VT's A-B elitism is absolutely getting worse.

I've done 1400 events. I know what people know and what people don't know. Nobody's an idiot at trivia...anybody can be good if you find questions that are answerable for them. But by and large, I've found most players overall in the ritzier parts of town aren't the best trivia players. Those are found not even in Allston-Brighton, but in Cambridge.

Wait. The North End is considered a ritzy part of town?

I think VT is on to something here.

A/B and Cambridge geeks and hippies with nothing better to do than pick up useless trivia knowledge.
Back Bay, ritzy area with people too busy making money to spend their time on useless trivial knowledge.

Show me a three figure studio apartment over there, and I'll retract my statement.

Same here. He truly is a gem and probably doesn't realize it.

- Rental Real Estate is priced by location first, size, amenities, etc. fall in line behind it.
- You can indeed find a 1 room in the North End for 900 or 950 a month. But it'll be a closet.

Seems the cost would have something to do with location and the lack of need for a vehicle cancels out the extra cost right?

Not needing a car is a big part of it. People can justify paying a bit more if they know they don't have/need a car to get to work/bars/clubs/the gym/the T, etc.

You've been to my place, and if that apartment was in, say, Melrose, the rent would be at most 2/3rds of what it is now.
