...and I'm curious as to what you mean by "English culture".  How do you define "English"?

Does it only refer to England? One small, cloudy (and increasingly insignificant) country in the British Isles, just below Scotland and to the east of Wales? A bit limited, surely?

Or English language speakers?  A vast and amorphous set of hundreds of millions of speakers, made up of dozens of different cultures and ethnicities, spread out across every continent of the planet?  Too broad, surely?

Don’t they teach college students that tossing a survey out to millions of people and allowing a handful to select themselves will not produce anything resembling a randomized group? The future of science is in jeopardy.

Insignificant details, Phil. Insignificant.

I can't help you, Miss. I don't work for peanuts anymore. My organ grinding days are over. Heck, you didn't even offer a measly peanut .

Survey says: 33.3% of randomly selected native English speakers identify themselves as chimpanzees. Will a university professor suspect someone has been monkeying around with the experiment?
