I also got 10/20.
 
The Starbucks point process holds a surprisingly large amount of geographical information.  (That said, I only scored 10/20, though many of my mistakes were obvious in retrospect.)

Readable over just a cup of coffee.
The human species' vexing combination of "sin" and "virtue" may be better explained by the two extreme evolutionary forces that created us.

The Standard is very snazzy and probably too hip for me. The free wifi is terrible, but free. Room is cozy but nice. Bathroom has one of those "is this really the shower??" configurations.

The room service menu is good, and the food itself is pretty awesome.

The view (of the Hudson, including Lady Liberty and the downtown skyline) from the room is nice, too.

"What, Hipster For A Day? It's a little consignment shop down in Soho. You've probably never heard of it."

From a "guess the place" thread +Terence Tao started, +Bob Felderman recommended this site.  I got 10084 points.  Not sure if good or bad.  Probably just average.

I topped out between 10 and 11,000 - can't remember exactly what. But it is fun.

Dude what does soda reviews (with a spittoon!) discusses further.  I didn't know that "doctor-type sodas" was a thing.    Virgil's Dr. Better Review (Soda Tasting #163)

Story
Introduction
I'm a creature of the early 1970s from the San Francisco Bay area.  I am unbeliebably lucky to be married to my high school sweetheart, since we graduated from UC Davis.  We used to be cat people, but somehow we're now dog people.  With the help of Science!, we ended up with 3 kids all of a sudden, and they're getting older at a rate that doesn't jive with my internal chronometer.

Professionally, I've worked at a university library, an internet company, a Silicon Valley startup, on a NASA science mission, and most recently at Google.

My hobbies include astronomy, long-term thinking and existential risk, video games and programming, fountain pens, and other stuff to boot.
