There are 50 pages of me doing that, with Texans coming up with nothing more than the weak nonsense you came up with.

Feel free to read them while you brush up on how well defined the word "city" is.


So out of one side of your mouth you're saying the word "city" and what constitutes a city is not clearly defined, and out the other side of your mouth you can clearly define that Houston is NOT a city.


:bowrofl:

There's no single precise definition but I think that for a lot of contexts you could statistically separate cities from non-cities, including in the context of casual conversation.

In Europe, or at least the UK, there are concrete definitions.

A hamlet becomes a village if it has a parish. A village becomes a town if it has a market. A town becomes a city if it has a cathedral. Etc. I'm sure someone can Google the rest.

Because of this, there's a place in Wales that is literally just a street, but is considered a city as per their specific definitions.

Idk, I'm from CA and there are no definitions beyond self governed. City is just the govt level below county and run by a mayor. It can have s population on f 100 or millions

That has to do with England having an official state religion. Only one state in the US has parishes.

:roflw: 6+ months later and still no one but art_vw_shark can mount any sort of counter argument

This is the best post of this thread.

In which Jason inadvertently admits that his arguments are so insanely autistic that only art_VW_shark even comes close to being able to Rain Man his way toward Jason's central point, and even then he falls short of the level of crippling autism necessary to succeed. :rofl:

right so i mean not in that context

but then say someone is planning for policy or economic growth, that's a different context from conversation or the one you're talking about. i figure it *could* could be separated there too

There's a nationwide standard used by the department of education or something like that. I posted in there, but I don't care enough to find it.

What if Fazal is like the guy in Ex Machina and OT is really just a proving ground for his ArgueBot AI software in the form of Jason?

We have a place like this in the US.

It's called Houston. It's a really long street with few residents in proximity to one another.
