It's calculating percentage by dividing by the total number of registered members.
No it's not. 15% for 75 votes (as the Paul poll results show at the time of my writing this) would mean there are 500 registered members, whereas there are over 3,000 registered members. It's counting each checked box as a single vote, and using that amount as the denominator.

As of right now one more person got the Do Equis FJ correct than have tasted Do Equis beer. That's an interesting result!

Yeah, it's late, but I'm one of the two. I know of many beer brands, but cannot stand the taste of any beer.

Not sure whether to give myself Friday. I knew they were going for The Princess Bride, but I overcomplicated it by saying weddings and royalty. Should have had Swift but I was tired and didn't think of it, um, swiftly enough. Have not tasted Dos Equis (do not like any beer). NCAA did not cause me to miss any games.
