Poll Results - and Another One!

I'm assuming that by now, anyone who wants to vote in my film poll has done so, so I thought I'd announce the results:

Congratulations to: thepolliwog, one4worldpeace, syrinxkat, robingrace, triplethreat310 and majkazmaj for guessing correctly! Of the films in that list, I have NOT seen "Attack of the Clones." (Although a few of you had very good reasoning behind choosing other films - there are definitely some on that list which aren't the usual sorts of movies that I watch). But no, so far I have avoided seeing any of the "first" three Star Wars movies in its entirety (although I've seen parts of some of them, but judging by the M15M parody I read in the book, "Clones" is the one of which I've seen NOTHING). Somehow I just never managed to get excited enough about them to sit through the whole trilogy!

I was secretly disappointed in some of my Harry Potter friends, though - I really expected a couple of people to guess that I hadn't seen "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - since that was the U.K. version, not the American one. But, as it turns out, I've seen both. So, um, maybe I shouldn't be disappointed in them for not guessing incorrectly? It just seemed like a perfect "trick question" set-up, though.

And, since everyone loves a poll (right?), here's another one, as requested by kvratties:

I read a book yesterday, whose premise was based on the "fact" that sisters are categorized by their families in one of two ways: as "smart" or "pretty." This might sound overly-stereotypical, except that in my experience, there's more than a grain of truth there. Certainly in my family, my sister and I were categorized. I was the "smart" one (not really fair, since I am nearly four years older than she is; of COURSE I could converse on a higher level than she could, at any given time); she was the "cute" one (not really fair, since she is nearly four years younger than I am, so of COURSE she was cuter than I was at any given time).

So . . . let's find out whether or not there's something to this.

Poll #767182 Smart Vs. Pretty

For those of you without Sisters: Even though you have no direct experience, you get to have an opinion too! Have you ever seen evidence of this dynamic happening in families you've known?

Yes! Definitely.
4(44.4%)
Yes, things like this happen, but I've usually seen children categorized in other ways, which I'll share as a comment.
0(0.0%)
No, I've never noticed this.
4(44.4%)
No, and I think it's something you made up to try and get people to vote in your poll!
0(0.0%)
I'm not from here; on my home planet, it's done in an entirely different way (and I'll explain in a comment)
1(11.1%)

Should I have included boys in this quiz? In other words, are brothers categorized in some similar way, too?

Yes! I'll explain in a comment
3(15.8%)
Yes! And I've seen brothers vs. sisters categorized too - and will explain in a comment
2(10.5%)
No, I've never seen this with boys
1(5.3%)
No. Even if it happens with boys, they shouldn't be included, since they get all the attention already!
1(5.3%)
TICKY BOX!
9(47.4%)
