Samuel’s Blog Weekly Poll

January 19th, 2007 at 11:55pm

I have decided that, just for the fun of it, I will have a weekly poll. I will start it on Sunday morning in the wee hours as I am generally up at that time to send movie trivia questions to John Kerr’s “Flicks and Things” sgement with Dale Sinden & Simon Foster, as a part of “The Questionable Trio”.

The weekly poll will run roughly from the beginning on Sunday to the end of Saturday, give or take a few minutes, and the latest poll will always be available on the main page’s sidebar under the Samuel’s Persiflage entry. I will also have a post each week detailing the results from the previous week’s poll, as well as revealing the new week’s poll.

Just as a teaser while I iron out a couple issues and get ready for the first week long poll, here is a sample poll to kick things off.

Should Pluto be reinstated as a planet?

Total Votes: 14
Started: January 19, 2007

For those of you who are wondering, the polls run on the Democracy plugin for WordPress, as it seems to be about the only poll system which doesn’t either mess up the formatting of the blog, or refuse to connect to the MySQL database when I want it to. I decided to use a polling system that I can host on this website rather than use an external system as it is nicer to have proper control over the polling system…and a WordPress plugin fits in with the blog perfectly (well not the other one I tried).

    I voted “No” because I don’t think Pluto cuts the mustard as a planet in the 21st.Century.

    It was entitled to be classified as a planet from 1930 until the late 20th Century, but with new discoveries and technology in the fields of Astronomy, Astronautics, etc., it’s hard to justify Pluto hanging on to the title of Planet.
    It’s had it’s 76 years ‘in the sun’ (more or less).

    I voted yes, mainly because I feel sorry for the little fella, and it would just make a lot more sense to not have to reprint every single astronomy textbook and learning utility on this planet…then again, it might be too late for the latter.
