Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

From several different sources and then I have to weed through it to make sure it is true. Apparently, you have to REALLY dig these days to get the truth of a story.

Thanks to up-to-the-minute tracking, I don't track my package so much as stalk it.

I watch local news every morning before work. My husband watches all the "network" news--political pundits & such. He fills me in on what he dares to. They always say breaking news on stuff that is days & weeks old. My local news keeps it in perspective without all the drama.

I usually get my news just like everybody else: I tune in radio waves directly through the fillings in my teeth.

Information gained through that method is FAR more accurate than anything I see on TV or online.

I find I get the best signal 1st thing in the morning right after I have brushed. And for some reason, I can't get ANYTHING after eating Pizza.
I know... WEIRD, right?
