Hey, don't diss El Vez!

I've seen him live in concert.


Relly? I envy you because you had to get loads of fun. How could I diss El Vez? He's the true King (don't say it loud).
FFF (further fun fact): on some punk sampler I got kicking around, I even have a song by National City-based first generation American punk band the Zeros... consisting of Mexican-American teenagers including the man later to be known as El Vez. (As well as the brother of Alejandro Escovedo.)

With the exception of Gary
Actually, Newark is far more of an exception than Gary. (Now... if the OP had referred to Jersey City...)

And in other news, people with Internet access are more likely to use Google than those without it.
Do you have any evidence to back up this ... startling ... claim?

That is... er... often the way with bibliographies... the point is that those are good choices.
Yeah, college kids cite the works cited in the works they quote from.

I need 5 more votes and Lewis needs 3 more votes so we can end this at 47-53.
I got my three. You're still three short of your target.

15  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Re: Jacksonville on: January 09, 2014, 12:13:07 pm
Jacksonville annexed its suburbs (though they have since spread beyond). So comparing city it with cities is not entirely fair. Anyways Atlanta is infinitely huger and Nashville is special (as well as not all that Democratic if you take the entire metro) and Charlotte is, apart from larger, also more of a real city. Jacksonville grew on tourism and retirement to an extent, so it has something in common with Fort Myers and all that sort of Florida place. Also a military presence IIRC?

Not that most people in Germany aren't aware of the concept of catfur gloves on some level, of course.

I guess if you're anti-pelt, then it would be outrageous, but what sort of anti-pelt meathead would purchase a fake fur coat to begin with? 
People who buy what their kids tell them to buy, I suppose.
Also, of course, I suppose if it were some animal we're more used to seeing furcoats of and less used to petting (sable, say), it wouldn't have been quite so newsworthy. Then again, I suppose sable still fetches higher prices in the commodity market than fake fur.

Ernie.


When I was five years old I insisted that people stop calling me Ernie.

And the one I actually remember, glad to see the post still exists

Ernie: ( I may call you Ernie, might I?)
Do I look like I have fuzzy cloth skin and a hand stuck up my butt?

Surprised. I expected a Tower Hamlets ward up there.

Tower Hamlets' most heavily Muslim ward (St Dunstans and Stepney Green, 48.7% Muslim) is only no. 41 on the list. Your surprise is due to the fact that even though Tower Hamlets' Muslim population is almost twice that of Bradford's (in percentage terms), Bradford's Muslims are heavily concentrated in a few central-city wards, while the (mostly Bangladeshi) population of Tower Hamlets is spread relatively evenly throughout the borough. Due to white flight and the legacy of post-industrialism, many Northern cities have huge racial, religious and linguistic disparities between homogeneous populations living in very close proximity to each other.

Yes.  Also, it's worth remembering that the "City of Bradford Metropolitan District" contains a lot of areas no-one really thinks of as part of Bradford: the Muslim population of Bradford proper will be higher than that in the district (even taking Keighley into account).
Someone come up with a reasonable definition of Bradford, London proper by wards. It might be more Islamic than Tower Hamlets.

thank you so much! very interesting, it looks like the more asian-american parts of the city (like the sunset district) trended romney, and the more LGBT inner city trended obama. cool map Smiley
It's not a trend map. Romney did better with SF's Asians than with SF's Whites, like every Republican presidential candidate since probably 1992, is what it's showing. It would be hard to do worse.
The same pattern holds in Manhattan - along with some of the poshest corners of the UES, Chinatown is where the relic Republican vote is coming from, but not enough to win any precincts there either.
23  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2012 U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: What Cities did Obama win in Wyoming? on: January 09, 2014, 11:37:17 am
Lolno.

As per the VRA... the relevant Native precincts in 2008...

Arapahoe 74% Native (69% VAP), 66% Obama
Ethete 85% Native (83% VAP), 79% Obama
Fort Washakie 87% Native (86% VAP), 76% Obama
The precincts are larger than the municipalities, of course, but there's no doubt who wins here. The only issue is turnout... and of course the fact that the de facto reservation(s) is (are) just a small portion of the nominal reservation. Which Riverton is in. Which in turn may actually be a factor in why it's so Republican. Wouldn't be an isolated case.
Lander gave Obama 43% in 2008 (winning one precinct, the northwest of town, although it was close and so were two others), so 39% in 2012 is realistic(ish - his percentage in the county declined just two points. Though there may have been increased native turnout). Brokeback Mountain City gave Obama 29% in 2008, so pretty bad, but definitely not 20-22 territory for 2012

These are some of the most militantly traditional / non-mainstream rezzes around, the home of the Sundance Ritual, and Shoshone especially is still a viable language. Hell would have to freeze over before they vote Republican.

You've mentioned it.

And no to the image. That's BK's line, not mine. I want slender, but kallipygic.

Hey Dave!

What is your opinion about moderators modifying hyperlinks in their picture gallery so that another person's signature has a picture of a big black penis in it?

Just curious!

Mechaman

Hi,
Such an even would clearly be inappropriate and falls under
If you disagree with a moderator action because it appears to be inconsistent with the guidelines, please contact Nym or myself via pm.

Was this incident a security hole in the forum?  or externally?

Thanks,
Dave
This incident was a lesson in what can happen if you let someone else whom you should know you cannot trust host pictures for you, and then show said picture in your signature. So no, not a security hole in the forum.

Actually happened to me once too in the early days of the forum - though without the "pornographic content" angle. But IIRC also with the "guy was a moderator", although I may be wrong about that.

(Ninja'd)
