Staring at poles is surprisingly informational.
You can learn so much from the numbers. The height, the width, the circumference, the length of the shadow. You should try it. Wait, are you talking about POLLS. Well what can you get from those. The information they contain does not support anything like POLES do. POLES are always unbiased and are straight, unlike POLLS which are almost always biased and are twisted. Real POLES can shed light on things via light bulbs, but POLLS usually do nothing but cloud up things, especially if the media has something to do with them.
