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.

Pleasant Plains, Tuesday, 25 March 2008 14:18 (thirteen years ago) link

I've tried, but there's too much guesswork.

It does make for a pretty good argument against the electoral college, seeing the states you've been to vs the actual part of the states you've been to.

Not a single pumpkin pie, get that map outta here.

pumpkin pie is an atrocity with the appearance and consistency of baby shit

Ok but I have lived in Virginia for 40+ years and never seen a lemon pie served on Thanksgiving. 8 years in Missouri I saw exactly zero blueberry pies served on Thanksgiving. Blueberries are not even remotely seasonal, people!

The pies they are not talking about are pumpkin and apple (both seasonal and classic). Of those pies, only pecan pie belongs in a Thanksgiving tableau.

Fourth of July? Sure, bring your cherry, key lime, blueberry pies. They are appropriate then. But not Thanksgiving, sheesh.

OK, but just go to the grocery store. They have food all year round.

I think "no data" sounds about right.

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
