Sure, just like pretty much every declaration ever. Still would be a consensus.

I think we can all stipulate that Chicago exists on a higher level than does Minneapolis in the hierarchy of US cities. The question as to which of these two cities is "cooler" is entirely subjective, depending upon how one defines a cool city.

The real question, however, is how that could possibly relate to a comparison between Minneapolis and Portland.

Cheese Plate seemingly makes a living pointing out why Minneapolis isn't as great as XYZ city, whether it's relevant or not.

I realize that some people don't like reading more words than necessary, so here's the specific thread:

I have no idea where you ever would have gotten that idea?? I like the Twin Cities, and Minnesota in general. Just don't think it's "the coolest gol-darn town in this here Midwest" like some of its inhabitants (who clearly need to get out more). Chicago is the alpha, and nothing in the region comes close. On its own merit, Minneapolis is very nice.

I also pointed out how ridiculous the original comment about the West Coast was, and I personally find Minny more attractive than Portland, though I have an overall favorable opinion of both.

My point is that you are the one who introduced Chicago into the conversation!

No, I don't understand why you brought Chicago into a thread in which the OP asks for a comparison between Portland and Minneapolis.

It's a pretty obvious progression, and I'm afraid I'm unable to spoon-feed you any further than I already have

No spoons necessary. You, yourself, quoted the progression of posts. Go back to look at them. Others were discussing Minneapolis as it compares to Portland. You entered the thread with an irrelevant comparison between Minneapolis and Chicago.

Had the thread been: "Which city is cooler, Chicago or Minneapolis?", your post would have been on topic. As it as, there can be little doubt that you just wanted to take a swipe at a city you dislike by comparing it to a much larger city which hadn't previously been been a part of the discourse.

It is what it is. You took the thread off-topic by introducing a completely irrelevant factor. If you want to obtusely maintain the contrary, go for it!

Sounds good, Mom. The thread had a very logical progression - "no place in the Midwest could be cool," "Minneapolis is not your typical Midwest city," "well, Chicago is in the Midwest and cooler than Minneapolis," etc. Conversely, the thread isn't at all about me, but you're focusing on me and derailing it. Are you going to send yourself to bed with no supper for that one, or do your "rules" only apply to others?
