Reposted for the last time... anyone missing this post will have to get
it from me via mail, or wait until I get it onto my webpage.

THE GREAT 1995 AHWW SURVEY RESULTS!!!!

Yes, that's right. After months of apologies and procrastination, I have
finally finished processing the completed survey questionnaires. In the
end I received over 25 replies, totalling nearly 10,000 lines of data!

The statistics shown below are intended to represent a general picture of
various aspects of our packmembers' lives. Please note that there is no
supposition involved here... All this is from hard data, so don't flame
me if you don't agree. I reckon that this survey is highly accurate, if
you consider the numbers involved... No-one knows exactly how many
packmembers we have, but if we say 100 as a rough figure, that means that
the survey covered over 25% of the target population (TV viewing
figures often use 0.01% or lower).

Comments and discussion are welcomed... I think you'll find the results
interesting, and sometimes surprising.

SECTION 8 - MORAL ISSUES

An experiment in were attitudes...

A family member that you are close to (father/mother/brother/sister) is

formula that would give you the power of physical change into your
were-animal at will. You only have the time to save one of them. Which
do you choose to save?

1. Family Member 72 %
2. Professor 28 %

>>> Reasons in favour of saving the family member were generally that
>>> saving the professor would be a wholly selfish act. Reasons against
>>> mostly involved the were not being close to family.


SUMMARY

Although it involved a lot of time and effort, I'm very pleased with how
this survey has turned out. I would like to thank everyone that responded.

So what has it told us about this pack? Well, there are some very
interesting points that have been made. Firstly, the species
distribution is, as we all suspected, very much in favour of the wolf.
We also have a promising gender ratio, with approximately three males to
every female, as opposed to the Internet's overall figure of 10:1,
sometimes quoted as high as 12:1. The average age of the AHWW
packmember is a little over 23 and a half years, which is a couple of
years older than I expected.

I won't go over everything, as I'm sure you can see the figures for
yourselves. Once again, thank you for your time in responding. I now
throw open the floor for discussion...

Heh, I'd save the professor. I don't need the formula, but I'd gladly
watch the family member die in agony... Then I'd give the formula to every
one here :-)

Also noted- 2/3rds of AHWW is zoo, but 64% have never had sex with an animal??

Hey, you people, YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE MISSING!!

[And for those of you with the worry 'What if my dog doesn't want to screw
me', do you HONESTLY think a large dog would let you do what you wanted
with NO show of resistance??!?!!?!??!?!!??!!?]

Can we assume from this that were-coyotes don't like to fill out survey
forms?
