Rules (In Progress)

  • If the answer is marked HUMAN, it will be resolved NO if an object or other non-human wins (Example: ChatGPT does not count as an English speaker)

  • If the answer is marked INDIVIDUAL, it will resolve NO if more than one person wins.

  • If a group of people wins, an answer must apply to ALL of them for it to resolve YES. (Example: If the answer is 'Bald', and a group of five people win, it will resolve YES if all five are Bald, and NO if at least one person is not Bald.)

I reserve the right to NA any answer for any reason, to combat duplicates or abuse.

bump due to rumors

bought Ṁ20 of Blue eyes YES

Do you agree that Trump, Biden, Putin, and Altman all have blue eyes? 🧿🧿

@33 seems yes based on some googling

@strutheo Ya, Trump's are sometimes listed as grey, so thanks for the confirmation!

Athlete (Professional) (can be retired)

Trump is an avid golfer. Biden is a cyclist.

It doesn't say professional

@33 im going to update it to be professional thanks for pointing out

@strutheo better sell! :)

bought Ṁ30 of Has won Times POTY b... YES

How does it resolve for a collection of people? Two examples that maybe have different treatment

  • “You” (6billion people)

  • “Biden and Harris” (2 people)

@Gen trying to think of a good way to do this

Method 1 - classify all answers as 'individual' or 'group' in the response. and if a a 'group' ends up being picked, i can NA or NO all the 'individual' answers (like blue eyes , 6 feet tall, etc)

Method 2 - if there is a group of people and any one of them has the trait (eg blue eyes) then we can resolve those YES

still unsure which i prefer

@Gen adding some rules to the description let me know if you think of any more edge cases

...could suck a golf ball through a garden hose.

hmm any source we can use for this @33

@strutheo I'm willing to research it

@Tumbles I think most year's would be a no. 2023's winner might need a pole, I mean poll, to resolve. There's quite a large sample to draw results from.

But ya, I say Tumbles gets the final say on this one.

Has won Times POTY before

Does this apply to anyone who read the 2006 Time POTY ?

@Tumbles no haha (unless they do YOU again)

Does English speaker mean native English speaker or does second-language count? Would ChatGPT count as an English speaker?

@JakobBrunker english speaker will imply they speak english conversationally , does not have to be first language. and we won't consider any non humans as a 'speaker' for the purposes of this question.
