Elliquian Demographics; or, The Results of the -Are You?- Polls
« on: February 07, 2010, 07:12:23 PM »
Hi, everybody.  If you don't know me, I'm Spel.  During 2009 I created a bunch of polls in Off Topic -- a total of 54 -- that all revolved around the form Are you X?.  Some were pretty prosaic, such as my first question, Are you right-handed?; others were further out there, such as my second question, ]Are you a brief Albanian folk song?.

Well, ladies and gentlemen, maidens and monsters, the results are now in.  Below you'll find details regarding the demographics of our wonderful community.  For the sake of convenience I've rounded off the percentages.  Results are guaranteed to be valid within 121 percentage points!*

81% of Elliquians are right-handed.
19% of Elliquians are brief Albanian folk songs.
47% of Elliquians are ninjas -- or, at least, will admit to it.

This is very cool, and a funny read! We need ven diagrams of this though; There's some overlap between pirates and ninjas! We must find these crossbreeds and study them in the name of...

Screw the Census. This is possibly the most epic thing in the history of awesomeness.

Thanks very much for the thoughtful words, everybody!  It did take a little effort, but I feel that it was worth it.  I'm really glad that you liked it!

An outstanding idea, but I'm afraid that I just don't have the data necessary to create Venn diagrams.  I will, however, nobly volunteer to observe the pirates and the ninjas breeding.  If anyone has any tissues, please pass them this way.

Thanks again!

So, regarding the age demographic...
Does this mean that 3% of Elliquians WERE over 65 and died between polls?

Interesting social experiment there, I'm also surprized by noone being over 65.

Well, you do have to remember that not every member of Elliquiy answers the polls.

Hmm...  being left-handed, I find myself somewhat of a rarity here on E.  Does that mean my value goes up?

Thanks for the sweet words, Reign!  Please know that I really appreciated your continual encouragement while the polls were running.  I'm very glad that you had fun.  Thanks to everyone else, too, for the thoughtful replies!

Yes!  Your value is now 23.  Congratulations!  I knew that you could do it; I've always had faith in you.  By the way, nice to meet you!

Thanks again, everyone!
