    So apparently the world map for the new Pokémon game looks suspiciously like northern France. You can make out a Paris-like capital (complete with Eiffel Tower knockoff), some kind of church surrounded by water in the same general location as Mont St-Michel, the Breton stone circles, the Channel Islands, potential equivalents of La Rochelle, Le Havre, and other cities, possibly some of the Loire Valley chateaux, and an area near Paris that could have been inspired by the gardens at Versailles or Fontainebleau.

    aside from dallas itself, it only really dominates some very sparsely populated areas. i found it interesting that san antonio is mostly saints fans. also the location of oakland fans.

    I like how San Francisco completely eclipses Oakland so they apparently don't have any fans within a 5 hour drive. And what's with all the Pittsburgh fans in South Carolina?

    As much indifference as I have for the Cowboys, despite living here, they are popular in more than just very sparsely areas (outside of Dallas). They consistently rank as the most valuable NFL franchise, most valuae pro sports franchise in the country in fact.

    Whoh mesmerizing. I didn't want to blink in case I missed something. That sort of a map should be required for any history class.
