Geography of the Seven Deadly Sins

Obviously somewhat tongue-in-cheek, but still interesting. Not much wrath in my part of the country.
Wrath was calculated by comparing the total number of violent crimes — murder, assault and rape — reported to the FBI per capita.

Lust was calculated by compiling the number of sexually transmitted diseases — HIV, AIDS, syphilis, chlamydia and gonorrhea — reported per capita.

Gluttony was calculated by counting the number of fast food restaurants per capita...

  1. once again my prejudice that the midwest is the most virtuous part of the country is confirmed

  2. Glad to see I'm not the only one who noticed this!!

  3. breaking news! another shocker!

    andrew sullivan posted a similar piece 2 weeks after you did. again, with no attribution for the idea. naturally, he linked to the original source, but omitted that he got the idea of the post from tywkiwdbi.

    at what point are you going to call him out for repeatedly doing this?

    he is by definition plagiarizing you. the co-opting of your thoughts and intellectual process. once is coincidence. every month?

  4. Anonymous overlooked the Pennies to $100 million video. It gets more suspicious.

    AND the fox-diving-in-snow video. AND the Thousand Hand Guan Yin.

    I'll bet if you check the "view from your window" you'll see his face peering in...

  6. I know how we can make him talk!
