  1. From Twitter: Watched a Brian Quick highlight reel on YouTube. Its was 1:40 long. literally 40 seconds was him running out tunnels. LOL
  2. Leonsis looking to bring more games to Baltimore: http://www.bizjournals.com/washington/news/2017/03/23/leonsiscaps-wizards-would-play-more-games-in.html Not sure that 10 games would entice Baltimore to build a new arena, though.
  3. Hankins is a guy a ton of people on Twitter are wanting. Word is he's looking for a big $ long term deal. But, the longer he sits out there unsigned, I assume the more likely you can get him cheaper. So, not sure if Redskins lack of interest has been $ or fit or that they just don't like him.
  4. Yeah, I don't know what a good number is. I just know that I often see people complain about the lack of new housing.
  5. Let's see how well a table can be pasted and posted here: State Population Permits Perm/1000 Utah 3,051,217 22,935 7.52 Colorado 5,540,545 38,393 6.93 District of Columbia 681,170 4,690 6.89 Idaho 1,683,140 11,476 6.82 South Carolina 4,961,119 31,356 6.32 South Dakota 865,454 5,464 6.31 Nevada 2,940,058 17,951 6.11 Delaware 952,065 5,768 6.06 Washington 7,288,000 43,239 5.93 Texas 27,862,596 162,323 5.83 North Carolina 10,146,788 57,090 5.63 Tennessee 6,651,194 36,864 5.54 Florida 20,612,439 113,912 5.53 North Dakota 757,952 3,968 5.24 Arizona 6,931,071 35,900 5.18 Georgia 10,310,371 51,052 4.95 Oregon 4,093,465 18,969 4.63 Iowa 3,134,693 13,806 4.40 Minnesota 5,519,952 24,263 4.40 Nebraska 1,907,116 8,108 4.25 Montana 1,042,520 4,086 3.92 Virginia 8,411,808 31,067 3.69 Wisconsin 5,778,708 18,706 3.24 Oklahoma 3,923,561 12,521 3.19 Louisiana 4,681,666 14,678 3.14 Arkansas 2,988,248 9,358 3.13 Maine 1,331,479 4,164 3.13 Missouri 6,093,000 19,004 3.12 Kansas 2,907,289 8,999 3.10 New Jersey 8,944,469 26,751 2.99 Alabama 4,863,300 14,471 2.98 Vermont 624,594 1,832 2.93 Kentucky 4,436,974 12,798 2.88 Wyoming 585,501 1,665 2.84 Maryland 6,016,447 16,925 2.81 Indiana 6,633,053 18,317 2.76 New Hampshire 1,334,795 3,607 2.70 California 39,250,017 100,265 2.55 Hawaii 1,428,557 3,375 2.36 New Mexico 2,081,015 4,856 2.33 Mississippi 2,988,726 6,900 2.31 Massachusetts 6,811,779 15,407 2.26 Michigan 9,928,300 22,426 2.26 Alaska 741,894 1,503 2.03 Ohio 11,614,373 22,269 1.92 Illinois 12,801,539 22,508 1.76 New York 19,745,289 34,387 1.74 Pennsylvania 12,784,227 20,761 1.62 Connecticut 3,576,452 5,341 1.49 West Virginia 1,831,102 2,525 1.38 Rhode Island 1,056,426 1,192 1.13
  6. It's not all states. A series of tweets here: https://twitter.com/MarketUrbanism/status/841515174355955712 Looks like it's based on permits of, I assume, all housing. Home permits per 1000 residents in 2016 (according to tweets) IL - 1.74 CA - 2.4 OR - 4.3 AZ - 5.1 TX - 5.7 WA - 5.8 UT - 7 Here's 2016 annual permit housing data by state: https://www.census.gov/construction/bps/txt/t2yu201612.txt . Should be easy enough to merge with pop data to get a per 1000 number.
  7. I saw a tweet recently about housing construction per capita by state. Let me try to find it. It's remarkable, at times, how little housing is built.
  8. Eh. Those scores clearly indicate rural living. I know this is the urban thread, but rural living has appeal too. It's the middle ground of suburban that I've grown to dislike. My walk score is 59. That has neither the value of urban living nor the appeal of rural living. I can walk to some stuff, but not enough. I can get to plenty of places in a decent time, but it pretty much has to be in a car. And I can't do more rural things like sit on my porch and see absolutely nobody for hours or shoot a gun on my property or pee off my deck.
  9. When I used DC Metro for work for a couple years, I liked the Transit app. Today, I just stumbled across this: https://gis.wmata.com/metrotrain/index.html. That's pretty freakin' awesome. My first thought was, "This should be an app." Then I found this: https://www.dcmetrohero.com/realtime-map. It doesn't look as nice as the WMATA one, but I read that they have an android app for their map. I don't have android so I'm not sure how that looks/works. High frequency, or lead headways, reduce the need to know when another train/bus is coming. But, since almost nothing in the US has high enough frequencies to eliminate the worry of timing things right to catch a train, technology like this seems like the way to go to help people schedule their commute or errands.

  11. Interesting Breer article: http://mmqb.si.com/mmqb/2017/03/16/washington-redskins-nfl-dysfunction-scot-mccloughan-dan-snyder-bruce-allen
  12. I used to listen to the radio while watching some, too. When they fired Herzog and hired Michael, I wondered if my dislike for the broadcast was just because it was a change and no longer linked to what I had listened to for many years. I have fond memories as a kid being in the car listening to Frank call games. But, I quickly concluded that the problem wasn't me disliking the change, it was that Larry is horrible at that job.
  13. On top of that, he's not very good at his primary job, radio play-by-play. Shocking that they can't find someone better to do the radio broadcast.
  14. Agree it should easily get done...assuming both sides want it to work.
  15. I heard Scot was wanting to offer Kirk a LTD early in 2015, probably even before the "You Like That" game. Sure, maybe Kirk would have turned that down and bet on himself for a bigger pay day. But, that doesn't mean Scot didn't want to do it at that time. The story is simply that Scot wanted to sign him and then he wanted to trade him. My only point is that both of those can easily be true.
