Well, compared to last time, you’re: slightly older (24% in the 36-45 age range compared to 8%), more feminine (78% –> 69%), equally hetero-homosexual, similarly commited, relationship-wise, and equally white. More details below – here are the full results:
I asked a few other more specific questions. For those in the US, I asked for a state. Of 63 possible, 59 provided a state. The top was not California, but New York, with 9 LAMBs. California, Illinois, Massachusetts, and North Carolina all tied for 2nd with 3 folks. Sadly, I’m the only Arizonan LAMB. I really need to promote more locally…
Of the 9 Canadian folks, 6 are British Columbia, 2 Quebecs, and one Ontario. All 4 European survey takers reside in the United Kingdom, and Asia is represented by India and Singapore.
Since I’m a wildly curious individual, I also asked you all just what it is that you do “for real.” I’m glad to say that 78/79 people answered. Below I give you everyone’s answers, with identifying information deleted, in a random, hard-to-read order (each answer is separated by a comma). Trust me, it’s better than listing one per line:

That about does it. Many, many thanks to the 78 other folks that took the time to participate, and a horse’s head on your pillow to the rest. 😉 Not sure when we’ll do this again, but probably at 400 or 500 LAMBs. Be ready…
