My friend does that at uChicago.  Why is it always Asian chicks who offer something as stupid as free hugs?

free hugs are serious business, you couldn't leave it to an amateur from northern Europe ... it requires experience, a sense of style, but most of all nice firm ones.

My point exactly; when one thinks "Asian girls," the associative thought is rarely "buxom chest."

Yes.  They usually travel in pairs.  And sometimes with Lollys.

They each have one vote, and must MESSAGE me their vote (not post in forum), or else their vote will not be counted (no second tries). Voting ends May 1 11:59 PM Pacific. Remember, list members and past winners, you are voting for a winner.

AlCzervik

jonden, too

ivandh

Hessianwarrior, since I nominated him in one of the rounds or maybe that was last month.

(by the way I for one love the new voting format, not of this particular month but the general idea of mixing it up.)

Ivandh is that a Czeh Republic flag?

Joseph-S

ProKnight,

I think it would be more interesting if you'd keep us posted on the voting tallys thoughout the process rather than wait to the very end to say who won.

Do you not trust me? Wink

I think by posting the tallies, people who have not voted may become influenced to vote a certain way.

If you can improve on your idea, I can put it to use.

Maybe you could give out the score without the names?  Just something for us to follow along while waiting.  (random thoughts)

 Will it be Charlotte or kco, only the ProKnight knows.

DalaiLuke

The solution to the question of transparency is to post the votes post-mortem ... que up a requiem for the occasion ... I cannot think of a more apropos conclusion :)

woodshover or Woodshover?  I guess this another peril of changing your username.

This is neither "panem" nor "circenses"; the electorate is eager and idle.

AlCzervik

PK, as long as this is taking, you should get started on CPOTM May right away.

That wouldn't be very fair for April, now would it?

Lol Brilliant, I must learn how to do that photo editing thing 

HessianWarrior

That picture alone should earn Joesph-S a place in the CPOTM Hall of Fame.

Twobit

Yeah, right behind the visitor's head...
