Its impossible for you to add a "allow users to change votes" option to a poll, you need a moderator to do that.

Indeed it took. I don't envy you, Mike.
(I usually quote the message to look at the contents of spoiler trees.)

Edit: I look at the quoted message but I don't post anything.
I usually use quotes too, but that was mostly to see what it looked like

Since I know diddly squat about graphic art. To see my junkie interpretation, Follow the yellow spoiler road. (not really yellow)[spoiler] :) ;) :D ;D >:( :( :o 8) ??? ::) :P :-[ :-X :-\ :-* :'([/spoiler]

I decided to edit that so that the obnoxious train was eliminated. Anybody who wants to see his little thing can click the spoiler in the quote.

In the future, keep in mind that more than two spoilers is a bit rude, and your post was just too much.

Basically sums up my feelings. I'm not about to run around yelling "USA USA USA," but I prefer him dead to alive and free. It was something that needed to be done, but its not a celebratory event
I was one of those guys chanting "USA".  This is a great victory for the USA.  There hasn't been a man this hated by America since Hitler.

History is written by the victors, although he was a horrible man, consider this if you were Japanese during the bombings, what would you opinion be of Americans?
Actually, Japan did rewrite history, while American texbooks obsess over Japanese internment camps.
I disagree on the importance of the victory, and I personally think its a little barbaric to go around chanting USA.... it seems reminiscent of the scenes we show of Muslim terrorists chanting for the downfall of an enemy.

Also, the whole history is written by the victor thing is just a bad COD quote. Its not real anymore, we have too many records.

I can't stop laughing, this would be shown in a textbook to be 9 end of story. I find this interesting but more than anything funny!
Well, yeah, it is sad. On the facebook poll millions of people picked 1

The death of a person is a thing that will never make me happy.
However, I think that Osama bin Laden is better dead than free.

I would disagree.
a/bc = x
(a) / (bc) = x
This is incorrect. a/bc = a/b*c= a/b THEN *c
Basically, you added parentheses when you were not supposed to.

This is one I've seen floating around facebook recently, and I thought it had the potential of being open to interpretation. It depends on how you interpret the older division symbol, and what priority you consider the multiplication by parentheses to have. I know what I think is the correct answer. I just want to see your response.

6÷2(1+2)=?
It equals 9, because, in the order of operations, parenthesis come first, so, 2+1=3, now it's 6/2x3, so, now you go left to right, 6/2=3, 3x3=9. Sorry for stealing the show, DD.
The thing is, that some people put forth the argument that multiplication by parentheses took priority, so one would multiply the 2 by the (3) before dividing, resulting in a final answer of six.

Also, others interpreted the division symbol as applying to both the 2 and the (1+2), so it would look like:

__6__
2(1+2)


While I agree that the answer is 9 based of what I've been taught, I was curious to see the point of view of somebody else who had been taught either of the above methods for solving this.

He slips those in occasionally. Subtle fun right there.
