Accounting for the groupings at either end, it's a really nice gaussian distribution. So aesthetic... *sigh*...

So far, it's 24.4 mean, 4.9 standard deviation, 23 median. I had to make a couple assumptions, naturally.

Shouldn't you be reproducing by budding?
Sponges reproduce both sexually and asexually. Except SpongeBob, who is gay. Even though sponges are hermaphrodites.

I beg to differ. In my opinion, SpongeBob is either prepubescent, or cross-special. His "girlfriend" is a squirrel. But I would argue that they're not lovers, and at most have played doctor a few times. I see him as pre-sexual. A little effeminate, perhaps.

Have you not heard about James Dobson (a "Christian psychologist") saying that SpongeBob is gay and promotes a homosexual agenda?

What is "cross-special"?

Yeah, but I disagree. After all, I'm not gay but I still promote a homosexual agenda.

I made "cross-special" up, to mean sexually attracted to creatures of a different species than oneself.

Better poll might be - how old will you be when you finish med school?
