Viewing any of these as a function of income percentage is interesting, but I wonder too what it looks like in terms of actual dollars. So, a little work to work it backward

US: $1923 (seems low for me) UK:$1960 (seems really low for AC [fat bastard])
Fr: $3397 (holy shit) SA:$688
Look at the right hand side on the second to last one.
$217. And that's household income. And those are crowded houses. I'm going to send them a fucking sandwich.

Does that mean we are the least nerdiest state? And "Porn usage" in that almost-square state? I bet they use it the most, not the least, so that doesn't make sense. Call me pedantic, but it seems to me this shows what states are best at and I take umbrage at the above two being portrayed as negative traits.

In many cases, the whole state is getting the rap for one or two big cities. Examples: Robbery -- Chicago. Daily Commute -- New York City. Homeless Population -- Seattle and Tacoma. But binge drinking in Wisconsin? That's right on the money.

It's the high taxes in Illinois that forces us to rob people, so we can pay the taxes.

Pensions need to go away and replaced with 401(k) plans. At least until such time as we develop the ability to see the future so returns on investment can be accurately predicted. As well as double dipping, late career pension boosts, etc etc. Illinois is imploding under the pension debt, it's at the point where promised benefits cannot possibly be made. Every man, woman, and child is on the hook for about$30K and that's growing every day. Worst funded pensions in the country. People and corporations are already fleeing the state because there is no future here so long as those pensions are hanging over everyone's head.

Which leads us to the next post and another thought-provoking graph...

This is what happens when politicians can't say "no" to the government employee unions and make promises they don't have a prayer of keeping. Debt increases alomng with the unfunded obligations, and more tax revenue cannot be collected because people and corporations (jobs) are fleeing the state because even more crushing tax increases are expected in a desperate attempt to raise money. The death spiral has begun!

What's the common denominator?

I'm a little surprised that Virginia is above average in the desire to move. It must be greatly swayed by very unhappy folks in the northern Arlington area. Asswipes, all of them. A meeting place for every sociopath in America.

I think the common denominator is the economy.

Never before have graphs been so provoked by a thought.

There's lots of stuff they could have chosen the USA for, but they chose serial killers.

Looks like they overlooked Venezuela. And a few other countries in Central/South America.

Back to the food thing, I found this:
The latest round of inflation hysteria (which you should be ignoring for these eight reasons) is especially focused on the rising price of certain foods. The interesting thing about food is that the general category contains many many many different commodities. So at any given time it's almost certainly going to be the case that the price of something or other — pork or milk or wheat or what have you — is skyrocketing.

But here's a chart of expenditures on food as a share of all disposable income:
