How smart is your city?

Seattle tops the list followed by that bastion of sin, San Francisco.

I'd like to see these cross correlated with weight and voting patterns.

What are you stupid? You want to cross correlate these cities:

Most singles (Bloomington, IN - are you paying attention, Aaron?)

Youngest



There's a town called "College Station, TX" ???

I guess it's not surprising that the Most Singles & Youngest closely correlate. Then depending on your tastes, you may want to factor in Skinniest and Hottest (to find the city with the least clothing).

Of course, if you move there then you're just going to be the pale, old, creepy, fat guy that skews 2/3 of the statistics... but what the hey, you only live once.

I think people get fatter and more conservative as they grow older, so one would have to factor out youth (Seattle and San Fran are young cities too) to see 'if being liberal means being smart and skinny.' (Mormons, for example, are highly educated and quite svelte.)

>> Raleigh, N.C., with its amalgam of great research universities and high-tech companies, tied San Francisco for second place for holders of bachelor's degrees and was seventh for advanced degrees, with 16.7 percent of residents holding one. <<

WOOOT!!  We're number 2!!

I'm actually surprised we tied with SF -- I would have figured we'd be around #8 or 9 on the list behind NYC, DC, etc.

It's pretty cool to be in line at the supermarket checkout and overhear people talking about their Java or .NET code.  The bio-tech people never talk about what they're doing -- it's too competitive.

College Station is the home of Texas A&M - The "Aggies"
