Poll Results
I think my poll was very informative, and we can learn a lot from it. To make things more interesting, I've decided to assume that the respondents' opinions reflect the world's opinion in general. Therefore given its current number of respondents, 24, we can infer the following:

  1. Precisely 50% of the earth's population is female.
  2. Only 4.2% of the earth's population doesn't eat ice cream.
  3. There does not exist a single person anywhere who doesn't like ice cream.
  4. Everyone (who can) eats ice cream at least a few times a year.
  5. Even some people who "can't" eat ice cream eat it anyway (and who can blame them?).
  6. 91.6% of the earth's population eats ice cream in the winter as well as the summer. (Take that, store-guy!!!)
  7. Only 33.3% of the population won't eat ice cream for breakfast.
  8. I am not capable of formulating coffee questions appropriately.
  9. A lot of people don't drink coffee....lots more than the 4.2% who don't eat ice cream.
  10. Ice cream is far more popular than coffee, by 39.7%.
  11. Toffee is the most popular ice cream addition -- 16.7% had some form of it in their favorite flavor.
  12. 20.8% of the population lists a Ben and Jerry's flavor as their favorite.
  13. As to gender preference, 37.5% indicate that women like ice cream more than men do, 16.6% indicate that men like it more, and a resounding 45.8% prove that gender does not play a roll in ice cream preference!

hmmm. Suddenly, I am hungry. I have a strong craving for ice cream. I wonder why?

I'd say that's a surprisingly accurate poll given the sample size. ;)

Yep! I'm quite pleased with it.

Based on your questions, I don't think you can support your assertion # 13 since the question dealt with liking ice cream more than, equal to or less than some men or some women. Too many years of building statistical surveys.

Heh. Based on 24 responses, I'm not certain I can assert any of the above! However, my survey, my rules. *grin*

LOL, very fun entry! And yes ice cream is a year-round treat, anyone who says it's not is crazy!
I have a favor to ask. I'm a synchro skater too and I really want a livejournal but I need a code to join and I don't know anyone who has one. Would you mind giving me a code? Please email me: ELANSK8R@netscape.net
