Default Supplemental census form arrived

Our household is one of the lucky ones to receive the supplemental "decennial" census survey. I guess they didn't like the answers on the last one.

Here are some of the questions: Do you live in a mobile home? What were the actual sales of agricultural products on your property? Is this property a barber-shop? How many automobiles of one-ton capacity or less are kept at this home? Which fuel is used most for heating this home (not for those in Eire, peat is not on the list). What is your monthly rent. Where were you born? What was the highest degree or level of school, What is your ancestry or ethnic origin (I am distantly related to Piltdown man -- think they'll buy it?), how well do you speak English? do you have difficulty concentrating, remembering or making decisions?

I like this one "Please PRINT below the specific major(s) of any BACHELOR'S DEGREES".

I think I'll just staple the $100 fine to the form and send it back without filling out.

Do what we did- lie. We have six Indians (feather) living here with us, and we're both disabled senior citizen Africans.

Do "tribe members" count as aboriginal americans?

In the Mormon view, yes. Excuse me, I have to go open a casino.

Palm nuts, chicken, onions and hot chiles. I make it with tofu.

I must be a total geek. I got the original census form and an pencil and was shocked that it was as short as it was. I was all ready to have fun "filling out the forms and playing with the pencils".

There is a member of my household who is now gainfully employed (praise be!) at a call center doing follow-ups to complete the info on the original form.

I'll ask if we can get a group buy going for the long form...that way we can all have fun...

Where I live a school bus qualifies as a "mobile home"

Why would you guys not just hunker down and take the time to fill it out accurately?
