Bummer, I wanted to buy some to burn on the 4th.

What kind of color scales goes yellow-red-green?

The Great Atlas Schism, maybe.

It's because Atlasia is on Boring Atlas.

I think limiting this to Governor and Senator (and perhaps Presidential elections) might be more relevant. The number of statewide elected offices that are partisan varies widely, but every state has a Governor, two Senators, and votes in Presidential elections.

Interesting. The IA-MO border certainly sticks out to me.

If all mods were like Dallas, we wouldn't need AAD.

Oddly enough, it looks like I haven't been infracted in years. Of course, much of our lovely moderating staff is convinced I am some sort of diabolical madman regardless.

There's a bit of (fairly tame) sh**t-talking but it's pretty much contained within two or three threads. There's a lot of cool stuff going on that has nothing to do with that.

There's no worse ****-talking there than stuff that's been here. 

Yes, Madeline, your effort-posts have been mocked, but hardly anything worse and by only a couple people.  99% of the place is just BSing around.

The only real difference is that trolling isn't a privilege reserved for moderators.

Really enjoying the current bitching about me on the "worst post on Atlas" thread. For the great offense of trying to have an intelligent discussion on gender, no less. Not really surprising though, coming from lowlifes like Bgwah and Sam Spade.

You hurted my feelings. Cry

In the spirit of Atlas Proper, perhaps I should report you to the mods!

This map has been on Wikipedia for ages. It's constantly being updated and always fascinating.
14  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Primary Election Polls / Re: WA-PPP: Walker leads Rubio, Sanders at 24% on: May 21, 2015, 07:52:00 pm
2008 Primary: 51-46 Obama
2008 Caucus: 68-31 Obama

All of WA's delegates are based off the caucus, and Clinton significantly under performed in our 2008 caucus. I could see Sanders winning, maybe.
15  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 Gubernatorial Election Polls / Re: WA-PPP: Inslee leading by double-digits, except against McKenna on: May 20, 2015, 03:02:29 pm
Hill would be the strongest of that bunch, IMO. Mostly just a name recognition thing at this point... But yeah, Inslee will probably be re-elected.

Very cool, and it seems more accurate than the ARDA map. How Catholic are you saying Hispanics are? I would have expected places like East Pasco to be darker shades of red.

Also, do you have a color key?

Hispanics in eastern Washington tend to be more LDS than in other places.

The key is standard Atlas shades (>20%/>30%/etc.) with Red being Catholic, Blue being Protestant, Green being Non-religious, and Yellow being Mormon. The grey area in Benton didn't have any people reporting an ancestry.

I'm just using East Pasco as an example, but it is around 85% Latino if I recall correctly, but you have it only >30% Catholic. That doesn't seem like enough. I'm not saying you're wrong - just curious what inputs you used and where you are getting this data (such as the LDS fact).

Are you using a universal formula for the entire country, or by state? County?

I am only nitpicking because I really like this, btw. Smiley

Balducci challenging Hague for King County Council seat

Hague has had some extraordinary luck running against sub-par opponents in the past. Looks like her luck is finally running out.

(this news is a few months old at this point but I only just noticed Tongue)

Is there any reason dollar bills can't just have rotating portraits? They're always changing quarters. I don't see why you have to keep one person on there indefinitely.

I don't really care about this. But it's not hard to figure out why no one really takes non-STEM academia seriously.

The real victims are her students who will find themselves 100K in debt just to end up pouring cups of coffee.

I'm sure the organizers and the Islamophobic crowd are happy about this. Just more ammo for them to trash Islam and Muslims with.

Yeah, who doesn't want their art exhibition shot up? Roll Eyes
