    You mean SE corner of Alabama? It looks like it might be centered on Albany, Georgia, which is the biggest city in that area. Not sure how the demographics of that city would play a role though...

    Yes, yes I do mean that. Sleep deprivation and suddenly I'm flipping states like mad.

    Here's a cool interactive map that shows the most common surnames in the US, colour-coded by country of origin.

    Here's a detail of the Northeast:

    On a related note, here's a site that lets you see the most common surnames in your area.

    Colours are related to origins of the name, I presume?

    I didn't know so many people in Cuba were Asian.

    Does anybody actually like the pop-culture maps I link to?

    Just asking, because nobody really talks about them.

    My name is rare everywhere in the world except in the Netherlands, where it shows up as 'high' frequency. I definitely looked like I fit in there, anyway :p

    I liked the BSG map. The Krypton one was okay.

    According to that depth, I think the surface of Canada is 130% snow.


    Also, you haven't posted your other thread [face_plain]

    A map of kissing in France. In red areas you can expect 4 kisses per social situation, in yellow areas, just one. The others are in between.

    Apparently nobody kisses each other more than 4 times on a single occasion, because that would just be silly.

    I could've sworn I'd already posted that map, but apparently not. It's just been in the giant map porn folder on my hard drive for a while now. Mmm...map porn...

    Anyway, coincidentally I just mentioned the bise in a blog post of mine. Another problem is that different regions start with a kiss on the left and others start with a kiss on the right, which leads to awkward situations when people, you know, travel a few miles to a different area.

    When I was in France I was told that they kiss 5 times in the region of Champagne.

    If anyone tried to kiss me, I'd tell them to man up and strong arm them

    Here is a map of the EU, showing you which countries are generally racists (grey) and generally not racist (purple)

    Are you sure it's not the caries distribution map? It sure looks like that.

    Eh... I dunno, "casual" racism is rife here in the UK. In the workplace, especially. Or at least at my old workplace.

    For any American history geeks, here's a quiz where you have to match an electoral map with its Presidential winner.
