Awesome thread. I've been looking for that Australian overlay for years.

SOME STATES THAT GET THEIR BORDER FUDGED BY CARELESS CARTOGRAPHERS:

ALASKA - Aluetian Islands are frequently left off and misspelled.
ARKANSAS - Has two indentions: One in the northeast corner and one in the southwest.
DELAWARE - Is this really a state?
FLORIDA - That little part that juts up into Georgia a bit.
GEORGIA - See above
HAWAII - Oahu and three other little circles does not make a map of Hawaii.
IOWA - Has a sizable bulge on the eastern side.
MISSOURI - don't forget the boot heel!

Man, some of those old electoral maps look strange in today's context.

Pleasant Plains, Tuesday, 25 March 2008 13:58 (fourteen years ago) link

MINNESOTA - That little tic of a state park that you can only get to via Canada.
NEVADA - Has six sides, not four.
NEW MEXICO - The panhandle down near El Paso.
NEW YORK - Long Island, surprisingly enough. It's like the Tasmania of the Empire State.
SOUTH DAKOTA - Not a perfect rectangle, thanks to the Missouri River.
WEST VIRGINIA - Wheeling is not in Ohio.
WISCONSIN - Does not have an upper peninsula.

new mexico though. wtf!

Always like it when the state outlines use three-digit numbers:

new mexico though. wtf!

what's wrong with it? i don't think it's appropriative; that's the state flag and (as far as I'm aware) not a coopting of a specific native symbol.

North Dakota quite a bit more sus

I never decided if Washington's silhouette of George's head was brilliant or stupid but it was orders of magnitude better than the state flag with his visage

sorry, my computer died in the middle of this, i think, so i went to bed! this story is not that hilarious, i was trying to be tongue in cheek

cancun

it was like, 1990. or 1991 or 1988. around there. i was 5 to 7 years old? my family flew to cancun. it was the first and only time i ever traveled out of the country with them. i remember four things about it. first, in the airport in cancun, my dad and i were pissing next to each other at urinals, which was already weird, and then i saw a big cockroach in the urinal and was startled and afraid to pee on it. second, we were walking in some street market and a big older guy kept pointing at me and calling me a bambino. as i already knew that babe ruth had an AKA "the bambino", i understood this as a sort of compliment. third, i had orange juice and i didn't think it was good. my mom said it's because they didn't put sugar in it. fourth, i threw up all over the place on a beach, and then as we were all packing up and walking off, someone new walked up to our big open space and put their beach chair right in the middle of the puke

as specific as this post is, i wouldn’t be surprised if there are elements to it that form a part of a great deal of cancun experiences ^

in this version of our future, the united states not only faces rising waters on coasts, but also a growing fog of war that conceals with its arrival rather than illuminating, approaching from the northern and southern borders with equal intensity
