Canine Poll: Hot Pursuit

“What are you doing?”

“Hmm? Oh, I’m trying to think of a Dorky Poll question to post to the blog, because I’m going to be away from the computer for a while.”

“Why are they always human polls?”

“Um, because the vast majority of my readers are human?”

Yeah, but why don’t I ever get to pick poll questions, huh?”

“OK, fine. What’s your question?”

    “Do left and right shoes vacuum free fall identically?” If so, everything else arrives by UPS. If not, bunnies infest the strip park one block over. Supper arrives either way.

    Does “satisfaction” count as an abstract concept?

    “interesting stuff”.

    That’s what life is about.

    I asked The Beast and he got a bit sniffy about dogs. His point is that any sensible animal doesn’t chase, it waits for the catch to come to it, and then pounces.

    Personally, I think he’s just lazy.

    Does Emmy know that it’s Bring Your Dog to Work Day?

    Do my kids count as “small creatures”?

    Happiness – because I will be adopting a second dog this evening. One that looks not unlike Queen Emmy. Only he’s a he and bigger than Emmy.

    Systematic errors. I’m counting that in the “small creature” category, though far less cute than chipmunks or squirrels.

    My dog, who insists on hiding in the doghouse until he is absolutely convinced that I’m going to take him with me and not lock him in his crate.

    There are one or two things I don’t understand about, say, general relativity. It’s possible that I’m chasing knowledge, in the “wait for it to come by, then pounce” sense. (There are also a few things I don’t understand about quantum mechanics, but at least with the relativity I have a better idea of what the questions are.)
