I posted this poll because of some of the things that were said in a recent thread that this forum does not have wealthy members . So do we have intelligent members with a nice net worth without artificially enhancing the numbers or the Penis sizes ?

The only things familiar to me here are Grey Poupon and Waterford crystal (have a couple of pieces of the latter as wedding gifts from my 1977 wedding, much appreciated of course even though my everyday wine glasses are haute St. Vincent de Paul)

Either way, we're still revealing what our members are worth.

This is confusing but not quite the same thing...

A poll of our members is interesting but is different than a pull of our members !

The outcome is quite different.

Never heard of "1926 Maccalan Fine and Rare Scotch", but I bet my Louis XIII Rare Cask Cognac beats that.

Oh, I still have to buy that bottle, which will be soon.

Right after the Dow hits 40,000.

I swear, I will buy it then. Really.


PS. Wait a minute! You said you are a teetotaler, and just reconfirmed it in another thread! What do you know about Scotch, my man?

You guys are killing me!

Oh, net worth. What exactly does that mean? Cash? Houses? Automobiles? Puppies?

There are polls on this already. The average is 6" - 6.9" (15.2 cm - 17.5 cm). Does anyone care?
