Poll: What side were you on in the Battle of Hastings in 1066?
  • 19.6% - William The Conqueror. He had the best name! 63
  • 10.6% - King Harold II. I lost a lot of money on that battle. 34
  • 69.8% - My team didn't make the final that year. 224

Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

No one in my family was in England at the time. Maybe not even in Europe yet.

Pretty sure I wasn't born yet.

Thanks to up-to-the-minute tracking, I don't track my package so much as stalk it.

1066 was the last successful invasion of England historically. Today, others are finding their way in, and nobody is stopping them from flooding into the country.

My many-times great-grandfather, Pole Roddam, was given land by one of Harold's predecessors.
