Help With the Math

Just stupid today, I guess. Does this mean that nationwide, there are approximately 9.6 men for every 10 women?

"According to Census 2000, 281.4 million people were counted in the United States — 143.4 million of whom were female and 138.1 million male.   The former made up 50.9 percent of the population, compared with 51.3 percent in 1990."

"The excess of the female to male population dropped to 5.3 million in 2000, compared with 6.2 million in 1990.   This resulted in the male-female ratio (the number who were male times 100 divided by the number who were female) increasing from 95.1 in 1990 to 96.3 in 2000."

Because, if that's the case, I'm moving to DC.

It's 8.9 men for each 10 women in the nation's capitol.   I could get 1.11 women there as opposed to just .77 of a woman here in Vegas.  

And, with just another .89 of a woman, I would have a threesome.

But wait!   I just realized, Vegas is a resort town - so the population at any given time isn't accurately reflected in nationwide census stats.  

I wish the Census Bureau would whip up a "Most Likely to get Lucky (male) Map".   Now, that would be a good use of tax money.

It apears the sage advice 'Go west young man' resulted in a shortage of Nevada nookie.

Every now and then when your life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a bastard from Hollywood to Las Vegas ... with the music at top volume and at least a pint of ether.

That, and the occasional ranting about nothing in particular.
