Two great maps I saw tonight
By skreidle, via thebitingfaery, via sebatical:



From BB:


The latter is a really cool idea, that I wish more people could see.

For those who didn't reserve a spot on graye's couch, more of his kin are willing to help during this time of utter insanity.

From celaeno, Some Netscape web monkey declares our president an asshole in a file name announcing the end.

And in other news, I shook Ron Jeremy's hand and got a picture with him tonight. While he was being introduced, it was announced that he was born in New York. hiphopatcong said he was born in Lake Hopatcong according to some rumors, so I asked him about that after posing with him. He noted that he was born in New York City, but that his sister lived there, which probably lead to the rumor. So there you go, hiphopatcong!

And you don't have that picture to post here?

Not yet...

I borrowed the camera caniswolfie uses to photograph user damage to take the shot. kikibird, runstaverun, and jenniever were waiting for me. So I just had time to drop the camera off in our office, and will have to throw it on my F drive and make a thumbnail of it tomorrow.

It was a good debate, despite some really stupid questions asked by a few students. There were some excellent points made, some painful moments, and some hilarious moments.

Re: Maps!

Christ, it makes the place look like it's come down with some horrible disease. I'd have those red spots checked out.

Wow

That's really fascinating. It seems Democrats like civilization, the Mississippi, and the ocean.

I'm not as familiar with specific counties in many states outside of the tri-state area, but that is a really interesting map that I'm going to study further when awake.

Re: Wow

actually, it seems that democrats tend to live around other people, and republicans don't.

That's what I meant by civilization.

There's another map I'm about to post that really illustrates that point even more.

Re: Maps!

What is in southern Texas? I was wondering that when I was watching the county breakdown on cnn.com last night.

Re: Maps!

I'd guess the answer would be "immigrants" who don't seem to have a happy home in George's heart.

Re: Maps!

well, according to this map, it's one of the poorest sections of texas. This map helps make clear that area code 956 is sure to get crappy phone service for the next four years.

I said Ron Jeremy was from Hopatcong, not Lake Hopatcong. Which one did his sister live in?
From: utini2 Date: November 4th, 2004 01:51 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
C'mon, Doug!

I think it's time for a new tune by now!

It's basically just one town anyway, right?

One lake, many towns.

As a respected staff member at a prestigious university I would expect you to know your geography better.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: November 4th, 2004 10:19 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
To be honest, I don't remember which town I named. I know you're from Hopatcong, not Lake Hopatcong, but I didn't remember which one you said he was from, so I'm pretty sure I said ``around Lake Hopatcong'' to refer to the region instead of the individual towns.

But his sister is/was there, and he's been there, so there's some link there after all! Rejoice!

Oh yeah...

What's up with your county?
