    So today noerf.com expires and I'm not renewing it. I have all the files that were on it but it's still up for the day if you need to rescue anything from irk. You'll have to find somewhere else to store your crap. I'm looking at you, Greg [face_plain]


    Actually I have the domain of my own name to make a professional website... when I have time.



    Let's post images whose links will go dead tonight!

    Oh NOES!

    I guess none of the pictures in the LEAGUE episodes will show up anymore. :( Oh well. Thanks for the warning.

    So Jazzy, I was walking down the street near MIT today and what did my eyes behold?

    A squirrel. But not just any squirrel.

    A BLACK squirrel.

    As I continued walking, a woman walking towards me with a big smile on her face stops and says, "Did you notice that black squirrel over there? It's adorable!"

    "Yeah, I did. It's funny, I lived in Toronto for a while and they have tons of 'em there."

    "You know, I'm going to Toronto next week and I was just thinking, 'Is this a precursor to my trip?' It's so funny you should say that!"

    The end.

    Orlando's a city?

    ba-dum-CHING!


    Speaking of which. I've been working on coming up with a list of the largest cities in America.

    Now I know such a list technically [link=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_cities_by_population]already exists[/link], but it's only determined by the number of people living within municipal boundaries. We all know that in most U.S. cities, most of the population doesn't live in places that remotely resemble a city. They live in places primarily made up of detatched houses with large lots, shopping centers with huge parking lots, and multi-lane highways everywhere. No foreign person who did a thorough and exhaustive trip through America would return thinking L.A. is actually the 2nd largest city in the country. Or that Houston and Phoenix are the 4th and 6th.

    Some people trying to solve this problem might just look up population density statistics and order the cities based on that. But density doesn't always equate to urban, and those statistics are often skewed by virtue of city limits including lots of rural land.

    Instead, I've set out to order their size based primarily on urban form. Like; Does it have a strong downtown, and with few or no surface parking lots? How far outside of downtown does the city still look and feel like a city? Are the shops and amenities in the low density areas along boulevards and avenues with the buildings up to the sidewalk lining the street, as opposed to being next to highways behind massive parking lots?

    So far I've only ranked the top 12. At the moment I've decided they are:


    1. New York
    2. Chicago
    3. Philidelphia
    4. San Fransisco
    5. Boston
    6. Los Angeles
    7. Washington D.C.
    8. Portland
    9. Baltimore
    10. Seattle
    11. New Orleans
    12. Pittsburgh


    Anyone reading this, feel free to criticize and rearrange as you please.

    An interesting project. Some cities obviously have a more urban feel than cities with larger populations, but it is difficult to assign a ranking given the innumerable characteristics that contribute to "urbanness." Another issue, as you pointed out, is deriving statistics based on a city's geographic boundaries. The statistics for [link=http://www.richleere.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/MapBostonArea-BlueOcean.png]Boston proper[/link], for example, exclude data from neighboring cities like Cambridge and Somerville, which are denser and more "urban" in feel than many areas within Boston's municipal boundaries. They are closer and more well-connected to downtown Boston than many neighborhoods in the southern part of the city (this is because Boston was keen to annex municipalities to its south, but never annexed places north of the Charles River with the exception of Charlestown).

    An alternative is to base your analysis on statistics for the entire Metropolitan Statistical Area for each city, but it seems to me that there are wild inconsistencies in how these areas are defined by the Census. For example, the [link=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Los_Angeles-Long_Beach-Santa_Ana,_CA_MSA]Los Angeles MSA[/link] and the [link=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greater_Boston]Boston MSA[/link] are nearly of equal geographic size, even though common sense tells us that LA comprises a much larger urban area than Boston. As a result, the Boston MSA includes a fair number of exurban and even rural communities and its population density is nearly 3 times lower than that of the Los Angeles MSA, yet everyone knows that the core of Boston is more dense than the core(s) of Los Angeles.

    I think one of the best indicators of a city's urbanness is its walkability. [link=http://www.walkscore.com/rankings/?page=1]Walkscore.com[/link] does a pretty decent job of ranking cities for walkability I think, although even then, the correlation between walkability and urbanness isn't always perfect. But anyway, here's how their top 14 looks:

    1. New York
    2. San Francisco
    3. Boston
    4. Chicago
    5. Philadelphia
    6. Seattle
    7. Washington
    8. Miami
    9. Minneapolis
    10. Oakland
    11. Long Beach
    12. Portland
    13. Los Angeles
    14. Baltimore

    Pittsburgh should actually be ahead

    :rolleyes: Fine....


    Since maybe like the Middle Ages, there have been many differing opinions about


    hustle and bustle. This cannot be denied. It is my intention to sit down and play video


    games for several hours.



    First, moving around quickly, and with purpose, is a true sign of character.


    Secondarily, bustle(e.g. hustle) yields more product for the working types. ?Hustle and


    bustle are like my right and left arms,? said Li?l Spicy in his famous ?Hustle and Bustle


    Are Like My Right and Left Arms? speech. Webster?s defines bustle as ?excited and


    often noisy activity; a stir.? A stir, indeed. Finally, sometimes gross stuff can be funny.



    In conclusion, I, ?The Yellow Dart,? think I have done a great job illustrating the


    many differing opinions about hustle and bustle, may they both rest in peace. Also, I


    think Strong Bad should decrease The Cheat?s allowance.

    I don't thing I remember when it was a think, as I didn't notice this think until like two years ago. But I do have a few nice memories from those two years.
