New Poll - Waking Up
Masae gave the idea for this poll, but I changed it around a bit. When do you normally wake up? I have friends that work graveyard shifts (like night nurses), so their sleeping schedule rotates like half the week. Must be tough...

New Poll - Race/Origin
The US census is going on right now, so energizerbunny suggested we do this question. Our poll format doesn't allow for the selection of multiple answers though, so mixed race is a separate option (but if you're half Chinese, half Korean, then you're still full Asian, so we're not counting that as mixed for the purpose of this poll). And we're also not able to do follow-up questions (like expanding on the types of Hispanic, Latino, or Spanish origins; or which specific Asian). Feel free to comment below if you're comfortable.

New Poll - Not Having
This week's poll by jacob66 is a bit more philosophical in nature. I'm not sure how to expound upon it more besides just retyping the question. Maybe you should go read Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes.
