It seems we would both fit in in lower latitude regions, at least according to the one metric depicted on that map...

Yay! Go us. Let's celebrate with 40L of vodka. Each.

So, 200 years worth at our current rate of consumption? Assuming vodka is the only alcohol we consume? (Blergh.) Or are we supposed to up our consumption to match our latitude? Are you going to tell me that I should start using a sauna, too?

Canada used to consume more before we adopted American twist off beer bottles.

Ian, at least, is way ahead of me in alcohol consumption. I'm approaching the point when the time since my last drink will be equal to the time before it (since I was born). Not for any particular reason. Although I do have a propensity toward really unpleasant hangovers.

Sounds like some people here like maps + data.

One of the orienteers here in Seattle has a side project where every week (on a Monday), he posts a map that shows some sort of data. Your goal is to figure out what the map is showing. He'll post hints from Tuesday through Friday to help you out.

That's awesome! I want to see one like this for Dunkin Donuts in Boston.

I am a force of nature. I had a beer in Ottawa over Victoria Day weekend; it was ok given that it was a beer.

Fun fact: there are only four Dunkin Donuts in Canada. I also stumbled upon one (and knew this fact, so I could appreciate the improbability) in Montreal over Victoria Day.

I assume all the Dunkin' donuts in Canada are in Quebec

Actually, I am a lot of fun at parties. Because I'm always happy to be the designated driver.

I'm sure there must be more than four Tim Horton'ses in the US. We have a donut trade deficit!

The weekly map thing is awesome, but hard.

As for the original map, I'm assuming that Australia would look a bit different if the Northern Territory was shown as a separate entity.
