  • what's the dark blob between Colorado & New Mexico (and a tiny part of Oklahoma)?
  • how come the Bible Belt seems to go so far up North?
That middle belt represents flyover country; very low density populations, lots and lots of farmers.

While the resolution is by county, it's a little misleading because some counties have very low populations. That black blob in SE Colorado is Las Animas County. Population density is 4 people/m2 (and two of them are Mexican-style Catholics.

Monday through Saturday they tend their fields. Church on Sunday may be the only socialization they get.

I have plenty of booze. And if I touched a hooker, Mrs. Shemp would kill me before the virus got a chance.

Half a century ago, the entirety of ARPANET, predecessor of the internet, was just 45 computers connected to 40 nodes.

The logical map above shows the state of the internet in Sept. 1973. It was charted by Advanced Research Projects Agency (since renamed the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) for the ARPAnet Completion Report (PDF), published in Jan. 1978.

What I gathered from a French cheese promotion site is that the FDA is wary of anything made from raw milk, and that there are apparently (unspecified) pressure groups who want it banned completely.
Also that roquefort is taxed at 300%, which they consider protectionism.

Yet here you can buy any cheese and have it delivered by FedEx to Murica within 24 h.

The elitist in me wants to agree but the glutton in me realizes that there is no better fit for a real 'Merican burger (although pepper-jack is a good second and there's no sin in having both).

And, FWIW,...
Total U.S. per capita consumption of natural cheese increased for the third straight year in 2013. Americans consume more Italian style cheeses than other types, followed by American style cheeses. Over the past few decades, total U.S. per capita consumption of processed cheeses has been on a downward trend, and fell for the third straight year in 2013.
  • Total U.S. per capita consumption of natural cheese reached a record 33.7 pounds in 2013. This was 0.4 percent higher than 2012 when the previous record high was set.

    2013 per capita consumption of cheddar cheese increased by 1 percent to 9.66 pounds. This was 0.79 pounds less than the record per capita consumption set in 2006. Per capita consumption of other American style cheese fell slightly in 2013 from 2012’s record high to 3.7 pounds.

    Total per capita consumption of Italian style cheese increased slightly in 2013 to 14 pounds. This was still less than the record of 14.09 pounds set in 2011.

    Among other cheese types, per capita consumption of Swiss cheese fell by 4.5 percent in 2013. At 1.05 pounds, per capita consumption of Swiss cheese has declined by 16.7 percent since 2007.

    Per capita consumption of Hispanic cheese increased in 2013 by nearly 6 percent to 0.71 pounds.

    At 6.37 pounds, 2013 per capita consumption of processed cheese products was the lowest since 1974, declining 3.9 percent from 2012.

It's not Vermont Cheddar. It's just "Vermont."

Fucking yanks and their cultural misappropriation. They even have Somerset Brie now. I won't touch it.
