Yeah, I disagree with a lot of it.
Agreed. I love fire ants. Thank you, Alabama!
I'm going to Hell for laughing at "Most avalanche deaths".
Yeah... hypothermia and suffocation are hilarious.
Sort of a stretch, but a cool attempt nonetheless:
What Pangea looks like with modern political borders (http://io9.com/heres-what-pangea-looks-like-mapped-with-modern-politi-509812695):
Lot of maps in here based on how Americans pronounce or call different things.
So much cancer in the northeast!
Yeah, it's been making its way around fb today. Lots of weird regional things on there -- like, water fountain, really? A water fountain is a flippin' decorative element, not something from which you drink water! Fools.
Heh, I actually say bubbler for that one.
Is this really a thing?
It's the South, harps. What did you expect?
I've never heard that expression. Obviously this means I must move to the deep south.
Interactive Unemployment Rate Maps! Good times for all!
Umm...I have never heard Ireland referred to as the 51st state...am I missing something?
Probably a reference to Deadmau5 being from Toronto.
You people call roundabouts traffic circles? Madness.
Well, there's a difference. A roundabout is a 4 way intersection where you yield to traffic already on the circle. A traffic circle is a circular shaped road with multiple intersections leading into it, all operated via traffic lights. Completely different things, and I don't understand that map saying that they're used to refer to the same thing. They're not.
In California (and Washington D.C. for that matter) we have traffic circles. I was just in upstate NY where they had a bunch of roundabouts.
Last place I lived developed a twisted fascination with roundabouts over the years. First it was one. Then another. Then plans for another. And another. Until eventually it seemed the solution for any traffic problem was to turn the intersection into a roundabout.
Yeah, they're getting obsessed with them here, too. They're awful.
