Trying to make sense of a weird world - and maybe make it a little better. If that's not possible, then laugh at it. Those with shorter attention spans may enjoy us on Twitter at Private Pebble.

Another unanswerable poll question from the South China Morning Post: Do you believe some Hongkongers might resort to violence to fight for universal suffrage?
Do I believe a few hotheaded demonstrators might scuffle with police at a protest march? Almost certainly - which is probably what the 72& who answered "Yes" have in mind. Do I believe we're going to see pitched mass battles in the street and suicide bombings? No way. If you're going to ask a question like that, define what you mean by "violence" first.
