I got my laugh today reading an online newspaper from back home, Finland. Iltalehti.fi is the online version of one of the biggest national afternoon papers in Finland, a site I visit several times a day. The site has about 250 to 300K daily visits.
Last weekend there was a minor scandal when an online vote for a national TV's talent shows got an extreme amount of votes alltogether, most of them given for a candidate that really did not deserve them. This scandal being a big issue in my small, native Finland (5.3M inhabitants in whole country), all media has covered this since Sunday. Above mentioned newspaper opened yesterday an online poll, asking a simple question: "Do you trust online voting?"
This just now:
Simply, in Finnish it says that in the first 24 hours of this poll, over 1.2M visitors have voted, all 100% of them "Yes, I trust in online voting".
1.2M votes, on a site that has max 300K daily visitors, in a country with less than half of inhabitants of New York City.
Made me really laugh
