Stupid poll time, or, A little incompatibility is the spice of life.

Remember that bit in High Fidelity where Barry makes up a questionnaire to give to potential girlfriends in order to determine their compatibility? I think he was on to something, but I also think that the problem can be addressed with just two simple questions.

Poll #459805 Now testing Crackpot Theory #4874

Betty or Wilma?

Betty.
17(42.5%)
Wilma.
9(22.5%)
Both.
5(12.5%)
Neither.
7(17.5%)
I don't know what you're talking about.
2(5.0%)

Krystof Kieslowski's Trois Couleurs: Blue, White or Red?

Blue.
12(30.8%)
White.
2(5.1%)
Red.
11(28.2%)
I love them all.
2(5.1%)
I don't know what you're talking about.
12(30.8%)

Question 1: Betty or Wilma?

Both: You are a lech.
Neither: You don't go for married women. Or maybe you're female and just not terribly gay.
I don't know what you're talking about: You live under a rock.

Betty is the one-night stand. Betty is the one you don't want to ask too many questions. Betty is a Molotov cocktail. Carpe diem, Betty.

Whereas Wilma is all the satisfaction you'll ever need…provided you're willing to make a commitment.

Question 2: Trois Couleurs: Blue, White or Red?

"Blue" for the melancholic egotist, "White" for the farce-loving cynic, "Red" for the incurable closet romantic.

I love them all: You are a greedy bastard. You probably wanted both Betty and Wilma, too. For that matter, you probably want Juliette Binoche, Julie Delpy and Irene Jacob.

Random interesting fact: Irene Jacob, the lead actress in "Red," has a brother who is an atmospheric chemistry professor at Harvard. (Yes, I've met him. He's a good speaker.)

I don't know what you're talking about: Oh, just go back to watching the Flintstones, you uncultured baboon. (I kid, I kid!)
