The US Mean Center of Population....Where would it move to if instead of every person being weighted equally, everyone were weighted according to... A) body weight B) net worth

"the point at which an imaginary, flat, weightless, and rigid map of the United States would balance perfectly if weights of identical value were placed on it so that each weight represented the location of one person on the date of the census."

I'm pretty sure body weight would bring the center back east.

I think net worth would also.

That dåmned Wealth Gap that SIO always complained about is growing again. http://www.pewsocialtrends.org/2013/04/23/a-rise-in-wealth-for-the-wealthydeclines-for-the-lower-93/ trying to find a map that shows net worth by geographic area

It'll continue to grow as long as the federal reserve continues to inflate. Some of the gap is of course natural.. different levels of skill and drive. But it is grown artificially by the Fed.

...and by corporate welfare that allows corporations to grow their bottom lines for the benefit of a very, very few.

I had always heard that a bell curve was a sign of a healthy economy. not sure if that's true.

Net worth I'd imagine would move it northeast, body weight not sure, maybe more south and east, no clue. I wonder how you'd program some formula to figure both of these out semi-accurately.

I'm changing "body weight" to BMI or equivalent in order to capture the Honey Boo Boos.

The thought of a Festivus Pole makes me miss Firecracker.

I had a Festivus pole a couple years ago instead of a Christmas tree. Kids thought I was nuts.

because it's not nuts to cut down a tree, drag it into your house, and hang pretty decorations on it, only to drag it back out three weeks later and toss it in the woods. lol

If the eggnog was spiked, I may be forced to reconsider my views on religion. Maybe there was something to this Jesus fellow...
