Areas where nobody lives, basically.

I wonder why the outline of North Dakota is noticable.

North Dakota tends to delineate things to ridiculously small levels compared to Montana and South Dakota. Similarly:

Generally telling people to kill themselves is inappropriate regardless of who they are or what opinions they hold.

Middle/high school algebra or real algebra?

I think the biggest problem with his post is that he said "a lot of women." What he said is true for x>0 women (and men too) out there; the "intersectionalist left" is driven by the martyrdom complex he talks about, and there are some self-professed people who have done what he describes. They hardly constitute a large population, though, just a loud one on the internet and on some college campuses.

It's banned in Washington, and I still do it from time to time. Probably not the best idea, but there's minimal danger in a lot of Eastern Washington. It only really becomes a problem if you devote the majority of your focus to texting rather than driving or are in a heavy traffic area. I don't mind it as a "you get in an accident, so it's an additional charge" type deal rather than a "pull you over on sight" one.

And who is Howie?

Former Republican state senator running to Rounds's right as the "true conservative choice."

It's very possible that they could. Most likely as a wild card, though.

It can be done well, but generally isn't.
18  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Re: Prop 8: Why did LA county vote Yes? on: September 24, 2014, 01:37:38 pm
Hispanics and Blacks voted Yes, and they made up 56% of the population. What more to it is there?

What's the big dark green precinct surrounded by brown precincts in the west-central part of the county?

A pretty much uninhabited part of the Santa Monica Mountains. In particular, it looks like the Westridge-Canyonback Wilderness Park and some surrounding areas.
19  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2014 Senatorial Election Polls / Re: AK: PPP: Close race on: September 23, 2014, 10:21:22 pm
Both PPP and Ras have Sullivan up 2. Don't really see how that translates to a "lean R" race, especially considering the quality (or lack thereof) of Alaska polling.

Nate Silver wrote that Republicans are historically underestimated in Alaska polls by an average of 7.2%, so if that plays out this year, we could have a Lean Republican race on our hands. Nevertheless, with Alaska's polling quality so low as you mentioned, we probably won't be able to say how this race will go with any degree of confidence anyhow.

Too bad they didn't include the 2010 Senate race where the Republican was consistently overestimated.

I've taken as much or more math than most engineers, so I'd certainly think so.
