The survey is down at the moment because of to many requests.

For the record: I'm not a farmer, I like soup, board games and zebras (but not all at once), and my favorite Frozen character is of course Ana.

Very well done for this teacher to use the power of the internet to teach.

I would love to see the results of this survey. Plus, I'd love to hear how the students assessed the graphs.

Jeepers, that was fun.

That was cute. I had to choose between the lesser of the two evils though when it came to choosing which subject I liked best .

It's still down. In the meantime, I must say I feel some of the questions were leading. I like pizza AND soup, but liking pizza better makes me sound like a soup hater! I also live in an apartment that's part of a house.

But for the record: non-farmer, board games, school worker, science, lion (because I touched a real lion once!).

Shocking as it may seem, I don't have a favorite Frozen character.

I suppose I could pick one at random. I don't know whether the survey lets you skip questions.

(I also like both soup and pizza; but, in practice, I suppose I eat soup slightly more often, so could go on that basis.)

I am a farmer, though --

The survey requires research, thorny locust. You can't expect to just know all the answers off the top of your head. I didn't have a preference between Elsa or Anna either, so I researched the subject by watching the video below:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oTct-7VQMG8

Based on that, I decided that I prefer Anna. I also had to look up Illinois and Indiana before deciding that I liked Indiana better.

I just had soup for lunch, so that one was easy as well. On another day, perhaps I'd have answered pizza.

I'm not sure I managed to submit my answers, though. I could answer the survey but got "Too many requests" when I tried to submit.

Well, now I don't like either of them.

-- it would, of course, make more sense to watch the actual movie, if I really want to form an opinion. I've only seen bits of clips.

There's a character who's a moose. If I had to pick a favorite, it'd be him.

It says

Quote:
The battle between Anna and Elsa takes place in Grand Theft Auto 4
and it seems to me it would make a whole lot more sense there than in the movie; to the extent that it makes sense at all, anyway. Plus which I would hope Disney's current animation is better than that; both of them move very awkwardly.

I haven't seen the movie, though.

Reindeer. There's even a song. (Reindeer(s) are Better than People).

I really should have known that. What was the reindeer's name? Was it Sven?

Who has trouble picking between pizza and soup?? Priorities problems.
Anna and Elsa, however... That's a conundrum.

The world wants to know: do people prefer pizza or soup?

No, you can't skip questions.

So I had to pick between a store I don't like, and one I've never been in. I picked the one I'd never been in.

I've never seen Frozen, so I just picked Elsa because she's the only one I had heard of.
