POTUS45 on Metafilter - I may have got a bit nerdy

Okay, someone made a (possibly throwaway) comment in one of the POTUS45 threads that it would be interesting to see how the comments/content of the threads had changed since the election. I got my teeth into that, and after some playing with the HTML of the threads with VBA and Access, I now have a headache. As well as that I've got a database with 48 threads, 139,882 comments (including the posts themselves as a comment), 9,230,306 words, 2,193,898 favourites and 46,692 links. Some charts and stats inside. Let me know if there's other stuff you're interested in. [more inside]

I'll take "Nerdy Outings" for $1000, Alex.

Considering how many of us wear glasses, I'm pretty sure we should be fielding a pub trivia team here in Houston. Let's have a meetup and see how it goes! Maybe it will be a fun night of nerdery. Maybe it will become an institution. We'll never know until we try. [more inside]
