Randoms of the day

AMcGuinn explains his support for secure and absolute rulers.

Move to where the white people are.

David Foster on education.

Patri points to an analysis of USG. They analyze USG as if it were a corporation (i.e. they use honest accounting) and find that its bankrupt. Obviously this sort of analysis is nearly impossible, but the report is interesting.

    Census 2006 pegs Vancouver at <a href="http://www40.statcan.gc.ca/l01/cst01/demo53g-eng.htm"47.1% 'visible minority' (non-white, non-aboriginal) and aboriginals at just under 2%. That leaves whites with a razor-thin majority.

    Once more, with proper html.

      Most of the “visible minorities” are East Asian with a pretty good number of South Asians. There is also a noticeable absence of Blacks (about 1%) which certainly doesn’t harm the “livability” of the city.

    • Foseti says:

      Yeah, but everyone else is Asian – they’re whiter than white people.

    The “best cities” list is almost too funny from an HBD perspective. The top ten and bottom ten validate every stereotype.

    Detroit is more livable than Boston, Seattle or Minneapolis? I don’t like rain and cold either, but they sure beat living next to abandoned houses full of broken glass and hypodermics. I think there is a problem with the algorithm.

    F-ing scientism. God forbid compiling a list as insignificant as this leaves any role for actual human judgment. That wouldn’t be scientific, which means it would be official.
