    While it is true that not all imperialism is the same, a whole bunch of it comes with genocide and ethnic cleansing. A whole bunch. Change in leadership and native people "working for the new boss" was often accompanied with mass starvation, brutal murderous tactics to avoid revolt, and rape and pillaging of native settlements. You can't exactly get people to work for the new boss when they have their own land and aren't working for an old boss.

    Or do you not social darwinism.

    Any horological scholars here that can explain why year 1 is year 1 but Jesus who this whole thing is based around was born in 6-4 bc?

    Combine geriatrics, transplants from NY who never drove prior to moving to SFL, and a culture that makes driving a me v. you endeavor, and there you go. Using your blinker to change lanes will immediately result in everyone in the lane you are trying to merge into speeding up to prevent that merge because how dare you get one car length ahead of the person next to you.

    Nothing larger than 32 ounces is permitted to be sold. Also, I believe Florida is middle of the road nationally in terms of the number of guns per capita.

    Honest to god, we have the biggest cunts on the road. You’re either the person trying to merge and being cut off because someone doesn’t want to be a car length further from their destination or you’re the person waiting for someone to suddenly cut in front of you with no regard for human life.

    I got ran off a three lane road just Friday night. I was in the middle lane and my dude in the left decides to cut it over to my lane suddenly, so I have just enough time to decide I can veer to the right and avoid causing my own wreck. Then homeboy keeps on coming all the way to the right so I slammed on the brakes to avoid the sidewalk/trees/lamppost scenario, dude behind me veers to the middle lane to avoid me, and we all somehow remain unscathed. Then he hightails it out of dodge since he’s in a work van with the number plastered on it but I’m too surprised to have not been in a wreck to read what it said.

    This is a blatantly inaccurate map. Specifically, it is trying to sell the idea that the 100% of the continental U.S. in 1776 was "US Native Land."

    Putting aside the fact that a "US Native" does not mean what the author thinks it means, she's totally ignoring that the British settled the 13 colonies; it is ignoring that the French had owned and colonized Louisiana; it ignores that the Spanish Empire had conquered the western U.S. from the natives, and it ignores that the western U.S. was part of Mexico when it was taken by the US.

    Overall this is total horseshit.

    Leroi I think the author was just using the current contiguous* US map. That she wasn’t saying that those lands were owned by the US in 1776.

    the map says what it says, independently of her intent

    in 1776 when it starts, it shows 100% of the modern continental US as 'US native owned', and there's not really any other way to interpret that.

    and as it progresses through the years, it is also not correct at any point in time besides (i think) the very end. In particular its boundaries pre-1848 are not close to being accurate.

    This driving thing doesn't seem to be that high of value (said the Texan).

    In my estimation - there is a certain utility that driving affords which also carries inherent risks. Texans seemingly should be overrepresented on traffic accidents while NYers should be severely underrepresented. An inverse would seem to be that texans driving (or driving done on Texas roads) is more productive than NYers driving.

    TL;dr human mobility and transportation is more complex than the above graph reflects.

    I saw some at a local grocery store a few months back. That store was open for about 4 months and shut down. Niche local grocery game is difficult I guess.

    Not to get off topic but there’s a cool story about a town in Florida that had trouble attracting a grocery store. The small ones kept going out of business and the big chains wouldn’t come.

    The city opened and ran its own store w government workers. It’s been really successful.
