    "Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Lol this is fun!

    I put Pasadena, CA rather than Los Angeles because I thought that might be lopsided and got this list:

    http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_...na,_California

    Notables:

    Richard Feynman!!!!!! (Ty caltech )
    Edwin Hubble! (Beat that bitches! )
    George Patton
    Robert A. Millikan!!
    Lance Ito (OJ trial judge)

    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    Yeah, big cities, and or cities with very famous schools will skew results quite a bit.

    So which city/town do we choose? The one we were born in, the ones we lived while growing up (and which one?), the one we are living in now? I am not about to list every city/town I have ever lived in.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    @ygolo ! The one with the coolest people! Duuuuhhh DD
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.
