Reminds me of the days when Chatam Ontario use to have the largest pork yards in all of Ontario. They had roughly 250,000 head at any given time. When the wind blew right you could smell Chatam 20 miles out.

I've always wondered how much worse it actually is today, or if we're mostly just bombarded with the bad news more today.

If a place gets more urban/more people, then more incidents may occur, and maybe there's more poverty etc. But is part of the perception of increased risk a result of poor ability to access actual risk?

P.S. The classic example is the most risky thing people do is drive an automobile, though most people accept this risk. Almost anything you do other than this pales by comparison, but is perceived as an unacceptable risk.

its a function of population density. if you still get out in the rural areas, the kids have just as much leeway as they used to. the more populated the less likely people are to know each other and look out for each other's kids.

Yeah, where I grew up was considered suburbs, and everyone knew everyone.

Washington State has both the most Bigfoot sightings and the most UFO sightings (per capita) 14 states are above the US average in Bigfoot/UFO sightings (green), 7 states above avg in Bigfoot but below in UFO (red), 13 below Bigfoot above UFO (purple), & 16 below in both (blue).

That Madrid earthquake in Missouri/Arkansas is pretty famous. Check out South Carolina- Hit Charleston back in the late 1700's I think. I'm really wondering about that one in New Hampshire.

Looked up Mr. Pibb, which apparently was Coca-Cola's attempt to compete against Dr Pepper, and first marketed in "Pepper Territory."

I liked it better than Dr Pepper, but they've since changed it into something called Mr. Pibb Extra, which IMO isn't as good as the original or Dr Pepper, for that matter.

The state is so small, I'm trying to figure out what that corp symbol for Hawaii is. All I can think of is Aloha Airlines.

Following a crowded field. Don't even know why that map has DP. Can you imagine the Texas Fortune 500 companies ahead of it.
