Conor McGregor tried that recently I think, and it didn't work out too well for him. :mrgreen:

As for suggestions, here's a nice simple one: are you left-handed, right-handed or ambidextrous?

I think I'll go with that simple one for now and probably do R4Y's social media one next week. I'd need good options for that one to do it and I can't think of any right now, staying up for that long has me still tired today. :mrgreen:

I think in general about 10% of the population is supposed to be left-handed, so it'll be interesting to see how RPC compares. So far, we've nobody…

Yeah, I was a bit surprised to see 5 votes, all of which were right handed when I checked the thread earlier. I actually have uncles that write with their left hand, but do other things with their right hand, such as using right handed golf clubs and playing darts with their right hand.

My dominant hand is my right hand, so I'm right handed. Though there are some things I do better with my left hand, such as turning the wheel while driving.

Well same here, I wouldn't even trust using my left hand to stir tea in case the cup ends up on the floor. :mrgreen:

Well here are the results (albeit a week late :oops2:).

I expected at least one person to be left-handed, but I guess everyone here is a right-hand man. :mrgreen:

I basically just done R4Y's poll with options equivalent to yes, no, and maybe. I could have added way more, but if there were too many, it would just be confusing.

On the plus side, it means RaymanPC is immune from beta decay! :fou:
Because, you know, the weak interaction only acts on left-handed… Ah nevermind…

I personally voted "It's good in some ways, but a lot of it is fake news", because on here for instance and on Discord in the Rayman Together server for example, I met some truly wonderful people who I can connect with on a deeper level and most of these people are friends that I feel closer friends with than some of the friends I made in real life and the friends I made there and here too, feel like friends I couldn't ever have in real life.

And while reading this, you may rightfully feel like I'm just getting sappy, but it's true even if I did get a bit perhaps excessively sentimental.

Also, why I think a lot of it is fake news is because on Facebook for instance, there are a ton of hoaxes that spread around every year.

I’d say social media is good in some ways but it can also be a dangerous place. Same goes for the Internet In general there are some real wackos out there in the web.

I was originally going to put that it can be dangerous as an option, but there were way too many choices that practically all meant the same thing. I also went with the middle option, because while all 3 options are true in a way, it's all up to how a person uses social media as to whether it causes issues for them. People that spend all day every day on it can end up with problems affecting their mental health, such as anxiety or depression. It's also true that it can be a good way to make friends, but since not everyone uses it in the same way, I felt that the middle option made the most sense.

Suggestion for next poll:
How many different scripts can you read (e.g. Latin, Cyrillic, Chinese characters, etc.)?

I'll look into this one, it's been a while since I've actually updated this to be fair.
