  1. holy fuck i thought i was a nerd (though all my knowledge is of the now non-canon variety)
  2. nicest leather i've ever seen in a car was a king ranch F150. only car leather that you might want for a chair in your library surrounded by leather bound books and rich mahogany.
  3. GOP Rep Ross Spano under investigation for "inadvertently" accepting $180,000 campaign contribution, er, loan. https://thehill.com/homenews/house/470561-gop-rep-ross-spano-under-investigation-by-justice-department Blames Democrats, because the GOP is the party of no responsibility.
  4. who could ever forget the words "We, the Counties of the United States of America, in Order to form a more perfect Union ... ."
  5. here's enrollment in elementary/secondary schools, it's barely budged. gone up maybe 10% from the mid 1960s. that's not enough to say that 28 killings in 1996 is equivalent to 14 killings in 1988. johnny's figures are starting from when the death toll had already ramped up. from 1970 to 1991 there were no years with 15 or more deaths in a year. from 1992 to 2019 there were only 10 years with 14 or fewer deaths in a year.
  6. i think i've had the same issue
  7. well ideally you'd be using rate and a moving average. again, the people you're relying on are using a single data point for noisy data. you can't do that. even using rate, school enrollment didn't triple between the late 80s and early 90s.
  8. it's not at all possible that 92/93 was an outlier year and a huge spike over previous years and so using it as a baseline is statistically bullshit
  9. remember all the claims that liberalism won't be able to deal with one protected class fighting another protected class?
