I'm not the aerobics instructor.
@frumious bandersnatch Real big fan of Connie Willis' work, and I just started reading a Tana French novel and I'm already in love with it.
@Judith Slutler @georgina sorry to throw armchair diagnoses out there but perhaps he has a touch of Asperger's?
Yeah, I agree with Judith Slutler. Can we not call everyone that's slightly socially awkward autistic? Being a jerk doesn't mean having Asperger's any more than having Asperger's means you're a jerk.
If you have to be sorry to throw it out there....don't throw it out there.

I was never very social. Also, the picture looks nothing like me. FITTING.
@No Whammies @No Whammies Hey! Map person here. There's no field for username, I'm not collecting those. Not sure what is going on there.
@Cat named Virtute You're right. I probably shouldn't change anything else now - there have been almost 500 responses! - but you're absolutely right. I apologize, non-binary (or genderqueer, or similar) should have been an option. I knew I should include something to make it more inclusive, so I'm hoping that the write in field will cover anyone that doesn't feel the other fields are right for their identity.
Should there be future survey map things, the gender question (if present) will be more inclusive.
I don't mind the Heat winning because, even though they're not really my jam, it's not like the Marlins, Dolphins,* or Panthers are going to do well anytime soon.
*Actually pretty sure the Dolphins are going to challenge the Patriots this year, but that's neither here nor there.
@Gulf of Finland I met a guy in a bar when Ruff had just left who had all kinds of crazy conspiracy theories about the situation. He was basically a Lindy Ruff Truther. I would LOVE to find him again to hear what he has to say about this development.
<3 Lindy. This does nothing to raise the Stars from being my least favorite team, though.
Anyone from want to talk about Lindy Ruff going to the Stars? I'm a big Buffalo idealist/apologist but dude needs a job. I don't think this is anything close to him "sending a message" to the city but oh man I wish I was listening to WGR right now. Guess I'll have to settle for the angry screeds in the Buffalo News.
Yay! Fill out the survey! Give me all your data! In case you're worried about filling it out: the data will not be used for anything other than the maps, and it will not be viewed by anyone other than me (and MAYBE my friend who is also a cartographer, but she's cool). I also added an "Age" field because someone upthread pointed out that that would be a good thing to map and hey, yes it is! If you responded before that was added and want to include it, go ahead and re-fill it out, just make a note that you're responding twice in the 'free-form, go nuts' field. Also age/gender/free-form are not required fields, you don't have to share that stuff if you don't want to. No pressure.
also MY DAD IS BUYING A KAYAK. He has lost something like 150lbs just by swimming every day and eating better. He's almost 60. Total proof that you're never too old to get healthy.
