How would one go about doing a yes/no poll? Meta post, have a "yes" answer and a "no" answer that get voted on, or upvote the main q for yes and down for no?

Q: What is the origin of the Great Machine at Epsilon III in Babylon 5?

FontFamilyThe Great Machine plays a pivotal role in Babylon 5 especially as it relates to Babylon 4. There's a small amount of back story in earlier seasons when Draal takes over the machine. In S3E16, they mention that the Great Machine is over 500 years old. I'm curious as to the origin of the Great Mach...

@Spencer Normally 2 separate answers, "Yes" and "No."
Otherwise it's hard to tell no votes from people who just don't like the question. :)
Plus it gives a place for any expansion of the bald "yes/no" to happen, and the corresponding place to hang comments.

mangiumicroHumans travelling in space play multidimensional chess games (7 dimensions?). One of the female characters may have a name "stormy..." or similar. I read it in italian translation as a kid at the library about 40 years ago.

Q: Is this a reference to "Ozymandias", from Shelley?

Florian Castelain In real life, there is a poem written by Shelley, called Ozymandias. While the coincidence seems very unlikely I am wondering if this is an actual reference to this poem. While I do not know if this is the only existing piece of text that mentions Ozymandias, the content of the text in the book...

Q: Cartoon series of the '90-'00 involving amphibians

AstrinusI watched some episodes of that series when I was young, and from time to time it comes to my mind; however, I had never been able to find its name. I am quite sure (from the drawing style) it was a western production, not an anime. I remember that the main hero is a marine biologist or something...

Michael SternYesterday I watched "Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings," and noticed that in the scene in which Shang-Chi's friend, Katy, is asked her Chinese name, a group of people in the audience laughed when she answered. Nobody in my group could figure out why. Theories included laughter because Ka...

Q: Short story-Aliens want our women.........but just the fat ones

Emsley WyattShort story might date back to the fifties or sixties. Aliens make contact with Earth and, in a twist on that old SF trope, they want women. But just the fat ones. Different standards of beauty and all that. The women are cool with it because they're basically treated like royalty.

Q: Comic book title from the 1970s: robot army in transport planes

Derek RimmingtonI was very young, but some details have remained with me throughout the years and I always wanted to find it. I collected thousands of comics in the '90s, but never came across this one. It was an American newsstand comic sold in a UK newsagents, so very likely DC or Marvel; I'm guessing mid to l...

DianeIn 1984-85 I read a short sci-fi story in a book of stories about a scientist who created a device that sends him to an alternate dimension.
