    Those savings and tax numbers are off by quite a bit.

    Gonna need more context because if that is in dollars I obliterate that 1200 number.

    I am here right now for work and have spent at least half an hour laughing at Zillow everyday while bored. The shoeboxes that sell for millions here are astounding. I love the city but good god is it pricey

    was talking with my boss who is moving down there in a month. He is getting faculty housing at Stanford for $4,000 a month for a 2 bedroom and was excited about the cost.

    My boss was the opposite. Lived with his wife and 2 kids in a condo out here. Sold it and moved to Austin and now lives in a 5 bedroom house on a golf course with an infinity pool lol

    A big restaurant company moved their corporate HDQ from California to DFW and into a few floors of our office building a year or so ago. So now we have Maserati's and Bentley's in our parking garage because they don't know what to do with all of the extra money they aren't spending on Bay Area mortgage payments

    It's a very shitty map. I guess I was just shocked to see it as the cover photo on a cop's page. If you look at his profile he's writing all kinds of fucked up shit about his analysis of the "Quran" too. This is what I associate the upstate of SC with -- intolerant, overbearing southern Baptists

    Alaska is crazy.

    I mean, I know it's not all ice and snow. The southern part is basically North British Columbia. It wouldn't have surprised me to learn Alaska had more forest cover than any other state, by area.

    But to be higher in percentage than California or Minnesota or even (just barely) Missouri? That's just wild.

    (Also wild: Maine. All those little Stephen King towns...)

    Have a good friend from Maine. Says the area of the state above Route 2, the area where the University of Maine is just above Bangor, which accounts for about over 3/4 of the state's landmass, is almost entirely uninhabited. Basically the vast majority of the state's population is within a 60-90 minute drive of the Atlantic coast.

    Picture spoilered for size. The highlighted area at the bottom is where nearly all of the state lives, the small part that sticks out at the top is the area leading to and where the University of Maine is. The biggest city north of that area is Presque Isle, which is where the pin drop is, and just above that is Caribou. Presque Isle is a little over 9,000 and Caribou is a little under 8,000. Both are shrinking. Of the 23 cities in Maine, yes there are only TWENTY THREE cities in Maine, those are the only two above the highlighted area from what I can tell. There are zero cities or towns in Maine with a population of over 10,000 above the highlighted area.

    My dad was born and lived in Maine until he graduated college. His whole family is from Maine. Was there every summer for two decades and it’s nothing but sleepy towns followed by dense forest.

    I once visited Portland in the middle of July.

    Jumped into the Atlantic Ocean, and my balls have never shrunk faster into my sternum, water was so cold.

    The bogs and the top of Mt Kahtadin are the only spots with no trees. One you clear Bangor headed north there is nothing. Love it there.
