Haven't done this in a while…..

Who are your top five most likely people to go all the way and win the US presidency in November 2016?  (ranked list, from most likely, #1, second most likely #2, etc.)

I imagine that Hillary Clinton will be at #1 in almost everyone's list, but curious to see what it looks like after that.

Not a doctor... high school coaches do this stuff. But I call BS that it's actually at 3. That may be the color of your toilet water post-urination, but that means your actual urine is much darker.

No, it's actually a 3.  I just looked at it a few moments ago.  Occasionally it may be a 4, but it's normally a 3.

A few months ago?Huh Don't you go several times a day?

FAIL

Hate to use a pun here, but your argument just got tinkled on...

I'm going to start using "Your argument just got tinkled on" in casual conversation.

Inks, I'm going to have to ask you to take an intoxication test, as you seem to be drunk posting.

First step: What color is your urine?

Dude, do you ever go outside, take a block long walk, get fresh air, talk to people?  Do you have 1 friend there yet outside of work?

That's a good point.

Bushie, even if you're not ready to look for another romantic partner just yet, what about just socializing with more people?  Surely with meetup.com or something, you can find some social activity that you're interested in?

Wait a second...that's BRTD on the right?

Weird, huh?  I always pictured him as a red map of Minnesota.  Surprised to see that he has hair, eyes, a mouth, a nose, etc.

Well, I certainly pictured him a lot differently from how he actually looks.

Me too!  (as noted above)

The Iraq War would be over, but there would be significant remaining troops in the area. Withdrawal in Afghanistan would not have been telegraphed to the world, so the Taliban would not as strongly be waiting in the wings. Rebels would have been armed in both Libya and Syria. Assad would probably be on his way out. There would have been tougher and more immediate sanctions on Russia.

Um, what?

Some potential 2016 rivals — Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and Texas Gov. Rick Perry among them — have all but launched presidential campaigns. Ryan instead seems squarely focused on laying the groundwork to pursue major legislation when he's slated to take over the House Ways and Means Committee in January.

That sounds a lot like a detour from the road to the White House, at least for now. While it's traditionally referred to as the powerful Ways and Means Committee, the panel hasn't exactly proved to be a national springboard. The last chairman to win the presidency was William McKinley, in 1896, and he had served as governor of Ohio in between. (No House Budget chairman, Ryan's current post, has ever won the White House.)

"I am just not one of those people who want to spend two years flying around the country trying for another job when I feel like I have an important one to do right now," Ryan says. "I'm really a policy person focused on ideas and policies and outcomes." The book jacket touts him as "the intellectual leader of the Republican Party."

Doesn't sound like he's running, based on that.  Or at least, not right away.  That idea that was floated some time ago, that he might serve as W&M Chairman for 6 months, and then jump into the presidential race in the summer of 2015 if there's a big opening, might be plausible.  Problem with that is if his good friend Scott Walker decides to run first.

I can do spaghetti after recalling the steps.

After recalling the steps?

You've regressed since 2011, when you said "I know how to cook a little bit, and I'm going to try to get my mother and grandmother to teach me more dishes.  Right now, my specialty is spaghetti.  I can fix spaghetti pretty well without too much trouble."

Also, what happened to this?:

I'll be honest, I haven't used my oven or stove yet in my new apartment, but I plan to eventually.

Have you done so yet?


I have not, yet.  I need to get to Walmart to get something to cook.  That likely won't happen until at least this weekend.

Of course, you just said:

I don't have anywhere else I have to go tonight, so I'll be able to relax quite nicely and go to bed at a normal time.

So why not just go to Walmart tonight, and then have something to cook for dinner this coming week, rather than wait for the weekend, which is five days away?

121  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Re: Where We Come From, State By State on: August 17, 2014, 09:48:07 pm
On a related note, are there any statistics as to the breakdown of those born in the US by state (in other words, how many Americans were born in New York, California, Texas, etc)?

Born in the US or born in a particular state?

In fact the maps reveal both of those informations.

I wanted to know the former, and I didn't see that listed anywhere. I would imagine that more Americans were born in California than any other state, although I'd also guess that New York would be very high as well (probably second to California). To make it more clear, I'd like to know the number of Americans by state of birth. According to the 2010 Census, about 270 million Americans are native born. I'd like to see that number broken down by state of birth.

This is the same question I posed in this thread:

http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=190254.0

And using migration data from 2009, my best guesses on the top 5 states by place of birth were:

1) CA
2) NY
3) TX
4) IL
5) PA

I could have gone farther, and tried to reconstruct it for all 50 states, but I wasn't that motivated.

I'm home from a good Evening Service.  I'm watching the Chiefs vs. Panthers right now and will watch Big Brother at 2200 on DVR.

If you have a DVR, can't you flip back and forth between the two shows during commercials?  Do you really need to sit through the commercials on the football game?
