our mind (as object of consciousness) which is represented as being determined by the succession of different states in time, is not the self proper, as it exists in itself — that is, is not the transcendental subject — but only an appearance that has been given to the sensibility of this, to us unknown, being.” (Kant)
