The third "related to" link is a bit broken: points to a Google redirect instead of the article itself.

Yes.

I mean, all of them. Thank you for asking.

It's probably not a coincidence that those two you mentioned and many other Schelling points are currently in San Francisco, is it? Though I'm not there, I don't know what other specific groups this applies to.

I was actually thinking of Patrick Collinson's advice to travel to SF. He called it the "Global Weird HQ". And of one of the Samo Burja's short videos that I unfortunately can't find right now.

Could this be the thing that will finally push the San Francisco's Schelling point away from SF?

Went down the rabbit hole reading all of Hein's poetry, found this gem:

Original thought
is a straightforward process.
It's easy enough
when you know what to do.
You simply combine
in appropriate doses
the blatantly false
and the patently true.
