And in the USA you can buy an honest to the Lord Jesus Christ Traditional English Measure pint

None of this newfangled "Imperial" crap let alone anything French.

I'm guessing the beer prices are for Imperial pints (certainly they should be for London and Dublin, and for a fair comparison the other European country prices should be for the same quantity). The Imperial pint is over 20% larger than the pathetic USA pint.

Imperial pint is 568 ml, USA pint is 473 ml.

Zooming in I find the interesting bit is how the tubes do not follow the streets.

Foreign aid (Development Assistance Committee only and no military aid either), only the link because draconian rules here:

5 Countries That Provide the Largest Foreign Aid

...

1. China

A surprise to many, the winner on the “aid list” is China rather than the United States. As a non-DAC country, China has not officially disclosed its aid information; however, in a recent publication, researchers from AidData at William & Mary claimed that during the year between 2000 and 2014, China offered $350 billion-worth of aid to 140 countries and territories, sponsoring more than 4000 projects – the largest foreign aid program in the world.

In 2009, China’s total financial commitment to development aid reached a whopping $69.9 billion, two times that of the U.S. foreign aid in the same year.

A large chunk of China’s aid is categorized by AidData as “Other Official Flows,” indicating that though counted as foreign aid, these financial assistances are primarily intended for commercial access rather than for development and welfare.

Top recipients of Chinese aid are largely members of the One Belt One Road Initiative, a program by President Xi that aims to reinforce trading routes across continents.

As a result, almost half of the aid was spent on infrastructure sectors including energy generation and supply, transportation, storage and communication. The spending on agriculture, forestry and fishing only took up 3 percent of the aid.

Sure. Westward ho!

Slowed down after 1910 as one might expect, but really picked up again after WWII with zero territorial expansion.

OK Pyrrho. Thought has been provoked. ;)

That kind of sums up my day, but with more time spent cleaning up other people's disasters and less time spent doing productive work.

There are two kinds of people in this world: those who cause problems and those who solve them. 99% of people are in the former category.

And the other one percent do double duty, causing problems AND cleaning up a few here and there. :)

I'd like to see a surface plot of this data over say 50 years.

Also, from where were the data points collected. I'd like to be sure that urban areas are eliminated, also areas where roads or building has gone on.

This is sorta what I am looking for


From 1975 or so on.

That does not strike me as climate. per se. Has anyone here looked into this stuff? I suspect that it is a bit more complicated than white people bad.
