Rather than say "Hey, I posted it first!" (before we had the blitz of Friendly threads), I'll just say:

We were also going to bomb Notre Dame, New Orleans and Atlantis, but those already bombed themselves.

From the survey that was a troll question. Not to mention that The polling firm already leans left just like other firms that lean right. If you expect unbiased results do them yourself considering your unbiased yourself.

Any group that has to deal with politics are by their very nature biased one way or the other.
As for me I would answer yes since that where the heartless live "kingdom heart reference"

In my city the newspaper goes to every graduating class in High School and polls a few hundred kids. Keep in mind they are required to pass a government class in order to graduate. The numbers differ from year to year, but typically 70-90% of the kids cannot answer who the current Vice President is. So when asking people about a fictional location, it's going to get a lot of people not wanting to sound ignorant and just agreeing to things.


I loved history growing up. I went to the mall a few years back and asked random people basic history questions and the answers I got were no different than the ones these people are giving. Now i'm thinking of recording the next 4th of July and see how many people could actually give correct answers. It be entertaining if it wasn't so sad. Maybe I should do this every year and post the results on here.
You should find these videos interesting.

This is the worst thing I've read all week.

If this is real, you're right. We're screwed. The masses are made up of people like this and these people are voting. There is no hope.

Probably the most meaningless, ridiculous poll I have ever heard of. Why is the media wasting our time with fictional conjecture instead of getting statistics that actually matter and dealing with the real issues?

It's the same group that asked people to choose between Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and Deez Nuts.

I would vote "HELL NO, MOEFOE!!!" and be very angry that someone would bomb the location of some of my favorite Disney movies (I liked all three films btw).

The not sure were probably legitimate because they don't know the city. I know I would vote yes just for the lulz.


See, that's what I'm saying. They were probably going for "not sure" because they either didn't want to risk there actually being a place called Agrabah other than the one in the film while those who went "Hell yea, bro!" were probably mostly joking. Ask a stupid question and all that.

At least I hope so.


Don't underestimate how utterly STUPID a majority people are... Orz

I saw this on another site.


All I can say is, this country is officially, absolutely FUCKED. How stupid are people that they want to bomb something fictional because it's Middle-Eastern?

Poor Robin Williams must be seriously spinning in his grave.

Literally republicans will answer "Hell yeah!" to questions like these because of how much it just pisses off people who don't want to have America be a superpower anymore.


You could ask them if they support bombing Mars and you'd get the same response.

I don't have sufficient words to express how much that irritates me.
