  • March Poll Poll-Who's got idea's?

    Ideas for the upcoming March Monthly Poll?

    List ideas please. I'll use 'em if I like 'em.

    Below, I'm listing ideas from other members previously posted. I'm numbering them 1-8. Please vote for your favorite suggestion in the poll. :P

    Some ideas already put forth:

    (1) Tales From Tanelorn: "Would you want to make contact with Extraterrestrial Intelligence?" could they be dangerous!?"

    (2) Dobbie: " - What happens to Stormbringers victims souls ?
    (3) - Which sub charecter do you hate the most ?
    (4)- Which Character/book would make a better film than Elric ?
    (5) - If they made a range of cuddly toys based on Moorcock charecters wh)ich would you take to bed at night ?
    (6)- If you could buy a real stormbirnger eg it ate peoples souls and feed lifeforce back to the weilder etc would you buy one ?

    (7)Von Weiner: "How do you choose your books?

    -By Author

    -By Title

    -By Subject

    -Advice of a friend

    -Tea leaf readings

    -On the advice of Oprah "

    (8 Grey Mouser: "Mike was asked once what role he would possibly choose if he had a cameo in the Elric films. My memory could be hazy, but I recall Mike himself suggested Smiorgan Baldhead. I wondered if we should have a poll to see if members thought they'd like to see Mike in the films, and if so, what part they could see him portraying."

    If I've missed anyone else's suggestions, I apologize. Please list them below...Happy polling!! :D

    I did not vote for myself! Just wanted to say that. I picked #2.

    (vote for 7, all.... wink, wink, nudge, nudge) :lol:
    When they had advanced together to meet on common
    ground, then there was the clash of shields, of spears
    and the fury of men cased in bronze; bossed shields met
    each other and the din rose loud. Then there were
    mingled the groaning and the crowing of men killed and
    killing, and the ground ran with blood.

      Jerico posted in another forum that he received the following in an email:

      "You know you're a Republican if you believe that:

      1) Being a drug addict is a moral failing and a crime, unless you
      are millionaire conservative radio jock, which makes it an
      "illness" and needs our prayers for your "recovery."

      2) Those privileged from birth achieve success all on their own.

      3) The US should quit the UN and our highest national priority is enforcing UN resolutions against Iraq.

      4) Government should stay out of people's lives but punish private sex with the "wrong" gender.

      5) Pollution is okay as long as it makes a profit.

      6) Prayer in schools is okay as long as you don't pray to Allah or Buddha.

      7) "Standing Tall for America" means firing your workers and moving their jobs to India.

      8 ) A woman cannot be trusted with decisions about her own body, but multinational corporations can make decisions affecting all mankind with no regulation whatsoever.

      9) You love Jesus, Jesus loves you, and shares your hatred of AIDS victims, homosexuals and Hillary.

      10) You hate the ACLU for representing convicted felons, but it was okay to bail out Oliver North.

      11) The best way to encourage military morale is to praise troops overseas while cutting VA benefits.

      12) Group sex and drugs are sins that can only be purged by running for governor of California.

      13) It is wise to keep condoms out of schools: we know if teens
      have no condoms they won't have sex.

      14) The way to fight terrorism is to alienate our allies and then
      demand their cooperation and money.

      15) Government medicine is wrong; HMOs and insurance companies have your best interests at heart.

      16) Health care to Iraqis is sound policy but health care for Americans is socialism.

      17) Tobacco's link to cancer and global warming are "junk science" but Creationism should be taught.

      18 ) War with no exit strategy was wrong in Vietnam but right in Iraq.

      19) Saddam was a good guy when Reagan armed him, a bad guy when Bush One made war on him, good when Cheney did business with him and bad when Bush needed a "we can't find Bin Laden" diversion.

      20) Government should restrict itself to powers named in the Constitution, which includes banning gay marriages and censoring the Internet.

      21) The public has a right to know about the adulterous affairs of Democrats, while those of Republicans are a "private matter."

      22) The public has a right to know about Hillary's cattle trades but that Bush was right to censor those 28 pages from the Congressional 9/11 report because it just can't handle the truth.

      23) You support state rights, which means Ashcroft telling states what locally passed voter initiatives he will allow them to have.

      24) What Clinton did in the 1960s is of vital national interest but what Bush did much later is "stale news" and "irrelevant."

      25) Trade with Cuba is wrong because it is communist, but trading with China and Vietnam is dandy."

      :idea: Any of these might be good topics for a poll or new thread listings... :?:
