Take a silly poll! It's fun! It's free!

First of all, happy belated birthday to syredronning. I hope you had a great day, and may you live long and prosper!


I'm gearing up to work on a future piece for Pop Thought, which led me to make the following poll:

Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future (1987)?

You've already lost me.

I vaguely recall a series by that name. Maybe. I've slept since the '80s.

They had televisions way back in the '80s?
1(2.8%)

Of course! I still train daily with my interactive "Raid on Volcania" video.

None of the above, but thanks for the thought.

In honor of syredronning, a quote for the day:

Logic is a little bird tweeting in meadow; logic is a wreath of pretty flowers which smell bad.
