    Red face Map Porn

    I like maps, and the /r/MapPorn subreddit is a great one for interesting maps.

    From Google searches:

    "Original map by John Snow showing the clusters of cholera cases in the London epidemic of 1854. The pump {source of outbreak} is located at the intersection of Broad Street and Cambridge Street." This was one of the first epidemiology studies of the modern era in public health.

    David Wong, regarding Chicago
    Six centuries ago, the pre-Colombian natives who settled here named this region with a word which in their language means "the Mouth of Shadow". Later, the Iroquois who showed up and inexplicably slaughtered every man, woman and child renamed it "Seriously, Fuck that Place". When French explorer Jacques Marquette passed through the area he marked his map with a drawing of a brownish blob emerging from between the Devil's buttocks.

    Not true. He knew Ygritte.


    Also, note the first map, where it says Colorado is the best state.
    This just in: I'm accepting all friend requests too unless you're a fricken jerk and I can't stand your existence and inane drivel. If that's the case, then I'll accept your friend request so I can keep an eye on your ass unless you don't hold any interest for me; then only the threat of keeping my eye on you stands. feces

    And Massachusetts is simply the best. Yeah, it probably just says a lot about where narcissism breeds strong.
