Would dead-set anti-drug conservatives smoke weed if they were then allowed to vote a second time?

In any case, thanks, Loren, for the laugh!

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on October 7, 2019 at 7:01pm

LOL, Loren. Interesting interpretation.

Maybe the "ELEV" number is actually those who are "elevated" (i.e. HIGH!, likely on the local weed) at the time of the census.

Hey, it's as likely an explanation as any!

I hope that foolish Cheyenne was not on a highway; In my driving days, I would have had to stop the car and check the arithmetic

Someone remarked at FA that if the "elev." is in feet, the "pop." would have to be doubled to get feet as well!

"The dangers of spreadsheets":

Fake highway sign, white lettering on green background: CHEYENNE / POP 59466 / ELEV 6062 / TOTAL 65528

(after DoctorDJ at Friendly Atheist)

And Joan, I don't remember where I found that cheesecake with the long expansion of pi. Turns out that among other places, it's in Wikimedia Commons' collection of Pi Day pies.

Grinning Cat, where did you find the longer number? 

Comment by Grinning Cat on March 14, 2019 at 12:54pm

Happy Pi Day (3/14)!

(even if you prefer other desserts such as cheesecake)

A man is engrossed in his smartphone; a giant tentacled 14-eyed cartoon-pathogen blob labeled SOCIAL MEDIA DISTORTIONS has swallowed his head. His wife/partner, reading a book, a cat on the armrest beside her, remarks, “Why do you think they call it ‘viral’?”

A wife asks her engineer husband, “Could you please go shopping for me and buy one carton of milk?  And if they have eggs, get six.”

A short time later, the husband comes back with 6 cartons of milk and no eggs.  The wife asks him, “Why did you buy six cartons of milk?”

He replied, “They had eggs.”
