Poll Results

Poll 292: The situation: Aliens have appeared and say they have approached ten planets, each of roughly the same population of sentient beings as Earth, with a demand to make as many origami cranes as possible, in perpetuity. The planet that bids the highest number of paper cranes per day, and can deliver on that promise beginning in one month and for at least 10 years, will be spared; the other planets will be destroyed. You are on the committee to decide how many origami cranes Earth should bid. What is your recommendation closest to?
