no thanks, I'll walk

Wherever you want to live, Walk Score lets you know what's within legs' reach. My place scored only 62 out of 100, in contrast to a benchmark downtown Capitol Way address's 92. Still, above average, walking-wise.

Recommended by PZ, who also points out that sharks don't have legs. As Demetri Martin might say, "I'm afraid of sharks, but only in a water situation."

Oh, and thanks, Josh, for letting me borrow your Demetri Martin CD.

Synchronicity off.

I believe that walk score is cool, but nowadays more and more people prefer to drive cars. Homes are often located in an area where some establishments are easier to get to by car than on foot. I've recently found a type of service on drivescore which is called Drive Score. It shows a map of what establishments are in your neighborhood and calculates a Drive Score based on the number of places within a convenient driving distance. It doesn’t mean that drive score is better than walk score – they are equal and both necessary in the modern world!
