East of the Mississippi, north of the Danube. Somehow rivers still matter.

MHA,

Now that is fascinating!

Knuck,

Great observation!

Knuck, That line you see down the middle of the US isn't the Mississippi--it's the treeline basically. It runs through San Antonio, Austin, Dallas-Ft. Worth, OK City, Wichita, Salina, Lincoln, Fargo. West of there, trees don't grow naturally except along a few riverbeds and in a few selected mountain fastnesses and favored valleys (excepting the West Coast of course).

MHA,

If a tree googles and there's nobody to see the results, does it get any hits?

China is hotter than India. Strikes me as a good indicator of where the knowledge workers are. It's not Eurabia yet.

Thanks, That is amazing to see.

MHA,

Just noticed that this EKG is a bit more than two years old. I can't think of any good reason that it would look substantially different today than in Aug. 2003, but is there a more recent one?

Not many searches coming out of Waziristan. :) Baghdad looks hot, though, if I've located it properly. Free people enjoying their freedom.

Knuck,

It's fairly well known that westerners actually possess possess quite a bit more knowledge than those in the east. This is simply more evidence of that fact.
