Although it's good in its own right, ATYCLB just does not stand up to what's left.
I still can't believe Boy has gone!  :(

I think we're seeing a demographic thing.

When the poll opens, the older audience is already awake and correctly voting for atyclb.

Then about Noon or so the teenagers wake up and cast their votes for War.

About 7 or 8 we'll see a resurgence of atyclb voters as the older fans who are blocked at work log in at home.

Finally about 3am we'll get the younger audience in again voting for war as they come home from wherever they've been.

Younger voter, voted ATYCLB (although in my mind there's little difference), and it turns out that it's now 14-12 (thus if I'd voted the other way, it'd be 13-13). This may prove interesting.

I've been ordering too much stuff off Amazon lately, so I didn't get it. I also found "Groundbreaking Coldplay: Inside The Greatest Band Eva" by Bono In Bonolands to be way too pricey for my liking.

It is really interesting to me how both the votes change over time (as Junior previously noted), but also how from 1 day to the next it varies so strongly.  Yesterday Pop was fighting for its life, but today it seems safe.

However, JT and AB?  I'll go get my baseball bat and join the rest of the villagers.

Oh, and I voted Pop (ducks and hides).

How many more times do I have to vote for Pop to get it removed from this list?   :P
