    I know the difference, but they don't evne look like they are the same race. One of these guys looks like a light skinned African-American and the other as white as a Scandinavian person.

    Good thing I’m color blind and thought that was red #gbr

    (seriously, I didn’t realize that was orange until you said this and I’ve seen that graph at least 5 times)

    That’s the Thousand Lakes region of central Utah. It’s a beautiful, rugged area. Highlights are Cathedral Valley, Capitol Reef NP and the Aquarius Plateau.

    Going to question the accuracy of that map as it appears no two states have the same artist. To me that would seem highly unlikely

    edit: or am I reading the map wrong and those artists are from those respective states?

    Wiz Khalifa in North Dakota is by far the most random imo.

    The Fray being on this list is pretty funny to me as well .

    I’d guess this same kind of thing is responsible for a few of these:

    Khalifa was born Cameron Jibril Thomaz on September 8, 1987 in Minot, North Dakota to parents serving in the military.

    Yeah, it’s screwed up a little bit. Eagles are definitely a California band in my mind, but most members weren’t born there. Ok, but then you have Eminem under Missouri when he is commonly associated with Michigan

    I feel like butte and mesa are used interchangeably. But then again it may be how approachable they are to get on top. The butte looks more like a spire.

    I love geology.
