Poll: Most Americans hiding in basement
La Lune de la presse internationale
In a random sampling of 1,000 US adults, the La Rochelle Times showed, 68% of Americans responded positively to the question: "Are you currently hiding in the basement?" Although the survey did not expound on the reasons for such ubiquitous cowardliness, La Rochelle Times analysts have concluded that the main reasons include fear, self-depreciation or anti-social tendencies.
Approximately three-quarters of those surveyed are assumed to be cowering in fear, with the remaining quarter about evenly divided between the self-loathing and anti-social crowds. Moreover, experts contend that some may be cowering in fear while at the same time despising themselves and trying to flee outside social contacts.
The results of the survey were as follows:
"Are you currently ...
... reading?" 2%
... cowering under the sheets?" 6%
... eating?" 10%
... hiding in the basement?" 68%
... contacting your government Representatives?" 1%
... sleeping on the couch?" 4%
... defecating in utter fear and/or anticipation?" 8%
