        What dialect do you speak? A map of American English.

            Lonewolf. Its a question of scale. The data used appears to have been at the county level, of which there are more than 3000 in the USA. That's why you don't see any cities.

              Of all the people ever to visit these forums, I will wager that lonewolf knows the number of counties in the USA better than anyone :lol:

                Actually, there are 3143 counties, parishes, boroughs and independent cities. I was referring to the counties in which the large, presumably sinful, greedy cities are located. I am guessing that the high "deviation" in rural counties is because you don't expect any bad to happen there and the low deviation in cities is because you know its gonna be bad.

                  If this hasn't been noted before, it should be. It looks amazing.

                    OMG, that looks like a site you could spend forever delving into. From their description, it appears that the online version adds much to the print edition. Nonetheless I thought the print edition would be nice thing to own (and would be much less addictive than the web version). So I went to Amazon and found that one could indeed buy a brand new copy of the print edition . . . for a mere $1,824.

                      Here's a simpler one. It shows where a certain game is called soccer and where it's called football. You can click on the map to expand it a bit.

                        Here's an interesting one, from an organization called Transparency International. It purports to show how corrupt countries are. The darker the shading on the map, the more corrupt the country.

                        The US is ok, but Canada, Australia and Scandinavia seem to be even cleaner.

                          But they're wrong about the name of the game in my country (OK, the word "futbol" does exist, but the more common and proper term is "pi?ka no?na").
