    Makes sense that happiness is literally the next town over (going north that is) for me.

    A bunch of good maps on this site, as well as a video examining those regional dialect maps someone posted a while back. Link here.

    Here's some I like.

    This should help. Still, good luck reading the Balkan countries.

    Not sure what that country marked 'income inequality' is but I bet the U.S. is not far behind.

    Austria apparently leads in "Mohnflesserl", which we call "Mohnweckerl" here in Salzburg. In case neither term rings a bell

    EDIT: Also, if you're a single male, you should move to Estonia.

    Oh LA County and your annoyingly old buildings. (I know you east coast people will laugh at that).

    Also, the scenery map? Yeah, I agree that Kansas is suuuper boring.

    The happiness map... Santa Barbara for sure. That place is paradise... until you need something from Target or want to go to a stadium seating movie theatre :p

    I like how it goes to ****ing Orange County yet doesn't include the Valley as more than a side-note.[face_plain] Anaheim and Inland Empire are already pushing it.

    It's a bit long but very interesting:



    Another cool little map tool:

    http://worldnames.publicprofiler.org/Main.aspx

    Let's you look at the popularity of names in the world. I imagine there's some inaccuracy but it's interesting none the less. Also it's a little buggy.

    I don't quite understand what causes the variation. Yeah, the axial tilt of the planet and all, but that doesn't explain the squiggly lines. Mountains?
