Can I pick automobiles for the 25 transportation category?
Sorry, I misjudged. It sounded like you were trying to twist the rules to make ultra-generic picks.
(besides which, given the format, I think specific picks may trump general ones a lot. If the category is "somewhere to go on vacation", I think I'm going to vote for "Bali" more often than I vote for "the beach")
Actually that parenthetical brings up a question. Are the polls just going to be each of our answers against each others', or are we going to do write-ups? I'd favor the former because a) since the categories are so general it rewards creativity in finding an awesome answer rather than trying to pick the most general to "lock out" everyone else and then going more specific in the writeup, b) I really don't feel like doing 10 writeups each round, and c) some large proportion of voters aren't going to read the writeups, and some other proportion will be deterred from voting because they don't feel like reading the writeups.
