Learning By Looking: If US State Size Matched Population

February 10, 2014


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!
