    You could also show Alabama’s poorest counties, lowest graduation rates, etc. and get the same results.

    The spot northwest of Hawesville, KY near the Century Aluminum of Kentucky plant bottoms out at a 1 in 43 risk. You have that plant centered around 4 more plants in close proximity near the Ohio River.

    If the Republic of Texas had been able to keep its "claimed territory," we'd be talking about an even stupider-looking panhandle.

    LOL at Texas trying to think they held claim to that land at any point during that time period. The land shown by the dashed lines was 100% dominated by the Comanches.

    Is understanding human history as simple as the difference in tropical and nontropical regions? Look at that map...basically every story is somebody from the white exploiting somebody from the pink. (Yes I realize this is basically Guns Germs and Steel, but I'm struck by looking at this map.)

    (No geographic determinism -- not trying to justify what happened, just understand)

    Map is flawed because it doesn’t show fuel stops, but otherwise, very accurate.

    You are walking towards that. You know you will have to climb it. You know the weather could change at any second. You tell me.

    It's the most terrifying mountain on earth. I assume the sight of it does something to a man

    Oh gotcha. My mind was thinking like it was covered in pollution and such, like Everest.

    Still, "appalling" is an odd word choice. Terrifying or harrowing maybe, but whatever
