Hello,as some of you might know i teach sociology and civics classes at high school,since its now recess me and my friend who is an astrologist got a fun idea to do joint research about connection of zodiac signs and peoples worldview.We're gonna ask our colleauges , friends, acquintances these and other questions,i postd once most related to politics here cause of the nature of the forum.At the end we're gonna publish the survey results on the blog he plans to launch somewhere next week,it will be the blog mostly about astrology so i wont be involved in that after we finish this research.

Your input would mean a lot to both of us

Social Democrat is not an option in #2 and my views on Abortion are actually nuanced for #6. I cannot answer as it stands.

Social Democrat is what i thought under Socialist label,cause thats how most Social Democrats label themselves nowadays including Sanders in the US and many European parties like Partie Socialiste in France,Party of European Socialist in Euro Parliament etc,but i am going to clarify it right now,as for abortion part gonna add option Other but it would be nice if you could further elaborate your views on the subject

In one of my classes in college the professor handed every student a random file folder with a zodiac horoscope, and polled every student in the lecture hall about how accurate that reading was based on their sign.

Then, the professor had students trade folders so that everyone had a completely different horoscope, and polled the students again on how accurate it was based on their sign. 

The number of "accurate" zodiac readings was the same in both polls...

Out of curiosity, although I figure by implicit statement quite a few times, @vcczar's favourite genre of music is Classical (in which he may or may not also include Baroque, Romantic and/or Opera, as many do by just saying, "Classical"), I'm curious what the other five who put, "other," have as there's - @ConservativeElector2, @Cenzonico, @MrPotatoTed, @Rezi, and @WVProgressive.

I consider Classical Music as any music meant to be played by an orchestra. But Classical is also a period. So I would categorize the music as "Classical: Middle Ages, Classical: Renaissance, Classical: Baroque, Classical: Classical, Classical: Romantic, etc.". I think opera is generally my least favorite of the subgenres in any of these categories.

Baroque is probably my favorite -- Bach, Handel, Telemann, Lully, Marais, and Couperin are probably my favorites. Corelli is rising. They're all good, even Vivaldi, who is usually a favorite of most people. I like Vivaldi too, but I tend to like these others more often.

Middle Ages and Renaissance are really hit or miss for me. Classical proper is probably my 2nd favorite classical genre, but it sometimes lacks the energy of baroque. Romantic can be great (Chopin, for instance), but it can also be very long, winded and slow.

After Romantic, one really starts rolling the dice on what's good an what isn't. I tend to like specific pieces more than composers at this point. I think Erik Satie, Sergei Prokofiev, and Arvo Part (who is somehow still alive) might be my favorite of composers that lived in the 20th century or later. 21st century composition is very experimental. It's interesting, but little of it is stuff I'd listen to more than once. It often seems desperate to do something--anything--new, which has some merit, but isn't necessarily quality. 

If I had more musical talent (taught myself how to play parts of compositions on piano once), I'd probably make my own kind of neo-baroque music.

My favorite genre is classical music as well, but I usually listen to a wide variety of tracks I like. That also includes K-Pop (!!!) and rap and so on.

I grew up on my dad’s Country music and my mom’s Oldies (what was considered Oldies in the late 80’s/early 90s, that is).  I later got into musical theater because that’s where the girls were who I liked in my school, so that was my “in” into spending more time with them.  I then went on to become a Top 40 Radio Dj for the military, got into some rap, and eventually developed a several years long obsession with punk rock Bowling for Soup.  Now my Spotify is a jumble of everything, with the most played songs being from dark comedy singer Bo Burnham.

So, that is to say my music tastes are eclectic! Ha.

Mostly, I like a song that tells a good story.  Country, rap, musical theater showtunes...these genres might not have a lot in common, but they are all really good at telling a good story.

House, rave, eurodance, etc. Generally, I listen to anything that "sounds good to my ears".

Astrologists drive me crazy. It’s a huge thing for young alternative people who want to be “spiritual” while still bashing Christianity 24/7 in my experience. I’m not very religious, but I find it to be an incredibly hypocritical stance from those I’ve met in real life. I’m sure there are others more sane with it.

Libra/Progressive/Bernie Sanders/Spiritual-My long time girlfriend is Hindu (which I love so many of the messages and teachings Hinduism has), I grew up in a Catholic household-I don't support the church and really in general just believe in a god and an afterlife whatever god or representation of afterlife that is, What I support is the good ideas religions teach like caring for your neighbor and giving to the needy/Support LGBTQ+/Pro-Choice/Pro-legalization/Humanitarian/I really don't have a favorite music genre, though the band teen suicide is pretty much my favorite type of music, but also Juice Wrld was/is my favorite artist and Post Malone is up there/horror movies

*groan* Don't give up your day job. The improv audience is merciless, and will break your heart, with such lame bombs. Unless you've got vapid, far-too-easily amused, and possibly neurotically prone to inappropriate laughter individuals in your audience, like the one who put the laugh emote up is well known to be...
