Am I the only one who is sick to hell of those damn magnetic car ribbons? Man. Tacky. Especially those people who have about 17 of them (right next to their Dale, Jr. decal). How come people don't steal those things off cars, since they peel right off? Answer: because they're like dust molecules: they're everywhere, and they ain't worth shit.

I was thinking it would be fun to do a survey of bumper (and window) stickers. I was envisioning that you could walk around different areas (Walmart, downtown, a heath club, a tanning salon, etc.) and record which bumper stickers, window decals, and magnetic ribbons you find on which different cars (make, model, and color) from which different places (county, state). You could do all kinds of cool stuff like some detrended correspondence analysis to categorize people into sociological classes based on their sticker/ribbon assemblage (including an analysis of where they're from, where they're parked, and what kind of cars they drive). You could also map the occurrence of different sticker assemblages by state or county. I bet you would find alot these people at Walmart:

-Make & Model: 1995 Chevy Silverado
-Stickers/Ribbons: Calvin pissing on a Ford symbol, Support Our Troops ribbon, Confederate flag decal, and a big number 8 decal.

Anyone volunteer to help me collect data?
