I'm not too sure what do you mean by "this city is 67% book" (googled "100% Buch" thinking it might mean something in German, but nothing came up), but this sounds so badass I kind of want to visit your city now to see the books.
we NEED to develop the Book Rating measuring world cities based on Book percentage. This is too cool and too fun to ignore!
(yes, still thinking of it instead of working)
If we were to devise a formal algorithm, we could then implement it using some public API to estimate the Book percentage for any city. Your city can be used as base for tests (it should always return 67%)
@saint-images I think the meaning is direct, like you'd say "this chocolate is 70% cocoa" (source: my city is also about 70% book)
pike's got it right, it was just a fun and hyperbolic way to say "there's a lot of books in this city", but I love this idea of a "Book Percentage Rating" (BPC) XD
I guess that the easiest way to derive our percentages would be to assign a certain amount of points to every kind of library/book shop/swap spot, add those points up, then divide by size/population of the city, but then you would disregard the books in people's home. Since internationally conducted surveys would use up incredible sums of money, we'd have to make an educated guess of average book per person by using
existing data, like maybe average income and average level of education to test disposable money and likelihood to read respectively, though I'm not quite comfortable with the latter, cause based on my experiences with grammar school kids, that connection is pretty weak ;P
fhdoiwfoiew XD ich weiß es nicht, es ist wirklich nie leise hier
sorry for the dead air. Would promise to start updating again, but i'm home for easter and just realized that I left my laptop charger in the city, so all this will have to wait for a week!
Sorry, just saw your reply (I don't think @ works on Neocities?)! I am actively NOT learning French, it's been that way for years...:) wish I knew Latin though. I'm studying law and it would help.
"Mr. Uncompetitive in the flesh" - yes hello that's me I'm listening. But the real question is, have you actually *learned* any Swedish in the app? I'm just wondering about the course quality of an app that makes even the best minds of Neocities go mad.
@saint-images Ja, hehehe. Svarar detta på din fråga? Dessutom, "de bästa hjärnorna inom neocities"...? Jag vet inte om det.
jk, that's just a deepl translated sentence lol. Though I am able to read and understand about 50% of it. That's about the level I'm at. If it was said by an actual swede though? 0%. No chance.
Congratulations, this definitely beats my own language learning effort, I don't think I've signed into Anki for a year or so : D Mais j'ecoute de Jacques Brel? C'est bon, non? Anyway, it's not about how many times you drop it, it's about how many times you pick it up again.
@pikemalarky sorry for the late reply... (°-°;) Thanks for the encouragement! (And, after translating your sentence, music recommendation<3) So you're learning french? I could've done French in school, but instead I chose latin, wich was - in retrospect - a dumbass move. It's a dead language, everything ever written in it HAS already been translated. Could have learnt French and still read the roman classics. Oops!
