I've seen this map before and it blows my mind every time ....just thought I'd pass it along when I saw it today.   .........Yes, I'm a nerd.

Well yeah. China and India account for 1/3 of the world's population, and Indonesia, Bangladesh, Vietnam and the Philippines are all Top 15 I think.

Pakistan, the sixth most populous country, also looks to be at least partially in that circle.

I don't know why but seeing this map makes me want to have chinese food for dinner.  Totally random I know.

I believe the SEC players put their pants on one leg at a time like we do.

Hhmmm.  I am stumped.  So I will ask...what is Alaska's significance here?

I saw what is missing...and rightfully so.  But isn't the date Hodge cited when Alaska became the 49th state?  ...I was just asking if I missed the joke.

Alaska and Hawaii are missing from this map.  I see no other issues here.

Hodge beat me to it.  So you didn't miss the joke in the map, but you might've missed his.

Fair enough.  UVs for the both of you.

I'll give you credit for trying to hijack this thread, but it would seem that the next two posts after your contribution are trying to keep it on topic.

You're the one talking about red X's.

I'm guessing this is a treasure map?  Because all I can see is a red x, which obviously is marking the spot where something is buried?

I'm sorry Alaska, but that is garbage. Can't we count some of the Deadliest Catch guys instead? That's almost a sport.

Interesting that Indianapolis follows the southern trend of calling it "coke" while the rest of Indiana falls in line with the midwest and refers to it as "pop".  Also, what are do those in NM and NC call it that fall in the "other" category?

Map of the different dialects of the United States and Canada.  The website is really fascinating and much more in-depth.

The west and Canada are def close! The rest of the US is just a mixed bag.

Oregon is the only state with a picture on the back of the map - it's a picture of a beaver. Let the jokes begin in 3.2.1.....

There was a school nearby that had the beaver for the mascot. When girls sports were being played the announcer kept calling the team the Lady Beavers. Being kids ourselves I am sure we embarrassed ourselves as much as those around us.

In any event to the OP: I love maps. I am a nerd as well. There is nothing like a good map....except maybe for a Lady Beaver.
