5/28    San Francisco, 24% very religious:
        http://www.theatlanticcities.com/neighborhoods/2013/04/americas-most-and-least-religious-metro-areas/5180
        \_ I expected Boulder, CO, being in the Mid-West, to be pretty
           religious.  Yet it's only 17%.
           \_ God damn hippies.
        \_ It says religiousity is negatively associated with "the share of
           adults that are college graduates (-.42), the level of innovation
           (-.45), and the share of knowledge, professional and creative jobs
           (-.35)."
           \_ this is published by a liberal web site, what do you expect?
              \_ This is true. If you just read your bible and pray a lot
                 you will come to a different conclusion.

        \_ The "religious-battle-in-ger" part in the URL is funny.  "ger" in
           Cantonese happens to refer to the male genital.

12/28   Looking for a religiousness density map based on county. Is there
        one out there?
        \_ Try http://search.census.gov/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&affiliate=census&query=religion+by+county
           \_ Public Law 94-521 prohibits us from asking a question on religious
              affiliation on a mandatory basis; therefore, the Bureau of the Census
              is not the source for information on religion.

12/30   Women on jdate look hot. Do I need to give up bacon to
        date them?
        \_ http://dilbert.com/strips/comic/2009-04-10
        \_ Don't know, but you may have to give up your foreskin to date them.
           \_ I think this is a deal breaker for most men, and why
              throughout history Christianity always overwhelms Judaism.

8/21    I'm trying to negotiate rent renewal and my manager came
        back saying she can't do that due to Fair Housing Laws
        that states that if they adjust price for one person
        they need to adjust price for everyone else. Is this
        an actual law or some bullshit she just made up?
        \_ Probably bullshit.

survey results recently released by the Gallup Organization. More than three-quarters of residents in this metro reported that they are "very religious." Three of the top five most religious metros are in Alabama -- Montgomery, Birmingham, and Huntsville. Burlington, Vermont, and Boulder, Colorado, tie for the title of the nation's least religious metro area. In these two metros, fewer than one in five residents claim to be "very religious." San Francisco and Boston also rank among the least religious metros in America, as only about one in four of their residents say they are "very religious." The most religious metros as well as states are in the South, while the least religious are in in the Northeast and West Coast. As Gallup points out: "The most and least religious cities generally reflect the religiousness of the state in which they are located, although there are some interesting exceptions ... America is a remarkably religiously diverse nation, and much of this diversity is geographically based. Residents in some areas and cities -- namely, those in the South and in Utah -- are two or three times as likely to be very religious as those living in cities in the Northeast, the Northwest, and other Western locations." Charlotta Mellander, I took a look at some of the key factors that might be correlated with religiosity, measured as the share of respondents who identified as very religious. As usual, I note that correlation only points to statistical associations between variables; For one, there is a close connection between religion and political views. Religion is closely associated with socio-economic class. Metros with lower incomes, lower levels of college grads, and working class economies are more religious. analysis here on Cities which found religiosity at the state level to be positively associated with political conservatism, poverty and working class economic structures, and negatively associated with political liberalism, knowledge workers, and college grads. Politicos on the left and right like to explain religious voters' proclivity purely in terms of values. But this misses a central point - that religion is inextricably bound up with the nation's underlying economic and geographic class divide."
