  • 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 celebrate the Gregorian first, but I enjoy the Chinese New Year celebrations more and try to drop by the local Chinatown for the dragons.

  • Winter solstice (Score:5, Insightful)

    The winter solstice (December 21/22) makes the most sense to me. It's only dependent on the Earth's position on its orbit and its tilt, so it should be very predictable and stable, and is easily observable from having the shortest day of the year on that day. (Of course, in the southern hemisphere they get the longest day of the year.)

    Off the poll options, the southward equinox comes closest, being a quarter of an orbit off.

It's not an optical illusion, it just looks like one. -- Phil White
