Love both of them guys!

http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2014/070/a/5/map_of_the_internet_2_0__by_jaysimons-d781bst.jpg is a gorgeous looking map. Some of the details are really fun. Like MegaUpload is listed as "Destroyed by the Capitol".

Nice, SR. That's what I thought of as soon as I saw Royce's post too. Infographic thread?

The differences in having "fought" for what they have.

(Scare quotes because I'm sure business people would suggest that they also "fought" for what they have...)

Its no secret that most of the national budget goes towards military spending :P I don't think we need more vets. What concerns me is that there onyl really two groups that control the whole thing, vets and public service. Where are the doctors, where are the engineers?

Check out that goldilocks zone right under the text. Bunch of smaller planets around the temperature/density of earth. I'm assuming the blue is water.

(if you didn't notice, there is a scale on the botton and right side)

Lol, Somnambulist.

First thing I saw, Wilshire :). Makes me happy. The adventure continues for something.

Some of those Kepler's are also like many times the size of Earth. Pretty kewl.

Oh, found Earth. Didn't see it before. Several plants right around it. Keplars and a Gilese. Very cool.

I figured this was Wilshire Clickbait. I really enjoy the use of gravitational pulls, as I'm not sure a lot of people realize that's how we travel through the solar system.

I think it'll be hit or miss as to whether you like Pratchett. It'd be real cool if you did though.
