I find it amusing that jason makes sure his little NYC-wannabe of a home fits the arbitrary city definition Jason has concocted in his simple little mind, but places much higher in population don't even come close. :rofl:

Probably some form of compensation :(

so an empty city would be an oxymoron

like in the walking dead

in the coming apocalypse we should all stop calling them cities and instead call them "former high density population areas"

they aren't cities if they're abandoned and lose their boarders

You could call them present-day Houston, too.

if they're abandoned they necessarily have no boarders

most likely true, but if you abandon a city temporarily with the intent to come back (natural disaster for example) you could still call it a city if the acting government is still functional and the boarders remain intact with respect to the surrounding geography

whichever those are, there are real cities in TX.
the only real real real city in MA is boston. springfield :ugh: worcester:io:

You realize the entire area inside 128, all 30 some odd cities and towns, is half the size of Houston with the same population, right?

No, necessarily true.

It is impossible to have boarders without people. Boarders are people.

people define boarders, but people dont have to be present within the boarders for the agreed-upon boarders to remain true
