New Poll - Fantasy Trio
This week's poll was my own, but it was prompted by something that jacob66 suggested. We actually did a similar poll back in 2013, but isekai has gained a lot of popularity since then, so we'll see how this poll goes. I did reduce the choices to the classic trio though

New Poll - Trolley Problem
This classic problem was proposed as a poll by jacob66. I had to shorten the text a bit because the database text field is too short...

New Poll - 5W1H
This is a rather odd question asked by vivant. Of the 6 basic questions, which one annoys you the most? Maybe it's about you asking that question to the world. Or perhaps it's your reaction to getting asked that question by your child?

New Poll - Single Government
I took a suggestion from jacob66 and simplified it. Should there be a single government that controls all of humanity? You could look at examples in science fiction such as the Hegemony in the Ender's Game universe (Enderverse) by Orson Scott Card, or the Atreides Empire in Dune by Frank Herbert. Or instead of spanning the universe, or the Federation in Star Trek. Maybe it could be just a global government that's united against an alien threat. Can't think of any examples off the top of my head that's outside the realm of science fiction...
