The Beer Belly of America and other geographic mischief

Beerbelly

I just discovered the wonderful floatingsheep.org, home to a whole bunch of new perspectives on the US and the world. My personal favorite is the Beer Belly of America, a map highlighting parts of the country with more bars than grocery stores! I love visiting Wisconsin and can well believe that they have a bar for every 1,700 people. A neon sign in Hayward advertising "Liquor & Live Bait" particularly sticks in my mind.

Nearly as much fun is their comparison of pizza, guns and strip clubs:

Also highly recommended are Baptists, Bibliophiles and Bibles, User-generated Swine Flu and Allah vs Buddah vs Jesus. I'm so pleased to discover someone else as obsessed with these sort of random but fascinating views of the world. Great work by Matthew, Mark and Taylor!
