The story of "Ballot Result" starts with the Tour-Spiel EP in 1984. The Minutemen had been given a copy of a tape of a live radio performance for the Virgin Vinyl Show they had done in Tuscon, Arizona, four songs of which they used for the EP. The engineer of that particular session later claimed that the Minutemen had not gotten his permission to use the recording and reacted by releasing a bootleg album, ...just a Minute Men. The sudden existence of the bootleg album, which the engineer blatantly promoted through magazines like Spin and Flipside, pissed off the Minutemen enough that the group decided to do an anti-bootleg album, 3 Guys, 6 Sides, Half Live. The group printed ballots which they passed out to fans during their summer and fall 1985 performances as well as planned to insert into the first pressing of their next studio album, 3-Way Tie (For Last); the ballots would determine which songs the band would record for the live portion of the album. Audio engineering is the branch of engineering dealing with the production of sound through mechanical means. ... Spin is a music magazine. ...


The automotive death of guitarist and lead singer D. Boon on December 22, 1985 scuttled the Minutemen, putting an end to both the band and the planned live album. Surviving members Mike Watt and George Hurley, a few months from reuniting to form fIREHOSE with singer/guitarist Ed Crawford], decided to use the ballots and existing live recordings (many sent in by fans and friends) to compile the album. D. Boon, born Dennes Dale Boon (April 1, 1958 - December 22, 1985) was guitarist and lead singer of punk rock group The Minutemen. ... December 22 is the 356th day of the year (357th in leap years) in the Gregorian Calendar. ... 1985 is a common year starting on Tuesday of the Gregorian calendar. ... Mike Watt Michael David Watt (b. ... George Hurley is a drummer best known for his work with The Minutemen and fIREHOSE. Since 1994, he has played with the Red Crayola and Tom Watson from Slovenly. ... Indoor firehose A firehose is a thick, high-pressure hose used to carry water or other fire retardant (such as foam) to a fire to extinguish it. ...


The final album contains all live recordings plus a few rarities and a couple of previously released studio tracks to compensate for the fact that the Minutemen had not performed the song live yet (as in the case of "The Price Of Paradise" from 3-Way Tie...) or that no live recording of the song was available ("Song For El Salvador" from The Punch Line and "Dreams Are Free, Motherfucker!" from Buzz or Howl Under the Influence of Heat, to give two examples.) The Punch Line is the first full-length album and third record release by influential punk/alternative trio The Minutemen, and the fourth-ever release from SST Records. ...


The CD version deletes most of the previously released studio recordings (except for "Shit You Hear At Parties" from The Politics Of Time, which SST didn't have the rights to at the time) but also, curiously, deletes the live version of "Hey Lawdy Mama". The cassette version adds a cover of "Fortunate Son" that was an outtake from the Joy sessions and a "Closing Jam" to the double vinyl track listing. Joy is a three-song seven-inch EP by The Minutemen. ...

Arrow's impossibility theorem - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1730 words)
In other words: the vote must have a result that ranks all possible choices relative to one another, the voting mechanism must be able to process all possible sets of voter preferences, and it should consistently give the same result for the same profile of votes—no randomness is allowed in the process.
Arrow's theorem is a mathematical result, but it is often expressed in a non-mathematical way, with a statement such as "No voting method is fair", "Every ranked voting method is flawed", or "The only voting method that isn't flawed is a dictatorship".
These statements are simplifications of Arrow's result which are not universally considered to be true.
