Here it is.

It's artificial intelligence built, based on other people stance. The only trick is you have to select a state of residency, but for "foreigners" like me, I suggest you select the closest one to your real place of living. So Aussies would probably choose Hawaii, and UKers Alaska. Or just pick one randomly. (For scientific method's sake, I should try and see if the state one select changes the results.)

Anyway, I ended up 50% Kerry, 50% Nader, 1% Bush. Now, as there is obviously a 1% error margin (with a total of 101%), and that Bush got 1%, the logical conclusion is that voting Bush is an error. [evil] [Big Grin]

Oh no! I support Bush! But only in a 9% kind of way. Phew.

The other two had a 46%/46% split.

I do take exception to the fact that you have suggested lumping us (UK) as the equivalent of Alaska, a traditional Bush safe state. Guess there's no alternative though.

BTW, My home town is on a latitude just south of Calgary just north of Regina and no where near as cold.

Have a good one.

csk, I'll bet your Bush rating comes from that Christian stuff!

for me

13% Bush 87% Kerry 0% Nader, which is probably a fairly accurate depiction of how I feel.

Probably. Validates Rhonwyyn's point(s) in the other thread, anyway.

With marks like that you should spice up your posts with random bold/italics/caps and obscure links to right wing nut job web sites.

Umm, UKers wouldn't necessarily choose Alaska 'cause they'd have to cross either North America or Eurasia to get to it! [Wink] If I remember correctly from Quiz Bowl days, Maine's the furthest East of the United States.

Isn't Alaska closer to northern European countries through the pole? I could have that wrong, though.

Oh well, heading to bed soon. If Kerry wins, good. If Bush gets another go... how bad can it be? [shake head] (He can't bring Armageddon to the world, can he? [Roll Eyes] )

Hold on, just had a thought. Nostradamus predicted three anti-christs. Popular belief has it that Napoleon and Hitler where the first two. There has been divided thoughts on whether Pohl Pot or Sadam Hussain is the third. Could not the third one be a lot closer to home (or at least your home)?

Now there is a scary thought. Hold does this mean I will now get a visit from the SS. As Cal said in another thread I suggest that you are careful about what you post in the current climate of hysteria.
