I attribute my own "pick-AHN" pronouning to going to the Walnut Valley Bluegrass festival (Winfield, for those in the know) every year since i was young and everyone calls one section of the campgrounds the "Pecan Grove"  there being a bunch of Okies at this particular festival, it must have rubbed off.

team pick-AHN here. Pretty amazing how the map hits pretty much where I grew up and the area where my grandparents lived in Oklahoma where they made us pick up pecans when we visited.

St. Louis is over the top about calling it soda.  Places will act like they have no idea what you want when you order "pop."  They know, they are just jerks.

That map is like bright red over St. Louis...little "soda" capital of the Midwest.

I say soda for the most part, but I ALWAYS say "pop" in St. Louis.  eff those assholes, man.

People who say soda and live in the midwest are trying to hard to not be white midwesterny. Just embrace it sometimes. I mean, you're drinking a pop, call it whatev you want it still ain't classy.

The Tenderloin? Ha ha, that place is rough ridin' crazy and like right adjacent to Union Square. I was walking through there a month or two ago and saw a crackhead just messing around with a gun on a corner. I couldn't tell if it was real or not, but I kept walking.

My 30 year old parents had put us kids to bed and were out on the deck conversing with their friends.  All of a sudden they heard me screaming, "KILLER!  HELP, IT'S A KILLER!!"  They ran inside and upstairs, and apparently there was a moth on the ceiling that I was deathly afraid of, and also thought it was called a killer instead of a miller.  :D

I haven't read the thread for a while, but if you like maps and linguistics, you should definitely spend 3-4 hours here:

It's hard to read, but once you get the hang of it, you'll never want to leave. It's just a dude who loves maps and linguistics who watches a ton of youtube vids and does a bunch of research.

the south didn't require cheap labor from masses of european immigrants, so the white folks who are there have been hanging around for a long time. most of those white people were/are very poor and poor people don't care to do genealogy stuff.

why does everyone say "American" south of the Ohio River? :dunno:

americans are mostly scots-irish, or at least people living in areas with large scots-irish populations.

why don't they identify as scotch-Irish? And why are they concentrated immediately south of the Ohio River?

Reading that 11 nations book now. The original hill jacks were in WV and when more people arrived they would just float down the Ohio River to settle new lands since this was the easiest way to travel(no roads).

Why didn't they head north into the better farmlands of central OH/IN/IL? Welp, they were inbred hicks who hated being told what to do and thus avoided area's with large populations or where more people were likely to settle. Specifically the Yankee's from New England who were all about education and loved to start schools/colleges to assimilate everyone into there way of life.

One of the first things the Yankee's did when they settled KS was start the colleges that today we call KSU and KU.

Since I discovered that New Mexico is where I belong I read on Wikipedia that its name does not reference the country of Mexico and that it was called "New Mexico" long before Mexico was called "Mexico."  I guess I believe that.  At the same time, I sort of think of New Mexico as the new Colorado and sort of think of Colorado as the new California.

I think it's interesting with regard to regional cultural type similarities.  It seems to coincide pretty well with my own impressions.  I don't think I'd lump the Northeast and upper Midwest together, though.

All Streets consists of 240 million individual road segments.

when two rivers meet, the longer river's name gets used from then on. the missouri's source is farther away than the mississippi's, so technically it should be the missouri, but the mississippi was "discovered" and named first, before it was known how far away the source of the missouri river is.

That's not correct.  It's the larger (flow volume) river who's name is kept.

S. D. Houston of Riley county (on the western fringe of the then settled part of Kansas) who was the champion of "Big Kansas" in regard to the western boundary. Houston said, "If we can get the boundary designated by congress in the Kansas-Nebraska bill, and get a road to the mountains, I ask if it is not a question of some magnitude whether Kansas shall not have the grand Pacific Railroad of the country. . . . Suppose you go on and adopt the 25th meridian, you leave Kansas some three hundred miles from the mountains." He continued, "I'd rather have it go to those regions of gold."

The Lawrence Republican stated that the exclusion of both southern Nebraska and far western Kansas was wise. "It is entirely evident that the gold region could not be included in our government. A State 700 miles long is out of the question.

did the mississippi used to be called the Missouri? Also the St. Lawrence River is pretty cool.

when two rivers meet, the longer river's name gets used from then on. the missouri's source is farther away than the mississippi's, so technically it should be the missouri, but the mississippi was "discovered" and named first, before it was known how far away the source of the missouri river is.

