Once a week, I sit down and eat chocolate for 6 1/2 days straight, then I spend 12 hours evaluating quasirandomly selected hypergeometric functions at integer abscissae.

Is he afraid us non-math-intensive people will skew the results in a different direction?

Will there be another poll, for non-maths intensive people, just to see if the results are the same?

I rarely eat chocolate: a few times a year maybe.

It's just that I see many maths acadmics buying choclate or lollies from the machine. Wondering if it's common to for such behaviour as doing maths is intensive to the brain. Choclate probably helps in some way to relax the brain or even prepare it for intensive work. However the polls aren't suggesting it's essential.Will there be another poll, for non-maths intensive people, just to see if the results are the same?

But honestly, I don't think mathematicians are the only ones who try to (or not to) get their chocolate fix every once in awhile.

I don't really eat chocolate all that often anymore, maybe once every two weeks when I used to eat once or twice a week in the past.

Unfortunately, chocolate like having a meal at KFC has diminishing effects.

Hold on. Is not dark (85%+) chocolate a good aphrodisiac ?Unfortunately, chocolate like having a meal at KFC has diminishing effects.

after doing alot of maths and problem-solving, a raisin' chocolate never fails me.

I find that chocolate is more essential before doing mathematical things or after doing some unsuccessful maths. When you are doing successful maths, your brains produce their own stimulus which is much better then chocolate.after doing alot of maths and problem-solving, a raisin' chocolate never fails me.
