Poll Over!

I'm ending the Polar Bear vs. Bunny poll now. The final vote is 5-4 for the Polar Bear, which is much closer than I expected. This is how it's gonna work: Since the bear got 5 out of 9 votes, he has a 56% chance of winning this battle. I will use a random number generator to determine the final winner, and do something that I haven't yet decided on to illustrate this.

I'm just a simple accountant, so I am not sure I understand. The vote ended up with the Polar Bear winning 56.5% of the votes. But that doesn't mean the polar bear wins? Now we use a random number generator to do a one time fight, and see who comes out on top? So my bunny still has a chance? Let's go Evil Woodland Creature!!!

That's right Mikey. The poll is just to determine the odds.

And 5/9 is 55.6% of the vote, not 56.5%.

I'll take those odds. Come on Bunny!

Very interesting choice of mechanics. I like this. You are going to have to tell us how the fight actually progressed...
