Adam Carolla's Pittsburgh

Holy Cubic Splines Batman!  For the record something I only learned of from the vast Null Space peanut gallery, but it seems that Pittsburgh has made Maxim Magazine's 40 Best Man Cities. Seriously?! Seems unavoidable fodder for comment.

So take that Forbes Magazine worst place for singles... or at least some singles I suppose.

Before we get carried away though..  I really wonder if it is an artifact of our demographic of females exceeding males.  If it does, then I really wonder if they looked at the age distribution of that imbalance.  I guess I will need to study their extensive man-metrics, which is actually a tad bit intimidating. Might be a bit frightening if we are really ranking high on some of the specifics.  Whether those individual parameters are good things or bad things for a city or region is clearly a matter of debate. In terms of sheer methodology, I have to say their understanding of aggregation theory is actually a bit better than most fwiw. If you want to find the specific page on Pittsburgh, you have to scroll through to #8 for their brief, if annoying, writeup.  Nice picture provided them from VisitPittsburgh though.

I refuse to connect this to some of th public debates going on down on the 5th floor these days, but maybe Bram has some comments there.  It all really is kind of strange.  This was the town that for a brief moment had a 'Man Station' on FM.  It imploded very quickly which has to say something about the potential market for such a concept here.  Remember even John McIntyre had an evening talk radio program which does remind me that the whole station seemed a bit conflicted from inception.

Isn't that all more interesting than random discourses on yield curves?

Thankfully Pittsburgh's dismally low score for an embarrassingly small number of strip clubs (as of press date) must have been more than offset by impressive scores for binge drinking and public intoxication charges. Those few weeks of Carson Street saturation patrols probably pulled us ahead of #10 Chicago.

Speaking of binge drinking and public intoxication, is there some kind of rule as to how drunk you have to be before the 61c doesn't want to give you a ride? Hypothetically.
