lohphat:   A Manhattanite's view of the USA

[strangemaps.files.wordpress.com image 705x952]

Then there's this:

San Francisco Bay Area as seen by New Yorkers



I'm not a New Yorker (visited it numerous times), but that map seems to make sense to me as someone who lived for years in SF.

Even the New York term "bridge and tunnel folks" is used in SF - a term for East Bay people.

That ruskie professor that did the chart red5ish posted went full retard if he thinks TN,KY, the Carolinas, and the Virginias are gonna join the EU if the US as we know it collapsed. The former CSA would likely all be together in 1 country.

Join the CSA!  BAHAHAHAHAHAHA!  Too many people in those states are now accustom to having teeth and indoor plumbing.

We also own most of the guns...

tuna fingers: buzzcut73: tuna fingers: buzzcut73: El Norte in the house. New Mexico isn't bad, I find the weather agreeable most of the time, and if you like geology I can't think of anywhere that has more variety than we do in this state.

Hey buzz, we were gonna get a beer when you finished that summer class..

Oh yeah! Good news, it's over now. I moved across town right after it was over and it slipped my feeble mind.
My bad, I'll get in touch and work that out.

What part of town?  I'm near Hastings - Farleys is within a long walk.


Great Caesar's Ghost! There are other Farkers in Las Cruces?
I'd be happy to give you a ride to Farley's if you need one. EIP.

There's actually 4 (including a Farkette we unearthed in a thread like this a few months ago).  Let's do this!

ChicagoKev: New Hampshire doesn't belong in Yankeedom, give NH and Maine to New France.

unamused: Chicago is in the low violent death area because of its good gun control.

Chicago has low violent deaths?

I do agree that the focus on gun control ruins what could otherwise be a good article.

People are doing a disservice to the book that this map is drawn from by solely going off of the blurb in the newspaper article.

W. T. Fark: So this puts Austin TX in Greater Appalachia, a small distance away from El Norte and the Deep South.


I was having trouble making that out.  I'm in Williamson County on the Travis line and appear to be in Deep South.

ok, thats a shiatty sentence...whatever it's late and I'm half drunk.

At least I didn't rock a Herman Cain AND a Michelle Bachmann sticker at different times during the last election. The guy owning property next to mine did.

Yes; Los Angeles is the same as Texas.  Because most humans in these places are omnivorous bipeds.  Also, almost no Zoroastrians.

Of course, places with a higher population density are going to have a higher percentage of these households.

High density population centers by definition must have higher income earners to pay for the higher property value locations and also have more higher educated persons who do not require space to perform in their respective jobs that merely require the pushing around of immaterial numbers and ideas. Both of those things are found in higher concentration in higher population density centers by default.

Much better, that makes sense, although I wonder if that is true in India or China, where there are large urban poor populations.

HOWEVER - we're both posting in the wrong thread.  Duh.   Serves me right.

The whole idea of "Super Zip" is stupid, and I say this despite (because) I live in one.

Just one reason ranking zip codes based on "median household income" is pointless if that he doesn't account for cost of living -- people who live here are college educated and make high incomes because if you don't have a high income, you can't afford to live here, and it's easier to make more money with a college education.   If you spend all your money on housing and taxes, how is your zip code "super"?

Also, an urban zip code covers a much smaller area than more rural zip codes, In an urban setting like Chicago, the poorest areas are almost certainly in separate zip code, so it is easy to classify just the rich parts of Chicago as "super zips" because the poor parts are a different zip code.   Look in more rural areas and zip codes cover more square miles and a greater mix of people, so inherently there are fewer "super zips" where the population density is lower and each zip code covers a larger, more diverse area.

I was bringing that map here from the later thread as it seemed relevant.

ChicagoKev: is pointless if that he doesn't account for cost of living


There is a point where cost of living is an artificially inflated value because of the manufactured necessities that persons with huge amounts of disposable income invent for themselves.