That's not correct.  It's the larger (flow volume) river who's name is kept.

Then why is the Mississippi not named the Ohio river?

Fun fact...If you look at the west bottoms(Kansas City) you will notice that half of it is in KS and half is in Missouri. This is because when MO was admitted as a state in 1820 they used the mouth of the Kaw as the dividing line. By the time they finally started building stuff in KC the mouth of the Kaw had shifted a quarter mile northwest.  :D

My dad spent his 7th grade year living in Tampa, Fla. and one time told me about sunshowers when I was a kid and it was raining while sunny. We were in Kansas, but he said they used to have them all the time in Florida.  I always thought that is what everyone called it, "sunshowers." I was way wrong.

Apparently only Floridians call them that.

i think i answered that "rubbernecking" is something people do when they look at a wreck but i didn't know a word for the jam itself.

I had Reno, San Jose, and Denver the first time I took it, too.  Of those places I've only ever been to Denver.  Then I took it a second time and got slightly different questions and got pegged with  ICT, KC, Lincoln.

The state of KS was still in red in both, just none of the cities picked were here.  I guess if we ever visit the trashiest cities west of the Missouri, we'll fit right in.

All Streets consists of 240 million individual road segments. No other features — no outlines, cities, or types of terrain — are marked, yet canyons and mountains emerge as the roads course around them, and sparser webs of road mark less populated areas.

Pretty cool map however it's not accurate.  The Comanches started in the Wind River Range of Wyoming.  Only after the Spanish came and they mastered the horse did they descend onto the prairies.

Mine was weird; Reno, San Jose and some other nearby CA city...grew up east coast, spent my entire adult life in KS.
I had Reno, San Jose, and Denver the first time I took it, too.

got san jose, fremont and santa rosa.  probably has to do with big 12 games being shown on that bay area channel.

Off the top of my head the foreigners in the west were probably Chinese/Irish who built the railroads and worked in the mines.

You got: Oregon

You’re the most creative person in any group. Others look to you for advice on how to better spice up things, and they should: you’re basically the human version of hot sauce. You spice up the blandest occasions. You’re always on the cutting edge of the newest thing. You ever hear of Tire Gum? Andrew’s Sister? Plaid Dads? Of course you have.

I'm not like that at all.  I'm the least new thing person I know.  I have severe new thing apathy.  It's one of my worst traits according to other people.

You got: Pennsylvania

You’re the most extroverted out of any of your friends - you’re often thought of as the “leader,” someone who makes the plans. People admire you for your “go-getting” attitude, even if you can be a bit temperamental at times. Whatever, it comes with the territory.

Pennsylvania the Kansas of the east.

Here are some gotchas:

    Trip Routes are a result of passing the start and end locations to the Google Directions API. They are a possible route that the taxi took, but should not be assumed to be accurate.
    Empty Taxis also follow the "best route" between a dropoff and the next pickup. Just as with the trips, this is just an effective way to move the marker around, but doesn't reflect the reality of where the taxi traveled.
    Tips are only reported in the data for credit card transactions. Cash tips are not included.

They don't double dip in the same bank accounts, if that is what you're asking.

Its likely listed as the same simply because their year to year income would be the same, having equal ownership of the company, thus not reflecting actual cash on hand.

The locations of the dots do not represent actual addresses. The most detailed geographic identifier in Census Bureau data is the census block. Individual dots are randomly located within a particular census block to match aggregate population totals for that block. As a result, dots in some census blocks may be located in the middle of parks, cemeteries, lakes, or other clearly non-residential areas within that census block. No greater geographic resolution for the 2010 Census data is publicly available (and for good reason).

100% Prairie Living
Most of us are married, family farmers who work hard on our land, located primarily in the Midwest. We shop only when we need something, and stick to the food brands we know. Other than farm equipment, we own and drive trucks, SUVs, and ATVs. Technology isn't of particular interest. Financial activities include banking in person, investing in low-interest CDs, and holding term/whole life insurance policies. Faith and religion are strong influences in our lives; we donate to religious groups and join religious clubs. Radios are tuned to inspirational, faith, and country music stations. We also own pets, watch TV via satellite, shop at Walmart, and eat out at Subway. When there's time, we hunt, fish, go to country music concerts, and camp out

In fact, you could argue that it's so great that it even pulls Pott Co. up into the top 10% just for being an adjacent county.

awesome migration map. kansas has a surprisingly low percentage of native borns. imagine how boring it would be if it had iowa's percentage.

also surprising that more Kansans move to California than Colorado.

