The maps themselves don't have to be official, but this is the official place to put them.

Brasil, Spain, & Russia seem to be undercounted; as well, can't believe the U.S. lags Canada. (But, the question remains, in the Canadian figure, are they including Rush? As Klosterman wrote in his first full-length tome Fargo Rock City, if you ask Rush fans, Is Rush a Metal band, 80% will answer in the affirmative; contrariwise, if you ask metal fans, Is Rush a Metal band, 80% will answer in the negative.)

Yes, it is.

from NPR: In the seven days ended Thursday, 2,155 daily high temperature records were set in communities across the nation.

— In the past 30 days, there have been 4,230 such records set.

— And in the year so far, 23,283 daily high records have been set. Over the same period last year, there were 13,582 such records set. The number of records set, then, is up about 71 percent.

A classic. Saw this on Kevin Drum's original CalPundit blog back in... '05, I think... posted without comment/legend/header, just a query: what does this map represent? Everyone was thinking, It's a demostration of the fissures in Red/Blue America, but really, it was just about fizzy drinks.

Which are called Sodas, by the way. Eff that pop noise! (& that means especially the punk-rockin' feminist-studies-grad-student volleyball-playin' Northern Michigan native Britney Spears obsessive who was the co-host of my college station's top rated program POP NOT SODA.)

Strangely enough, I agree with Monty" "Soda" is the proper nomenclature.

I still say "coke," I guess. Everything else feels weird and yankee-like.

Unsurprisingly, it appears Dale & Rodney are moist... But, so are Mutty & Frostingspoon.

I can't figure out a way to embed this, but I LOVE the patterns that show up on this WIND MAP of the US: http://hint.fm/wind/\


Here's a STATIC picture of one day from last spring, but if you click on the above link, you will be taken to an awesome animated version of the wind pattern for that day (It is very zoom-able as well)
