Middle-earth poll

Because i'm curious about people's opinions on certain contentious items of Middle-earth canon, here's a poll! (Plus a few silly questions for light relief.) Please feel free to skip questions if you don't know or don't have an answer, or reply in comments if your answer would start, "Well, it's more complicated than that..."

(Note: the second responsse to the extramarital sex question was supposed to be 'Very, very, VERY rarely. It's not normal at all." rather than copying the last bit of the previous answer. Unfortunately I can't seem to edit it now it's posted.)
