The True Size Of.... countries.

 

It's an interactive map and it's pretty interesting.

Most people have no idea how distorting the Mercator map projection is and how it exaggerates the size of places closer to the poles. Africa is huge, the contiguous 48 states fit into a corner of the continent.

Dating is big business in the United States. According to a survey conducted by online dating service Match.com, the average unmarried American spent $1,596 on dating in 2016. Some 68% of surveyed men want to find love this year, and the proliferation of online dating applications has made it easier to meet more people, go on more dates, and ultimately spend more money.
 
In addition to Americans going on more dates, the average date may be getting more expensive. According to the National Association of Theatre Owners, the average price of a movie ticket has risen from $5.06 in 1999 to $8.97 in 2017, and the average cost of a liter of wine has risen from $5.09 to $12.38.
 
The average cost of a date today -- consisting of two dinners, a bottle of wine, and two movie tickets -- adds up to $102.32. Many of the cost components of the average date vary by state, as well as factors such as taxes, travel costs, and overall costs of living, making dating far more expensive in some parts of the country than others.

The Man in the High Castle should be coming along soon.

That'll be a binge over 2 nights in front of the comp. A 80 degree angle up.. 2 days of no productivity, then about 2 weeks of a dwindling void.

October 5th!! It’s been a long wait for season 3.

Fortunately, NYPD Blue popped up on Amazon Prime recently, so I’m hoping 12 seasons of that will bridge the gap to MitHC for me.
