Sci-Fi Fans Do It In Vancouver

I'm going to have that put on a t-shirt, and then I'm going to wear it at Comic-Con. ;)

And here's a tangent: on my Facebook (yes, I have one, I got it for Sanctuary, SHUT UP), under "Political Views," I put "Other." (Did you know there are more Vancouverites on Facebook than people from LA and New York combined? I wonder what that says about us.)

If you click on "Other" to bring up all the other people who also entered "Other," it brings up only Vancouverites. Okay, it only *shows* you nine hundred results because that's all its poor little brain can handle, but still, twenty-three random selections off that list on twenty-three random pages and all the "Other" political views are all Vancouverites.

We are an odd people.

I was trying to think of a Vancouver landmark that's suitably inferentially symbolic of the message to put on the above t-shirt, and I couldn't come up with one. Does that mean Vancouverites just are not adequately pre-occupied with sex or sex being dirty that we can't bother allocating the brainpower to make dirty jokes about our geography? Because I honestly couldn't think of a single part of Greater Vancouver that has those sorts of associations just on casual reference.

Well. Except Surrey. But you really have to have gone to high school here for that to make sense. ;)

The reason you only get Vancouver results is because you're a member of the Vancouver, BC network. While logged in under my name, if you clicked on my political preference you would get 0 results because I don't belong to any networks

Sorry.

This isn't to say Vancouver isn't weird. It is. But many, many people from all around the world probably chose Other.

Yeah, I hate to admit I have a Facebook, too. But it's handy now and then for MSU-y type stuff!

Vancouver symbol. Hmm. A dirty tacky wonderful used vinyl store below street level. At least that's always represented Vancouver to me!
