Missing Movember

First, does everybody know what Movember is? Let's check:
 
Do you know what "Movember" is?
  
If you don't know what it is, follow this link to get the scoop:

I'm guessing most of my readers know what it is (although the poll will tell), either through me or Fat Cyclist or the ever-increasing exposure and general popularity of it. I haven't done it since 2009. Well, not really. I grew a moustache in 2011 I think, but did not register or raise any money. The high numbers of men I see doing it this year are making me wonder if Movember is missing out on a lot of fundraising thanks to people who jump on the bandwagon but don't do the work, like I did in 2011.
 
Back in 2009 when I did it, I had to explain to nearly everyone I knew what I was up to, raising money for prostate cancer research, etc, etc. These days everybody seems to know that Movember is about growing a moustache in November to raise money, but I wonder how many are really doing it (raising money)?
 
This November, please humour me by answering the poll below. It is anonymous. I'm just curious and I'm as "guilty" as anyone, so thanks for your honesty.
  
This November / Movember I Am:

I will be doing the full registration and money-raise next year, I think. That will feel good.

First sign of a mustache and I'm off to the laser spa....

I think that there would be waaaaaaaaaaay less prostate cancer if people stopped giving money to pharmaceutical companies and instead used it to educate people in the prevention of cancer. For example, 600 mg of vitamin D daily (in an oil suspension, as it is not water soluble) will prevent more cancer than billions of dollars in the pockets of the pharmaceutical industry.
