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. 

great assessment

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.

yeah, new mexico city, not new mexico country (or new mexico state).
we understand it better now that the american century is over and some of us sound more and more like serbs.

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.

you could probably separate Texas and Appalachia, too. Still pretty interesting.

some one needs to tell those regional map people that there doesn't need to be so many northeastern divisions.  it's not the 18th century anymore, you know?

I disagree. If anything there should be more(Thats where all the people live).

good one.

I think the "possible dispersal routes" are quite arbitrary, though.

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. More details can be found here, with additional discussion of the previous version here.
