    no it's cobbler

    oh man this sounds exactly like the kind of conversation chat loves

    buckle up boiz

    I subscribe to the patently incorrect view that the only difference between pie and cobbler is shape.

    Victoria is very pretty
    Moana is an adorable movie
    I have been informed that LGBTQ is now properly LGBTQIA so now I'm a little more progressive because being progressive is a series of trivia challenges

    Of course the base economic reasons are pretty obvious. Centralization of production and so on.

    But then when you think about it, a lot of modern urbanization was about the industrial revolution and industrial work. As we move towards automation and needing fewer people to keep a city running will there be a possible reversing of the current course? As there will be less need for the centralization of a work force as a major driver for populations collecting into a single space.

    I just read the other day that the trend is projected to continue

    I guess today about half of the world's population lives in cities -- projected to increase to 70% by 2050

    I wonder if that's the case in more developed countries though

    we need to develop a second electoral college to further protect us from the looming threat of cities

    LA is one of the largest cities in the US. You are a megacity.

    Also I was looking at a census presentation from 2010 showing the differences from 1940 to 2010 in pops.

    In 1940 there were no cities over 500,000 in Texas or most of the West. St. Louis did have over 500,000 though.

    In 2010 Texas has multiple cities but St. Louis is below 500,000 in the city proper.

    Population shifts!

    here's what is gonna be the real hard decision: the damage is mostly to the screen, but there are a couple of small but rough-feeling, nasty looking dings on the case

    And I think I'm gonna have a choice between being financially responsible and replacing the screen ($30) or being a shallow spendthrift and fixing the whole phone ($100)

    It still is in the US at least. We have been constantly urbanizing through a lot of our history.

    Though a lot of these studies and models, I worked with one in grad school, take a lot of assumptions on economics and technology moving and working a similar fashion.

    If you remove the economic incentive of urbanization will we as a species continue to urbanize?

    Though I would say the shift backwards, if it occurs, will probably be after we are dead and more in our grandchildren/great grandchildren's lifetime when we are in a much more automated society and some of the social upheaval of that is settled.

    I was already discussing this earlier.

    Though even if you add in the NYC metro area to it Karachi I think is still slightly bigger. I know Tokyo and Shanghai still dwarf NYC. Wiki uses the ~20 million estimate for NYC metro which is still smaller than some of the other major city metros like Delhi or Shanghai.

    Quick googling shows NYC is 14th.

    in economic area sure. But even the large parts of the outer parts of the boroughs are pretty dang suburban.

    LA is the second largest metro area in the US.

    Add LA and NYC together about 1 in every 10 Americans lives in either of these two metro areas.

    Maybe more like 1 in 11.

    Which is really nuts.
