Tangent but IIRC "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" was mostly shot in Cleveland but seems convincing-ish as a DC movie...to me, who has barely been to DC...
As was the first "Avengers" but I think they used some then-innovative immersive CGI to make it seem like our heroes were jumping around Midtown.
I have several repetitive threads about my fascination with movie locations and how they create "places that don't exist".
Like "an NYC full of alleys", or, Liz's "suburban Queens" house that's actually in Atlanta in "Spider-Man: Homecoming".

New post on revisiting the famous post-2016 "economic issues vs. social issues" scatterplot.
You have probably seen this chart over the last four years. I like it, and the analysis it's from! But what I don't like is how, because the chart itself is not very annotated, people can and do read whatever they want into it. Image
Like you'll see people say, I don't know, "Democrats lose because of pronouns, and my proof is, this chart". The chart does not have anything to do with pronouns, but it IS a chart.

Interesting how political knowledge is so uniform by party...age and education effects cancel out?
Is "risk-aversion" the relevant difference? It sounds more like "trying to maximize your score vs. trying to maximize the honesty of your answers".

If politics is going to be "post-materialist" then we may as well poll sexual and aesthetic preferences and such.
Like, include clips of three songs and ask which one they liked best. Or tell three jokes and record which ones got a laugh.

Rewatching "Age Of Ultron" and it's amazing how you can tell what a messy production it was from like literally the first few shots.
The action is good but it's like "we open...somewhere, on our heroes fighting...whoever".
And if I was playing a drinking game of "spot the likely ADR banter" I'd be dead. It's two minutes in.

IDK about this as a bellwether for the following year.
Is there any research on how well-correlated "nonpartisan in name only" elections tend to be with partisan ones?
Actually when is the last time the D-aligned candidate did NOT win Wisconsin Superintendent Of Public Instruction? (It looks to me like Herbert Glover, John Benson, Elizabeth Burmaster, and of course Tony Evers were the "Dane County" candidates...)

I say, let him be king for one day like Rebecca Felton.
Does Charles get that when he's King his life will be the same boring slog as now but with one extra meeting a week.
(One extra meeting, probably with Boris Johnson. Oh to be a fly on the wall...I guess.)
