We couldn't believe how some networks and newspapers would just blindly publish the results of an online survey. Didn't they ask for the methodology? Question the validity? Interview other statisticians? Apparently they did none of these things.

So we did the most logical thing: set up our own online polling company.

It's called "Decepticus Fantasia" and we like to describe it as "established." As in, "established 30 minutes ago." Like it? The company's motto is "our surveys aren't just credible, they're INcredible."

Our first online poll will be on a popular topic, the MRT 3. We invite everyone to take our impartial, scientific, and of course incredible survey below.

You don't have the time? In line with our company's rigorous policies we have no choice but to fill it up for you. What's that? Your'e asking, what about those people who aren't online? No worries, we'll wait for them to go online, but in the meantime we'll also answer the survey for them.
