I still don't see anyone addressing the fact that every single option on the poll was hilarious.

Aliens?

HILARIOUS . . . to YOU . . . and evidently to a list of others who . . . seem to have some significant trouble in relating to the poll in a constructive, sensible, collaborative way.

I have a decent sense of humor and I found the poll items well within reasonable limits and not at all designed to be absurd or humorous.

These times are absurd times in a list of ways. Realistic poll items will reflect the contradictory absurdities of our era.

COULD TWITTER DATA REPLACE OPINION POLLS? [STUDY]

mashable.com...





A new study from Carnegie Mellon University shows that analyzing data from Twitter yields the same results as conducting a public opinion poll.

We're willing to bet it probably costs less, takes less time and annoys fewer people, as well.

A CMU team from the computer science department looked at sentiments expressed in a billion Twitter messages between 2008 and 2009. The researchers then use simple text analysis methods to filter out updates about the economy and politics and determine if the overall sentiment of the update was positive or negative. The CMU team found that people's attitudes on consumer confidence and presidential job approval were similar to the results generated by well-reputed, telephone-conducted public opinion polls, such as those conducted by Reuters, Gallup and pollster.com.

Its all that's been on the news for months.


I'd go one step further and ask how is there anybody on the planet that hadn't heard of this incident previously ?

Or better still, what planet have they been living on ? Do these people just walk around in a constant state of ignorance, or are they just absolutely consumed in their materialistic bubble that they have created ?

I just hope these people are not breeding and contributing new members to the club of ignorance. If they are, then the 20+% will only get higher in the future, and these incidences will be even easier to get away with.

It may be more obvious then I originally thought. But, it's just a fun thing for the forum and we do get to see a general trend.

The same reason that Obama has been elected twice. Low-information voters.

Well, you gotta remember, 99% of people are retarded, so that means 73% of people did better than expected. That's a positive result!

Because Bush was such a prime example for smartness, right? : )

It just goes to show 26% of U.S. poll respondents haven't watched CNN for the last 2 months. 24 hours a day. 7 days a week.

What I find even more disturbing is that the "would-be" Percentile of votes for all countries SHOULD have stayed at about 2%. But the united states votes alone boosted that to 17%!!! that's insanity!

My fiance, who isn't part of this site (and we don't have TV) has heard of this incident, even before I mentioned it to her!

It blows my mind how every single day on this site there is a topic on the front page about the missing flight, many times has it been the highest on the Most-Active-Topics list, and yet the highest number of votes in the United States is that they haven't even heard of it?

There is no excuse...

You're telling me.

I'm from the US with a public school education from back-of-beyond Kansas and I knew what the flight was.

I'm not sure how so many of my countrymen didn't, so I'm calling shenanigans, either a high number of "joke" votes or a possible glitch causing multiple votes.

What percentage of those people vote? It goes a long way to explain politics in the United States.

I have a poll for you, KosmicJ . . . about some of the responses on this thread . . .

Do you believe more that some folks . . .

1. Simply do not understand the issue of a sample above several hundred more or less canceling out wildly irregular responses

&/or

2. Simply do not bother to think through the more complicated issues related to such a poll and surprising results

Due to

(A) inability to wrap their understanding around such complexities &/or
(B) laziness
(C) don't wish to bother due to higher priorities

&/or

3. Are so OUT OF TOUCH with; and/or unempathetic with the

OUT-OF-TOUCH--WILLFULLY CLUELESS 'drones' in our culture . . . the masses of "Walter Mitty's" . . . with as much narrow tunnel vision shutting out the frightful things as much as possible . . .

&/OR

4. Their own social network is so devoid of such OUT-OF-TOUCH beleagured souls that they can't imagine that they truly exist in such low information darkness

&/OR

5. ????

It seems to me that your perspective is guilty of a

HUGE FALLACY . . .

ASSUMING that most to all other ATSers

have YOUR perspective and habits.

I think there's a potentially other accurate label for that.

Or put another way . . .

I'm an information hog--been so all my life. During my Univ and PhD study years, I had to take in great quantities of information, filter it rapidly; summarize, combine, annotate, comment on, synthesize etc. thousands of pages in relatively short time periods.

I can usually--unless I'm tired--scan the MOST RECENT listing quickly and notice most anything that's changed since the last time and certainly anything in my interest areas or of any major import.

HOWEVER,

IF I WANTED TO, I could easily scan the RECENT listing for ONLY those topics I was interested in and NOT AT ALL LET THE OTHER TOPICS REGISTER in my longer term memory or conscious awareness.

I think most 'modern' folks awash in too much information can do that.

It's a SURVIVAL SKILL, actually.

I would like to believe this is mass sarcasm. I don't even own a television, but i am still exposed to the glass teat on occasion, and this is all the news was talking about for way too long. I did, however, recently have a conversation at a bar with a guy who was trying to get a tan with a hair dryer. Idiocracy is upon us.
