    The biggest one for me is 65% of Israel's population to be atheist.
    Second biggest. In Europe, young population is more religious than their elders.

      The 65% is for not religious or atheist. The headline didn't match the content.

        That is exactly what I said. I am surprised that 65% of Israel's population identify with atheism.

          Being not religious doesn't mean you're an atheist. 65% are a combination of atheist and people who are not religious.

            • I suspect they have lumped agnostics with atheists.

                The term "not religious" is damn vague.

                      My guess is 11,000 give or take 1000 miles.

                      Drive 8 hours a day and make the whole journey in under 4 weeks.

                      • Hey, I made that trip.. took me 27 years and 800,000 miles, four automobile, several cameras and one wife (just kidding about the wife) .. of course I was photographing every county/parish/borough courthouse in the continental USA so there was a bit of backtracking.

                        • Seen 17 of the 48, if you count drive-bys. For instance, I've driven past Graceland and saw it from the street outside the gates; didn't go in. Have often seen the Statue of Liberty, never been to Liberty Island.

                            • Some of those are just silly. SF is 'Cable Cars'? Lombard St. or even going up Coit Tower is a better 'destination'.
                              Cape Canaveral is Florida's only destination? Daytona, Miami, Disney?!
                              The most glaring error is that Yellowstone is not on there.

                                Golden Gate Bridge.

                                However, riding a cable car filled with drunks down one of the big hills is easily more memorable than Lombard or Coit.
