Learning By Looking: If US State Size Matched Population

population-by-state-size.jpg

Note: Alaska not drawn to scale for some reason. Alaska is almost 2.5x the size of Texas (although California's population is only 1.5x the size of Texas leading me to believe this entire map is a CROCK OF LIES.

This is a map of the United States showing the approximate size of each state if its size was relative to its population. Really puts things into perspective, doesn't it? I'm joking, I'm having a hard time even understanding what I'm looking at. This sort of thing is way over my head. Also over my head? My shirt -- I'm waving it around like a helicopter! "Those are underwear." So... "Somehow you managed to put on a t-shirt like a pair of boxers." Heck yeah! Is my penis poking out one of the sleeves?! "Not even close." Damn.

Thanks to LDA, who informed me California has a larger population than all of Canada. Wowzers!

    Looks like they put Nevada twice and forgot Nebraska.

    Well played, Texas!

    The wording on that description confused the crap outta me... It should say this is a map placing the populations of each state into locations that best accommodate their numbers... Or something like that. I thought the actual sizes of the states were going to be larger or smaller based on population.

    Nebraska is missing

    Nevada's on there twice (where Kentucky and Virginia should be), meaning you missed one somewhere else.
