@deepomega That didn't hit the Great Lakes region too much.
I'll take living in the Midwest, with plenty of drinking water and arable farmland, thankyouverymuch.
This will lead to twins marrying each other, men marring Wookies, and civil unions for droids.

Upon re-entry, the cosmonaut was hailed as a national hero, becuase after all, this monkey had gone to heaven.

"Once you've worked a restaurant, you can't be a dick to restaurant workers unless something of apex-level shittiness occurs."
Amen. You can tell someone's true background by the way they treat service workers.
That statistic seemed to be a bit off, so I actually read through the paper:
"Holding own income constant, a 10% higher county income is associated with about a 4.5% higher suicide hazard relative to the baseline hazard"
So,reading that, it seems like if you have an income that is 90% of the county average, your suicide risk goes up 4.5%. The press quote seems to make it like if you make $10,000 a year, when the rest of the county makes $100k, you have that 4.5% higher suicide risk.
What would be interesting to see is the delta effects on income - that is, do the suicide risks go up with those whose income had been forcibly lowered, or didn't keep up with the Jones', as opposed to those who had lagged.
