It's time for a 24 hour "Less Is More" contest: create the best poll of five-words-or-less. At stake: a $25 Amazon gift card or an SOH-wide feature and "Follow this person!" recommendation - your choice. I'll judge based upon the q score and my whim.

I did "Do you like elaborate houses?" It seems that the younger you are, the more elaborate the house preference is.

I lost about 4 or 5 followers, to this contest! I guess I posted a few too many frivolous polls. Oops!! LOL

So, I can't stand it when a poll has two answers that mean the same thing (yes, Tony, I'm calling you out for this one) because I am weird and it drives me crazy. Also because, since I have to answer the polls because I can't stand to see them
