    I asked my audience six questions: some sensible, some ridiculous. I compared their results to the public. And the results were... interesting. • Graphics by William Marler: wmad.co.uk and his Lungs Podcast: lungspodcast.co.uk

Your audience probably just chose cats more often from their “viral-ness” online

I think the reason for the results of the "how weird are you" question is that YOU, Tom are a solid 5 on that scale. We watch your videos, we sympathise with the ways you think and behave so we must be ona similar wavelength here

my guess for why tom's audience rates it's wierdness at five is because we are ussually well aquanited with the internet, where we find weird interests, but we see more weird interests that we don't have,

I have an idea about why so many people chose Henry. There's that video where someone asks her grandma to name pokemon, and I think that the grandma named one of the pokemon Henry. Maybe everyone who knows that video unconsciously linked that with the owl? I have no idea why that would be the case Edit: I was thinking of said grandma naming a charmander "Hamilton." I'm out of ideas.

If the answer to the question 'how weird is my audience?' is slightly more weird then you think you are and i'm part of your audience and the thing that I thought was also slightly more weird then I think I am, then what does that mean?

I heard intellectuals are more likely to be cat people, so if you are doing scientific or educational videos that could be why cays were preferred.

Why would you ever use TWO spaces after a period? Books, articles, everything uses one space. What is the purpose of two spaces? It's not aesthetically pleasing. That's for sure.

Regarding the cats vs. dogs difference, I think it's not your audience thing, but the "general public" thing. The audience was american and it's a cultural thing for americans to be dog people. One of the reasons is dog food companies, they constantly run ads which link puppy/dog images with images of happiness. They don't "sell" you dog food, they "sell" you an idea that owning a dog means you feel better. It's much more profitable because if you get a dog, you become a dog food buyer for the next 5-10-15 years.

It feels weird having always been two-space despite being terminally online for at this point literally more than half my life. It's definitely reflex, but I also think it looks magnitudes better in longer-form text, which is where my typing leans anyway. Just one of those things, I guess. 25-34 group, too.

Wait people can make themselves smell things the same way we can imagine a picture in our heads? I smell something and am bombard with any memories or experiences connected to that smell, but the other way around doesn't produce the smell. I can't force myself to smell a fart that isn't there.

What stuck me actually weird is the fact that you didn’t list Hedwig as definietly female name. My guess would be that’s the result of lack of articles in English, animals are by default addressed in neuter (it). I don’t think any Polish or German HP viewer would ever consider Hedwing to be anything else but female, despite her sex was never addressed in the books

I think Athena was because there's a literal genus of small owls called Athene, not _directly_ because of the general association of Athene with owls. IOW, the respondents wouldn't have said Athena to a picture of a big owl.