The internet is an amazing thing. I just stumbled across this today and spent an hour playing with it. 

http://maps.kgs.ku.edu/oilgas/index.cfm

Shows every oil/gas/water well in KS. I can look at my grand parents old farm and see they have 3 water wells, 2 completed in 1976 under my GPA's name and 1 in 2007 under my uncles name(GPA passed away in 2004).

I can also see that the plot of land my dad is inheriting (GMA passed away in march  :cry:) is next to some land where there is an oil well that was completed in 2012. You can click the well and see who owns it(Long lost cousins apparently), how much it has produced every month etc etc. You can even see the core samples from the drilling in PDF's, just crazy stuff.

I'm a big fan of that map just because it shows all of the ridiculous school districts we have with less than 1,000 students total.

I expected western ks to be the biggest offender but its really the southeast/southcentral part of the state that is the worst when you take into account the geographic area.

Leroy, Burlington and Lebo all have less than 1,000 students and could easily be consolidated into one district.

Better yet have Garnett annex them and become a 4a powerhouse.

The internet is an amazing thing. I just stumbled across this today and spent an hour playing with it. 

http://maps.kgs.ku.edu/oilgas/index.cfm

Shows every oil/gas/water well in KS. I can look at my grand parents old farm and see they have 3 water wells, 2 completed in 1976 under my GPA's name and 1 in 2007 under my uncles name(GPA passed away in 2004).

I can also see that the plot of land my dad is inheriting (GMA passed away in march  :cry:) is next to some land where there is an oil well that was completed in 2012. You can click the well and see who owns it(Long lost cousins apparently), how much it has produced every month etc etc. You can even see the core samples from the drilling in PDF's, just crazy stuff.

this is cool, my grandpa has 6 wells in SEK, really interesting.  Great grandfather drilled a ton in SEK and NEO in the 40's and 50's and his name pops up all over the place.

The water well data that is shown on the KGS map is pulled from the Water Well Completion form database (WWC5). Well drillers and other people associated with punching holes to groundwater have to submit a WWC5 for each completed well. Kansas started the WWC5 database and groundwater protection act in 1974. So if you have groundwater wells on your property that were installed prior to 1974 and haven't been redrilled after 1974, they won't be on that map.

If your water wells have water rights associated with them, or if you aren't even sure they ever have, you can peruse the Kansas Division of Water Resources WIMAS system and see the available info and some interesting things.

Oil and gas wells equal money and their locations have been recorded since the late 1920s.

well Santa Rosa has 170k and Petaluma and Novato are both 50-60k. I've never been up past Novato but a big issue is the 101 is the only way to get to the city (or to a Ferry in Marin) and it rough ridin' sucks.

And yeah, it's pretty mountainous/wildernessy or wine country starts up there and probably won't ever have significant new development outside of the three northern cities I mentioned.

One of cooler maps I’ve seen. This just cost me a lot of time.

My GF got me an old replica globe for Christmas  :love: . She knows the exact date but wont tell me so its a game....I've narrowed it down to between 1971 (Pakistan/Bangladesh 2 separate countries) and 1989 (East/West Germany).

Will do some more research tonight on Dates countries were founded/split off etc to see if I can find a more exact range. SO MUCH FUN. Go Maps!

BEN JI, UPDATES????
Finally got around to looking at it and it's actually super simple. I just assumed Germany was still split but it's been reunited and the USSR is still there, so 1990/91ish.

On the globe.  I don't think he meant currently.

Unless he did mean currently and his gf was mocking him with the gift.

I notice it has Bonn as the capitol.  Berlin wasn't "officially" ratified as the capitol until 1991. So probably 1990 for the globe.  Other parts of the world would be telling.

I've tried to communicate how wide open it is in the western half of the US to people from like NY, NJ, and PA. They have absolutely no ability to comprehend what I am trying to tell them.

It's always like, "you could literally run out of gas before you get to the next gas station!" "Oh, yeah, I've been on really remote roads like that." "No, dude. No. You have no idea! THERE IS NO COMPARISON!!!!!"

Was messing around on the JOCO property tax website and stumbled onto this.

All sorts of tools and options you can play around with. My favorite is the aerial map from 1941

Yeah so, apparently someone I went to to elementary-high school with is a super famous YouTuber and I had no idea.  Sad that he eclipsed Olympic gold medalist Tara Nott, and College World Series MVP Champion Sam Scott as the most famous denizens of Stilwell, KS
