I decided to do my survey on Pizza and people’s views about the food. I asked my respondents 3 fairly simple questions about how they viewed Pizza. The first question I asked was a simple Yes/No question asking them whether like they like Pizza or not. Secondly, I asked them what they favorite kind of pizza was (i.e. Pepperoni, Hawaiian, etc.). Lastly, I asked my respondents to rate Pizza on a scale from 1 to 10 (1 being least favorite food, 10 being their favorite food). The results I found were quite interesting.
I published my survey on Fluidsurveys.com and you can see it here if you’d like http://fluidsurveys.com/surveys/gary-8S/pizza/.

So I wouldn't say my survey was random unless the population was strictly the people who follow me on Twitter, and even then they choose to take it so it must have interested them just like the internet polls.

The survey produced an average of about 5.74, meaning Pizza is slightly above an average food as there isn't any significant data suggesting that it's really good or really bad according to the survey. Since a 5 on any scale from 1-10 would be an "average" food as it's in the middle and not extremely good or bad. They were a few outliars as a few people put that it was a 2-3, and a few others put that it was a 9 even had one person put a 10.
Now my comment/essay answers were far from essays as no answer I received was more than 5 words long. With that being said my results could easily be broken down into 3 separate...
