  • Don't complain about lack of options. You've got to pick a few when you do multiple choice. Those are the breaks.
  • Feel free to suggest poll ideas if you're feeling creative. I'd strongly suggest reading the past polls first.
  • This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you're using these numbers to do anything important, you're insane.

    I don't think there's any major city that's less than 100 miles of each other.
    and of course, I'm in city A while everyone i get along with is in city B.
    So, 100+ miles for me!

    The same town = same suburb
    Less than 10 miles = adjacent suburb or at at most, the near edge one suburb over
    10-20 miles = non-adjacent suburb but within the same general area
    20-50 miles= different section of the same metro area (i.e. San Jose to San Francisco)
    50-100 miles= Opposite ends of the metro area or another metro area so close the boundary between the two is not entirely clear. (San Francisco to Sacramento)
    Over 100 miles= Actually leaving town

    Options not listed:

    100-200 miles= driving and likely a day trip
    200-400 miles= probably driving but not a day trip
    Over 400 miles= Either an airplane or a multiple days in transit

    Christmas was celebrated first in Rome as a replacement for Sol Invictus, and this in turn was a new fade in 270 AD of soldiers returning from wars against the Parthian Empire and later the Sassanides, where they came in contact with Zoroastrism and the Mithras cult. The christmas tree is a late addition to the Christmas, appearing no earlier than around the 14th century in southern Germany.
