*The number of votes being cast within the electoral map

Let's be clear, rural vs urban is all about the electoral map. Good news is 2020 is the next census, which will change that map again. There is tremendous lore in America for what rural areas do, and don't do in terms of the economy (a GDP by county map is a great illustration to correspond to the electoral map)...but lore is just a story based in some facts that isn't necessarily true.

If it is biased, I'd say it's biased against hipsters; since I would imagine living in a bubble isn't a desirable outcome. It's just a fun little quiz, though; nothing clever about it.

Wasn't this test created by Charles Murray, you know, of "The Bell Curve" fame? You know, the guy who was chased off the Middlebury College campus a couple of years ago.

If anyone is interested, Sam Harris had a good (positive) podcast with Charles Murray about six months ago. A lot of people on the left hear his name and lose their minds. In fact, most of what he had to say in "The Bell Curve" was based on good science.

I'm going to see if I can insulate myself down below 10.

In a terrible fit of irony, Murray's education exceeds his intelligence.

He's got a perfectly good chicken that he'll never be able to coax all the way across the road, as a result.

Cheers,

I got a 25.
Probably because I don't watch TV.
Or have any friends.
And I prefer to cook at home than go out.

I suppose I'm "insulated" or "in a bubble".
I don't prefer to spend my time being lectured by people about how their opinion is the right opinion.
So I don't.
I have some finite but currently unknown amount of time remaining on this planet.
I spend it in ways that do not raise my blood pressure.

I goto work.
I'm at home with family.
And those two are as separate as church and state.

65. So my bubble is thinner than others I guess? Who has time (or patience) for all those obnoxious TV series?

Chain restaurants?

If that's mainstream culture I'd rather be in a bubble drinking Michigan brews and keep the money local by eating local. Only time I eat at those places is cause the kids want to go after soccer or volley ball tournaments.

I do like that peach iced tea at Applebees though.

Damn 12?

You must have never met NASCAR Legend Jimmie Johnson. I did once, well, I didn't actually meet him - - Just saw him across the bar.
