Scarf preferences poll [take two]

I am knitting a scarf as a gift for a man. No, not hubby.
Its public Ravelry project is here and it uses this free pattern.

I know people prefer different lengths of scarf and so I thought I'd ask you all, using a poll, "What lengths of scarf do people like/prefer in a winter scarf?"

Poll #1659282 What are the ideal winter neck-scarf dimensions, in your opinion?

I think that a scarf should not be longer than this length (in/cm):

In my opinion a scarf is too short if it is shorter than this length (in/cm):

I identify and usually dress as (apologies for over simplification):

Male
2(50.0%)
Female
2(50.0%)
Other (or prefer not to say - yes, I know, these choices are not ideal)
0(0.0%)

Tickybox! Please add any more information/opinions in the comments.

Friends groups

I want to create a friends group for posting memes. I know that many of you love it when I post memes but also that some of you hate it. I will only add people to the memes group if they want to see memes.

Poll #1131848 Do you want to be able to see memes on my LJ?

Your thought on memes:

YES - please add me to the group so that I can see memes.
14(63.6%)
NO - do NOT let me see memes.
5(22.7%)
Just make memes public so that non-LJ-ers and feed readers can see them.

Would the real crockpot please stand up?

I am always interested in the differences between the various versions of the English language. One set of items that seem to have overlapping names in the dialects are cooking containers. I thought that I would put together a poll.

Look at the following images, if you will:

a) b)
c) d)
