    Hello everyone.

    I'm doing a bit of research and have a favour to ask. This evening, could you check your sofa for spare change and tell me how much money you find, if any? I'm just interested in EGers from the UK.

    Even if you don't find any, do let me know if you checked. It's for a kind of poll I'm doing. Ta.

    Fluff, a boiled sweet, and a couple of pubes.

    Bizarre poll, but as you're a reg and I like you, I found nothing. There was a single penny in the chair, but none in the sofa.

    I hoped to find my dignity.

    I was sorely disappointed.

    Thanks Dfawkes.

    I know it's a bit of an odd question folks, but it'd helpful if you kept your answers serious. (UNless 'TheMayorOfJugs' did really find fluff, a boiled sweet and a couple of pubes.)

    Nothing here. I suspect loose change is heavy enough to actually work its way through to the base.

    A Peppa Pig sticker. Not just down the sofa either. I swear I'm going to walk into a client meeting one day with one on my jacket.

    I've got this weird leather sofa in which the leather is just one giant piece that sits on a frame, so there's nowhere for the change to go.

    So nothing.

    What kind of coach did you find it under? The personal trainer kind or the one that kills Europeans kind?

    I don't remember what they're called, but I found a small plastic disc with a hologram of a pokemon on it.

    I was joking in my initial post but the truth is that I'm too scared to put my hand down the couch for fear of what I might find. I half expect something to bite me.

    Is the survey to do with how many people on the internet are willing to do something because someone else on the internet with zero credentials asked them to?

    Thanks for checking everyone. I'll keep an eye on the thread until Friday in case anyone else jumps in. Thanks again.
