# 05/10/05 - My favorite rectangle is the black one!! Thanks for entertaining my Math-overloaded brain!
# 05/07/05 - I chose number one because I thought it was a square, but after finding out it wasn't I feel betrayed...
# 04/02/05 - I picked rect 8 then rect 7 I feel dirty.....ImmutableDark
# 03/26/05 - Whoa! This site IS gay!
# 02/19/05 - I feel safe with the golden rectangle, I can recognize him many times
# 01/01/05 - the rectangles are too close together to appreciate their differences
# 12/21/04 - It appears the golden rectangle is not so "golden" when presented vertically.
# 12/15/04 - i still don't see what's pleasing about a stupid rectangle, it's just a stupid shape that we use in geometry class, what is the pleasance?
# 12/14/04 - What is wrong with all you people?!? are all of you on crack?? you guys are [deleted, probably "fucking"] stupid!
# 07/29/04 - I thought 6 was pleasing, and was amused to find it was actually the 'golden' one. Though it's actually black, of course... a colour that reminds me of the darkness that occasionally envelops my soul. Hmm, now that I notice it the rectangles... they all are black! Cold, sunless, endless black! BLACK! Aaaaaaa
# 05/14/04 - AHH RECTANGLE 1 MAKES ME WANT TO THROW UP FOR SOME REASON, WHILE 3 AND 6 MAKE ME FEEL ORGANIZED. WOAH [Jim: By the way, typing all caps is known as "shouting"]
# 05/10/04 - All I know is that the first one is quite possible the ugliest rectangle I have ever seen. Yes, you should do a poll on the ugliest rectangle and I think that one would win.
# 04/30/04 - Jim, which rectangle is most pleasing to you? [Jim: 7 in this poll, and 8 in poll #2]
# 04/30/04 - Jim im disappointed number seven should be the golden rectangle. I just got jiped!
# 04/30/04 - Jim, I wish I would have picked the golden rectangle.
# 04/30/04 - this really [deleted, maybe "shit"?].....people have no life...you have no life...if you have any comment [deleted, possibly something like "fuck off"] and contact [email address deleted]
# 04/27/04 - I liked the seventh triangle just because.
# 04/27/04 - I liked the first rectangle because it is almost square and that is more even and visually pleasing to my eye.
# 04/26/04 - 6 rules
# 04/24/04 - I think that one rectangle's votes will stabalized over time to represent roughtly 8.723%, making the bar chart rendering (above) a golden rectangle, regardless of if it was, itself, golden.
# 04/09/04 - I wasn't trying to pick "The Golden" rectangle. I was only picking out the rectangle that was most pleasing to me. I missed by a mile by picking number 8.
# 04/08/04 - i like the skirt joke hahaha
# 04/02/04 - This is ****ing [almost certainly "fuck"] retarded, you're all losers that need lives. [Jim: my censoring]
# 03/30/04 - Hi, I'm Deryck from Hong Kong, aged 13. When I saw that 8 rectangles, I thought I chose a special rectangle which was extraodinary... But when I revealed the results---- oh my god, that 'strange thing' that I chose was the golden rectangle!!!! Jim, I GIVE UP!!!
# 03/27/04 - If you look back over the time trend of the results of your poll is there a shift as more people move to wide screen TV? [Jim: I don't know]
# 03/17/04 - Never heard of the golden rectangle until now, but I picked it. PROOF that the ancient Greeks were RIGHT!
# 03/16/04 - I think that the rectangles are so close together that judgements about what is most pleasing will be affected by their neighbors; probably a good scientific study would display only one at a time, or only pairs. Also the issue of screen resolution is a serious one; on the Mac, pixels are square, but on most Windows systems, they are not. All that said, it's an interesting study; thanks for putting it up.
# 11/23/03 - Why do people make sarcastic comments in here? It is so rude!!!!!!!!!!!!!
# 11/23/03 - I don't judge rectangle by their outsides, I think it is what's inside that counts
# 10/22/03 - secks?
# 10/01/03 - Are you doing this all manually? No wonder you couldnt figure out Access... [It is mostly automated, now]
# 05/09/03 - [Jim says: Today someone submitted rectangle #6 65 times. I'm counting that as one vote]
# 02/21/03 - looks like a triangle of rectangles... sorry!
# 12/28/02 - My choices did not include a 5
# 12/28/02 - the entire web is out of sync with me!
# 12/13/02 - hmm
# 09/16/02 - please tell me why you are asking?
# 09/12/02 - What's the deal with 'pleasing rectangles'?
# 01/25/05 - I feel that the polls differ because how we see the rectangles is a reflection of how we see ourselves.
# 01/22/05 - THE BELL CURVE SEEMS TO BE WHAT YOU ARE SHOWING. MORE PEOPLE PICK THE MIDDLE CHOICE AND THEN LESS ON EACH SIDE OF THAT. I FOUND THAT INTERESTING.
# 01/22/05 - I think the reasons for the discrepancy between poll 1 and poll 2 is that most people's monitors are NOT adjusted properly and show each rectangle out of proportion.
# 01/08/05 - You prefer #7; do you own an HD TV?
# 01/05/05 - Excellent site Jim.
# 12/28/04 - Perhaps those who like #7 in poll #2 have widescreen televisions at home? Those TV's have aspect ratios of 16:9, which is very close to the 49:28 dimensions of #7.
# 12/15/04 - this is a very interesting idea. good for you
