If we were to do a true survey, it would include origin and destination countries. Maybe some people just travel more? Or in the case of Singapore, it's just a simple drive out of the city to get into another country.

New Poll - Gambling
This week's poll was inspired by a work-related conference I recently attended at Las Vegas. It took 25 minutes to walk from the Bellagio (my hotel) to the Venetian (conference site).

New Poll - Music
This week's poll is about your favorite musical genre (prompted by a similar suggestion by jacob66). We haven't done this poll for over a decade, so maybe tastes have changed. The list of genres was taken from this Wikipedia article, so don't get made at me that your favorite didn't make it onto the list. If your favorite is considered a subgenre within a listed choice, just pick that choice (such as indie is under rock).

New Poll - Author Morality
This week's poll, suggested by F_J, is very similar to one we did a couple of months ago. Instead of scandals or controversies though, the focus is on morality or the agenda the author is trying to push.

Could one argue that the mass media is already creating a lower form of collective consciousness?
