    without looking it up, im betting the geology is totally different. I mean I’ve never heard about a northern France aquifer system before

    France and England are one piece of land that glaciers decided needed to be two pieces. Florida is a sand bar with delusions of grandeur.

    You were 17 for 22 (77%), better than about 87 percent of Times readers.

    I only got 13. I guess I'm terrible at generalizing people.

    I did laugh about the fact that my quickest answer was the one where it shows a corn field and I immediately clicked Trump (and was right of course)

    That urban/rural divide is insane. Even with small towns you get a lot tighter spread than farm and ranch country.

    I just went by how near/far the houses were from each other. If they’re close, Biden. It pretty much works.

    Net worth, not income. 66k is a cheap house with a little equity or a couple paid off cars.

    Just read the train monologues, it was fun. Anyhow, reminded me of something else I saw that was cool, which we will never ever have. I was watching a Youtube channel, guy is Russian. So they actually have car rentals there that you get with an app. So say you are in a city, you have your app which locates the closest car. Walk up to the car, confirm you are there, app unlocks it. Get in, make sure it has all the papers you need, the person before didn’t trash it and basically accept it in the condition. You can then start the car and go. You can pay by time/distance, etc. Once you get where you are going, you close the door, hit the app saying you are done and it locks.

    Never heard of car2go but Zipcar is an American version of that. We have it here in Cincinnati. Never used it though.

    Last year would've been the perfect time to finally grow that toothbrush under the mask.

    Just imagine that moment as you unloop one of the straps at the office luncheon: "Oh, we can finally take these off? Finally..."
