          without even looking, I'm guessing the last is a list of football coaches

            It's not a list; it's a map. In each state, you can see the title of the highest paid person.

              Who is, of course, usually a football coach.

              I love how Neveda's is, not surprisingly, a Med School PLASTIC SURGEON!

                  Here's a timely one. How much snow does it take to cancel school?

                    Original (alternate) names of U.S. cities. Match the alternate name with the present day city.

                          this is fabulous; 1000 years of changing borders in Europe.

                          It helps to make it full-screen so you can read some of the smaller script. And I liked watching it multiple times, just focusing on a single country. (who knew that Lithuania was once such a major player and extended all the way to the Black Sea?)

                              maps don't get more topical than this one!

                                This map is misleading in that it tries to make it look like the Malaysian plane disappearance isn't that big a deal. It's only if you read closely that you see most of the cases on their list were much smaller planes, likely either private flights (therefore not subject to anything like this level of monitoring) or military planes in war situations (where it's easy to find a plausible explanation of what happened). Huge passenger aircrafts vanishing without a trace are virtually unheard of, at least not in the last few decades.
