I was thinking "Which Canada are we going to subsidize by being their outsourced military today?"

If you took the title off this it could be a good Late Night bit. The host could go around a mall and see how many people could identify which one was the right Canada.

Hm. It looks like we in the Chicago area get lumped into the Canada of Michigan and Indiana, instead of the Canada of Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Iowa.

I demand a Canada of our own!

It is ironic, since here in Cleveland we often offer Michigan to Canada and now we are stuck in our own Canadian hell with them!

Canadian hell is obviously the blue one that contains Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and half of Alabama. Ugh.

Well, in my Canada, we got room to spread out. You know... like Canada.

And not Chicago.


True enough. Even just the non-Chicago parts of Illinois, objectively terrible though they may be, are an improvement on Wisconsin and Minnesota.

You'll notice it is 10 Canadas, as the US has 10 times Canada's population. Canadians love to state how very different they are from Americans. One thing I've noticed over many years, for most any statistic, the 10 to 1 ratio applies. It's become a little game I play with myself to see if the pattern keeps up.

That's not to say that there are no differences at all. For example, our crime statistics don't follow the 10:1 ratio. Neither does our expenditure on the military, for example.

But, because so many statistics are proportional, the ones that don't, highlight themselves and become interesting points to look at.

I'd rather live in those places than PA or WV.

Alaska = 0.021 Canada
Hawai‘i = 0.040 Canada

You could add them to any of the other Canadas without being too far off.

Yes. More, in fact.


I think all colours are on that map although I could be wrong.

I feel feel sad for those people living in countries that only have 2 or 3 choices for voting (not even mentioning those where you have no choice at all...).

Although I sometimes feel we might have too many choices over here! laugh

This map is also extremely interesting. Funny that the US became US. You're so proportionate!
