Not a Scientific Poll
« on: September 18, 2010, 02:43:21 am »

Please self-identify your political standing where L is Liberal, N is Not Aligned and C is Conservative. Vote in the context of American politics. An 'independant' position is deliberately ommited. Not Aligned is to be considered political apathy.

Nobody is allowed to discuss anything other than trite memes and nonsense until page five, at which point we will discuss the results of the poll. This especially prohibits debating what constitutes liberalism and conservatism and how your country is so far to one side that it makes other people on your side basically moderates or how everyone who answers L or C is a filthy hippie/greedy redneck.

And now to start idle discussion, has anyone actually eaten a Double Down yet? I must confess it looks healthier than some of the coffee-flavored milkshakes Starbucks serves, if only because you know its unhealthy.

 I appreciate you killing time 'till the heated debates go away for some sense. Good on ya.

 I'm awaiting coffee-flavored soda that isn't milky.

I prefer coffee-flavored coffee that doesn't taste like burned paper.

I really have to recommend a drip percolator with a built-in bean grinder. Cuisinart makes a good model, although two of them have broken on me in three years. If I had kept my warranty card I'd be in good shape though. The damn thing keeps turning off after about one minute of brewing so I have to keep it right next to my computer desk to constantly hit the button every time it beeps.

Plus side? Hot coffee on hand and I don't have to drip it all over the carpet between the kitchen and my desk.

@Duke: Shhhhh! That might be what I'm doing but we're not discussing it for fear of it continuing in this thread!

I got through most of one, before I decided the point was made.  There was nothing really special about it, just plain old KFC chicken, and I hate KFC's chicken.  Tasted like all their other chicken pieces, but with extra sauce crap, and I had to hold it with a napkin.

I actually tried to find one once out of morbid curiousity, but Canadian KFCs (or at least Nova Scotia KFCs) apparently don't actually sell them.

I'll go ahead and make the obvious 'because only Americans are fat enough to eat them' statement so nobody who believes in it has the chance to.

Who actually drinks tea here? I went through a fad where I drank Russian-style tea. And I'll go ahead and make the obvious 'you mean vodka' statement...

I drink tea every so often. Baby tea, though, with milk and two sugars.

I drink tea all the time, sometimes up to 4 cups a day. It's possible I have a problem. If so, I just took the first step, and in terms of quitting that'll tide me over for the next 80 years.

That is not baby tea! Tea is tea! Unless you're intentionally making it weak, obviously.

Nah, it's fairly strong, but my family call it baby tea. Maybe we're both just wimps ;D

I drink fairly light tea, but from a half-liter cup. Aside from the occasional minor caffeine overdose, it's simply great.
