  • 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.

    Well, no, not usually. Most computer floating point is in binary, including the exponent. It displays as #.###E##, but internally it's 1.nnnnnnn x 2^e. Things that can be exactly represented as a decimal floating point can often not be exact in a binary floating point representation.

    If you need to have accurate base-10 exponents, you can certainly store it that way. Similarly, if you need highly accurate conversions of mm to cm, you could store everything with the base unit of mm. You can also store values as rational numbers (i.e. fractions). So, 1/3 would be equal to ... 1/3.

One good reason why computers can do more work than people is that they never have to stop and answer the phone.
