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 (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.

This map gives you a rough sense of all the ways U.S. land is used. Much of U.S. land serves specific purposes, such as the 2 million acres devoted to golf courses or the 3 million acres for airports.https://t.co/WkDPqg3rwv pic.twitter.com/FUfKYZhy2L

the walls of the sierra nevada and by the snake river on that map are cool

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

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.

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

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

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

Our official statement is "LOL."

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

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
