Brendon's informal survey.

Good friend Brendon C Bleebwart just got back from a visit to the City by the Bay where he was shocked at the number of male couples strolling around in Fisherman's Wharf hand in hand and listening to iPods.

Intrigued - and thinking he might be onto something - he conducted an informal survey amongst the couples he ran into. Here were his questions.

  1. Do you own an iPod?
  2. Do you own an Apple computer?
  3. Are you in fact GAY?
Not surprisingly 100% of the 242 individuals (121 couples) Brendon interviewed owned iPods; 98% said they owned an Apple computer; and a full 100% of those who answered 'yes' to question 2 also answered 'yes' to question 3.

Now totally sure he was onto something, Brendon went back up Market Street and, wandering down from the Mark Hopkins to Union Square, conducted a new survey. This time he would confront all iPod users regardless of ostensible sexual/cultural preference. Here were his new questions.
  1. Do you own an iPod?
  2. Do you own an Apple computer?
  3. Are you in fact GAY?
Not surprisingly 100% of the 441 individuals Brendon interviewed this time owned iPods; only 41% said they owned an Apple computer; but a full 98% of those who answered 'yes' to question 2 also answered 'yes' to question 3.

'Veni vidi vici', said Brendon to our chief editor.

'I think you mean QED', said the chief editor.
