From reading a number of posts, it seems to me that there may be a significant portion of folks on this forum (perhaps more than in the general population) who lead sort of an "ascetic" life style.
I would define this as not being married, no children, no car or at least a very minimal car which is seldom used, very simple living, likely inclined to single bike touring, and generally have a fair amount of time to devote to their biking (and perhaps other interests).
On the other hand, there are also folks like me, with rather significant family responsibilities (two profoundly handicapped children, wife, recent major medical problems) with cars, significant work responsibilities and other related baggage, who might have less time for those kind of things.
Sometimes it seems as if there is a gap between the conclusions about life, biking, cars and other areas between the disparate ends of these two groups.
Again, it is probably one of DnvrFox's far out theories for which I will get the usual amount of flak, but, then, this is only the internet, and "sticks and stones may break my bones, but words . . . ."
So, please feel free to answer the poll in any way you might. Be your own rater.
Okay, have at me. I can take it!
