5. The survey comes from Kara Porter’s second-grade class at North Vermillion Elementary School in Cayuga, Indiana.
Porter told BuzzFeed News every student contributed one question, and the school secretary posted the survey on Facebook Tuesday morning so they could gather responses.
“We were just thinking local — people that we know, people that our parents know,” Porter said.
Instead, the survey went ridiculously viral, with people taking it in Finland, Tasmania, South Africa, and beyond.
As of Wednesday afternoon, the survey has more than 230,000 responses.
6. People are really, really loving it.
10. It got so popular it actually crashed at one point.
11. Some of the questions proved rather divisive.
15. And some just get a bit too real.
16. Porter said her class is “thrilled” that their survey is getting so many responses.
In class today, Porter left the link up on the Smart Board so the class could watch how many people were taking the survey in real time.
“You can just watch that number tick, tick, tick, just counting up, and they’ll squeal every time we hit a big milestone,” she said. “They’ve been joking that we broke the internet. Every time I go to refresh and it won’t work, they’re like, ‘Ah, we broke the internet again!’”
Porter plans to close the survey on Friday and will be sharing some quick stats on the school’s Facebook — but due to the thousands of responses, sorting through all the data is going to take a bit longer than expected.
“We are planning to graph all of this, but now I don’t know how!” she said.
