Tapioca Head, how do you make the next draw? I mean, you could "fix" it really couldn't you?

Yes I could quite easily fix it - but I don't.

What I do is print the names on a bit of paper which I then cut out & put them in a bowl. I then shut my eyes & draw the names out - it's not very technical but completely random.

I am also completely neutral as to who wins, I've never met anyone & I've never fallen out with anyone.
What mean expendable?

Not wishing to seem dim but how could you 'fix' it? All the voting is highly visable.

I think he means the 'draw' not the 'voting'.

I don't understand the principles really. I'm assuming you mean that Mr TH could draw a weaker selection and put it with a stronger selection. The stronger section will win. And?

Can you vote for yourself?

A lot of people seem to be doing, but I think we need a definite answer - just so's we know.

It would be nice if we could just restrict it to voting for yourself, and not calling in a legion of nom de plumes to gain victory...
