Color coded with each team’s colors.

These map percentages indicate responses to the question: “Do you wash your hands automatically with soap and water after going to the toilet?” Faring the worst: The Netherlands, which clocks in at only 50%, and Italy, where a mere 57% of respondents said that they adhere to this hygienic practice. I’m not sure about you, but I might reconsider my craving for a hand-tossed pizza with the works whilst in Italy from this point forwards.

‘Merica?

Interesting.

Can’t argue with Ohio. Love me some stuffed mushrooms, man. This is according to Google.

Sorry rest of the US of A, but the Buckeye State might just have you all beat in this one. I mean, The Shawshank Redemption? Seriously? Tough to top.

Note: If you haven’t seen The Shawshank Redemption you can no longer be my friend, are an ignoramus of the highest order, and you should be beaten about the head and shoulders with a bag of lugnuts.

Depending on the time of day or time of year, there could be anywhere from 8,000 to 20,000 planes mid-flight at any given moment over the United States. In addition, an average of 2,789,971 passengers a day fly in and out of U.S. airports.

Too many high school athletes across the country are dying, and the epidemic isn’t getting better. About fifty high school athletes died last year from direct or indirect causes related to their sports. Thirteen of those deaths were football players. The worst part about it all is that most of them could have been prevented. More than 90% of sudden deaths in sports are attributable to sudden cardiac arrest, heat stroke, and head injuries. This map shows what states are meeting the minimum best practices regarding the health of high school athletes.

 

These are the states in the U.S. with the highest number of violent and property crimes per capita.

 

The longest straight line on land in the world starts in Liberia and ends near Wenling, China. The route runs through 9 time zones, 18 countries and is over 8,444 miles long.

At 6.6 million square miles Russia is the world’s largest country in area. But Mercator Maps make it look larger than it actually is. If you move Russia down to the equator you will see how truly mammoth the continent of Africa is. At 11.73 million square miles, it’s almost twice the size of Russia. Take a gander:

90% of Canadians live within 100-miles of the United States. They rank 222nd in the world in population density.

Ohio is well represented. Yay.

Interesting.
