The poll options had to be carefully calibrated by our statisticians and reviewed for bias by our Quality Control department. These things take time.

I will record your answer as a write-in. However, I must confess some skepticism of your professed endurance.

Please do not attempt to undermine the integrity of the poll with joke answers.

It's the same as a sunset, except if you're close enough, there is noise. I can coma on this unless something else demands attention.

Like posting.

Evidently at least 20 minutes since I just stood outside and watched some that were very close. But I could only take about 5 minutes for some far away ones last night.

dork-I like the cut of your jib in this thread.




Tonight we were watching the action from our front yard and Mrs. Pusser made the same comment I hear every year. After about five minutes she mentioned that it starts getting boring for the most part. We then thought about spicing it up and making our own skyrockets in flight, afternoon delight, but realized A. it was night and B. (you thought I was gonna say 2 didn't you?) our daughter was sitting next to us.

I watched them for a few minutes, but it was raining. It was also more fun watching the cat freak out.
