    Let's use Wordforge as a representation of the world once more and find out whether that supposed megalopolis has any citizens at all.

    Packard, you fool! A quarter of the world's population resides in greater Tokyo, here is the proof.

    Thank God that now only 9% of the world population lives in Tokyo.

    I admit this is an unexpected turn. I now envy Demiurge his better choices in life... Tokyo is awesome!

    Want the poll to be valid? Then ask in Japan.

    Too much of the food moves for my taste, and of course Suginami Ward is crowded as hell, but the Sanja Festival in Asakusa makes it all worth it. ;)

    I already ran the poll Tuttle suggests, and determined that 100% of respondents live in Japan.

    I refute that. I easily got packard's point; who better than he to argue from logic at the cost of sense to make a flawed claim and think himself clever and correct?

    WF is a reasonable sample for a lot of things. And, e.g., we have a higher proportion of pedantry than the population at large, too.

    And everyone who lives in Japan will not say yes to "Tokyo." Numnuts.


    Smug, superior, assholes are one thing. But wrong too? Tiresome.

    That's not a WF meme. That's just Tasvir.

    True, but Tuttle's been having some...difficulties expressing himself lately.

    :shep: Hope you've got good life insurance. :bergman:

    My Korean middle school students might tell you that there aren't any "people" in Tokyo, only monkeys. :borg:

    At least until the surviving colonial sex slaves and their grandchildren are all dead. :bergman:
