doesn't the usa kinda look like a musical instrument you strap over your shoulder

latebloomer, Tuesday, 25 March 2008 12:11 (thirteen years ago) link

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!

Curt1s Stephens, Tuesday, 25 March 2008 13:19 (thirteen years ago) link

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

Pleasant Plains, Tuesday, 25 March 2008 13:58 (thirteen 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.

i've never considered redrawing borders based on 'our weather is pretty much the same' but i love it

joygoat, Sunday, 7 February 2021 19:59 (eight months ago) link

A little miffed that the Norman, Okla., and Pleasant Hill, Mo. stations are named after the town they're in while the Little Rock NWS is located in North Little Rock, Ark.

The narkissism of little differences

Canon in Deez (silby), Sunday, 7 February 2021 20:14 (eight months ago) link

tbf the arkansas travelers are based in north little rock and are rather more grasping

mookieproof, Sunday, 7 February 2021 21:13 (eight months ago) link

lol @ silby

I envision the Caribou weather station as being staffed by caribou

baelien (Ye Mad Puffin), Sunday, 7 February 2021 22:17 (eight months ago) link

arkansas travelers are indeed based in arkansas though. we've had this conversation.

That is about the most stupid "analysis" I have ever encountered

Yes, we've seen the "Top Cities for BBQ in the US" @TripAdvisor map.

Our official statement is "LOL."

mookieproof, Thursday, 13 May 2021 17:03 (five months ago) link

Technically speaking that is a map of cities where TripAdvisor users have the lowest standards for barbecue

Guayaquil (eephus!), Thursday, 13 May 2021 17:06 (five months ago) link

That said, I have eaten some excellent barbecue in southern VA not far from Virginia Beach, very vinegary and not at all like the Texas style, dug it

Guayaquil (eephus!), Thursday, 13 May 2021 17:07 (five months ago) link

the cedar plank salmon in seattle is really hitting i guess?

depressing bump, sorry

Today, every state in the country meets the CDC definition of having high COVID transmission

This warrants an indoor mask policy in every state in the country based on CDC guidance

Only 7 states + DC have mask policieshttps://t.co/iem755dJxt pic.twitter.com/xdPCnqo3lI

ok, lemme do a quick tally on the states that decided to make it about their own state

1. missouri

2. nevada
3. arizona

goddamn

new mexico though. wtf!

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

Like, lose some weight, MO 139!

pplains, Monday, 20 September 2021 13:32 (one month ago) link

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

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Monday, 20 September 2021 14:25 (one month ago) link

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
