What would be the options then, simply yes and no?
Yeah, why not. :)

Though, it is up to you if you want to add a sentence to accompany those answers.

I was gonna start the ice cream one on Wednesday night, using the entire list of flavours currently on Wikipedia, but then I went to bed and then yesterday our broadband was on the blink. Maybe it's an omen about how unsuccessful a poll with so many options is bound to be! How many options should I have, I wonder…

Maybe some of the more common ones like strawberry, vanilla, chocolate, mint chocolate etc., then an option that says other.

I have never thought Globox and Steo shared the exact traits after all until now.

Yeah I like those traditional ones better like lemon-flavored ice cream but not ones like pear-flavored, because while I love pears, that combination just seriously doesn't do it for me and I've tried it out once and it tasted horrible.

Also, yeah I agree, that would be a great idea imo.

When it comes to fruit, I prefer sherbet and sorbet tbh.

Now as for ice cream flavour, I love chocolate the best! So smooth, dark, silky and decadent. :D

While I like chocolate flavor too, my absolute favorite flavor would be vanilla. It's a classic, creamy, soft ice cream flavor. :D

I like strawberry flavour, even if I wouldn't consider eating an actual strawberry…

Oh yeah and I also like punch, though I would put that after vanilla.

Loved vanilla since I was younger and I still do.

I love chocolate too but as a flavour for cake. :mrgreen:

Yeah vanilla would be my second favorite flavour after chocolate. Everytime I go to a restaurant to eat dessert I always seem to want to get something with chocolate on the initial visit before exploring more of the menu any subsequent time.

I've tried a few strawberries, and I've found them to be pretty tart, and anything strawberry flavoured to be sweet in comparison, like strawberry milk and ice cream....mmmm. :mrgreen:

Here's something I wish I'd found when the JS poll was still running: https://infrequently.org/2018/09/the-de ... nd-switch/

Maybe we can have a poll about "Are humans to blame for certain animal extinctions?"..
Do you really want me to run this? It seems that this is a matter of fact, rather than opinion. Or did you mean something slightly different that I'm not picking up on?

How about a poll on Malthusianism?

Seeing the graph on the wiki page brings home to me very clearly where the idea of Soylent Green came from. :fou2:

Still, I don't think I'm familiar enough with it to come up with options; have you any suggestions?

I'm not particularly familiar with the subject either, but how about:

How to solve the overexploitation of natural resources by humans?
  • Reduce the population
  • Reduce our individual consumption
It goes without saying that reducing the population is not necessarily achieved through mass murders, think birth control for example.

Ah yes, that was the misunderstanding on which the plot of Dan Brown's Inferno hinged, as I recall! :mrgreen: All right, let's do it!

Well here I go, I am indeed in favor of maintaining the population to a sustainable level rather than forcing 15 billion people to use dreadfully inefficient and incommodious public transport, live in excruciatingly cramped housing, and other harrowing prospects such as eating quinoa for the rest of their lives.

I agree we should reduce the population, but only if it is the black one.

Seems pretty unanimous, even with a low turnout…
