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?

Stand on one leg, closed eyes, and tilt head back...
Try that on...
not while driving...

If you want, you pay...
But, if you need, you pay more!

I'm not going to lie... reading "Let me just give it a -- [CONCUSSION]" made me LOL!

I'd wager that based on the results, most folks voting haven't actually tried this. It is a lot tougher than you think.

Sure, your ears do a lot for balance, but so do your eyes. They tell you when you start to tip so you can fire up the retro rockets (or muscles; whatever YOU use) and counter it.

Seriously, give it a try sometime (probably when you're in a pillow store or next to one of those foam gymnastics pits to be safe), I think you'll be surprised.

So how many people actually tried this at work before voting? I have a mental image of startled co-workers jumping up to find out what caused that crash in the next cube.
