And when will that be? October 21st this time? Has it been postponed to NEXT May?

He's NOT COMING. He's 20 centuries overdue as it is. He didn't come back during THEIR lifetime, and he won't be back during anyone else's. This is a MYTH. People don't come back from the dead.

Like the man said, there's only one "Return", and it ain't of the King, it's of the Jedi.

They'll say your math is screwy and share a good laugh with the Lord over talibangelical foibles.

Back to topic, my take on this is that the largest percentages (as opposed to raw numbers) of gay couples will most likely be found in where gay people retire, simply because the older ones are more likely to be coupled.

On the other hand, my guess is that when the proportion in a large city with a big gay community is inordinately small (this was true of Chicago in the previous census though I am not sure if it still holds), it indicates a larger than average number of gay people unable to commit to a live-in relationship, most likely due to internalized homophobia or fear that being in a live-in relationship will push them out of the closet more than they want to be.

Would be curious what others (not trolls) think.

Are your "pervert" neighbors schooled in the "new math" like you are?
