  • 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.

    Take a handful of candy corn and roasted peanuts mixed up and pop it into you mouth all at once.
    It tastes just like a Payday candy bar. No kidding.

    UK usage:

    "Chocolate" — generic for the brown stuff, in any format, but "would you like some chocolate?" implies a piece of a bar of the stuff.

    "Chocolates" — a box of individually-formed bite-size items, usually filled with anything from a nut to some gooey stuff, coated in chocolate.

    "Sweets" — generic for anything sugary and sold in bite-sizes, but not including chocolate or chocolates, except when used by undiscerning parents.

    "Candy" — specialist forms of sweets, often highly-decorated or made to look like something else; does not include chocolate or chocolates. An American term rarely heard in the UK.

    "Boiled sweets" — sweets of boiled sugar, flavoured and set to a glass-like consistency, favoured by dentists as a way to increase income.

    YMMV, and there are probably hundreds of local, regional, and dialect variants.
