It's great that after all the hubbub, the majority of voters "don't care."

Not the case. The majority do care, and have voted one of the first two options. While "Don't care" may be winning among the three, it is significantly below 50% and thus not the majority of voters.

Stupid math... :-[
I understand what I just posted is probably only tangentially related to the main topic.

Why did Steve think it was a good idea to have the forum vote on this?

I suspect it was just to mess with us  :-\.

A vote for Don't Care is a Vote for Jay.

Too funny! Can we take a step back and see what this tells us? For a certainty, many a skeptic must be an over-the-top analytic. (But that's a good thing.) I manage inventions for a living; nice to see that there is a small place in normal society for folks like us.

It's a gesture of goodwill to let the little people vote on insignifcant issues.  While the authoritorians sit in their ivory tower and decide the big issues, like what order to reveal the answers to Fact or Fiction.

Whoever wins the science or fiction that week should decide when to say the name...

If there is more than one winner they should look at the previous week's result etc.

Also, Rebecca can't do the Jay-thing. It's like a karaoke version of Grease Lightning. Funny but not the same... Still, I'd marry her.
