State Word Map

Maps that compare states to each other are fun, and we've posted a lot of them. But how seriously should we take them? Like the population in general, there are more differences between people within groupings (states) than there are between groups (states). Of course, if you look at such maps and wonder what is going on in your state that you weren't aware of, you already know to take the results with a grain of salt. Randall Munroe of xkcd takes a swing at the map trend in his latest comic.

That article isn't mine. It was reprinted from the book Uncle John's Canoramic Bathroom Reader.

Neatorama had permission to publish one time, but any other requests will have to go through the book publisher.
