Put Money In the Lizards' Pockets - for Free!
Henry Copeland of BlogAds is running some sort of reader survey. I'm not exactly sure how it works, but there's some free money in it for Big Lizards; and by God and my left knee, we're going to find it.
First, he says we should toss in the following link to the survey: Put tens of thousands of dollars into our pockets without you spending a dime! (Confession: That wasn't Hank's suggested wording. I had one of my very infrequent attacks of whimsy.)
Note: This is not a pyramid scheme. Or if it is, it's very cleverly disguised.
Next, we're supposed to "encourage" readers to click on the thing and take the survey. Bruno Tolioni will visit you shortly and dance at you until you relent.
I haven't see the survey yet; I'm sure the questions are nosy and intrusive, like how many times you sneeze during the day (requires an accurate record) and the volume of pizza sauce in milliliters you consume each fortnight... or maybe not; what do I know?
Here's an example of the BlogAdders' wild sense of humor:
Extra cheering helps get more results. But please warn readers that the survey is long, BUT they can bail anytime after the first page [too many buts in this sentence]. (Once they hit drinks questions, they're almost home and deserve a drink.)
Make of it what you will; everybody must believe in something. I believe I'll have another grog.
They do warn this survey is longish; but I won't know exactly how long until I take it myself. And then, I'm sure my own experience won't help you much, since I regularly answer all survey questions with random mouse twitches. (I think it's a nervous condition; it's a wonder it doesn't stop me from typing.)
So let me put this up, take the survey, and then I'll add an update giving my lap time down to the microsecond.
Update: The survey took me exactly 22:00.000002 by my stopwatch. Your mileage may vary, but probably not by more than 1.8 seconds.
Tally ho. Yoinks.

Took me 30 min. Can't believe that they didn't list IceHouse/Plank Road!?! Didn't leave my email address, because you weren't offering money/prize, per last page @ survey site.
