Brilliant idea placeholder

I just had a brilliant idea and I didn't want to forget having it. I want to create a website that allows people to rate the day. A day would be available for voting for a 24-hour period, during which the current votes would be averaged in real-time to show what kind of day the average voter was having. Numbers on the scale would be associated with hilarious graphics a la Hyperbole and a Half, and the image would change to match the reigning rating. Mostly this would be for my own amusement, but does anyone know of a good open-source web application that could be used to realize this vision? Today has been rather shitty and I feel like sharing it with the world.

In other news, there are kilted pipers wandering up and down Granville, piping. What the hell?

ETA: WHY ARE ALL THE ANDROID LJ APPS SO TERRIBLE. Dear LJ, build me a native Android app RIGHT THE HELL NOW, please and thank you. And a Blackberry one too, while you're at it.

Wouldn't it be AWESOME? I mean, you'd have to restrict it to registered users and one vote per twelve hour period to keep determined pessimists from literally ruining everyone else's day (statistically, anyway), but oh, god, today it would have improved my mood immeasurably.

That...is an awesome idea. Can't think of an open source app that would handle it, but awesome idea.

Frustratingly, I want to do this even more today than I did yesterday and I still have no idea HOW.
