Agreed. I like "walking" through towns that I pick at random using the street view. In addition, viewing the intricacies of the mapped ocean floor is fascinating.
Thank you! I'll be staring at that stuff for days. And now I've got some evidence about beer to show to my snooty wine-drinking friends.
Beersnots can be as snooty as winos Pours a breathtaking pitch black with a cumulonimbus head. Heavy lacing. Off-putting esthery nose, with just a hint of cilantro and tartness. Stunning yeasty flavor, punctuated with sour milk and grapefruit. Hearty yet effervescent mouthfeel and slightly dry finish.
Pours a turbulent chestnut with a miniscule head. The faintest hint of lacing. Thick musty aroma, accompanied by grapefruit and pecans. Nightmarish bready palate, with notes of coffee and hops. Extremely weak mouthfeel and long finish

Actually, there are 3143 counties, parishes, boroughs and independent cities. I was referring to the counties in which the large, presumably sinful, greedy cities are located. I am guessing that the high "deviation" in rural counties is because you don't expect any bad to happen there and the low deviation in cities is because you know its gonna be bad.
OMG, that looks like a site you could spend forever delving into. From their description, it appears that the online version adds much to the print edition. Nonetheless I thought the print edition would be nice thing to own (and would be much less addictive than the web version). So I went to Amazon and found that one could indeed buy a brand new copy of the print edition . . . for a mere $1,824.
