I was born, raised, and currently live in Nee Jersey, and not only have I never even seen a Portuguese restaurant, I don't even what the hell Portuguese food is like.

Check out the Ironbound section of Newark, there’s tons of amazing Portuguese and Brazilian food. Portuguese seafood is awesome.

That said I’m surprised it wasn’t Italian food, which is everywhere in NJ.

Italian food is everywhere in a lot of states, which makes it unlikely to show up much in a map like this. Much like Chinese restaurants.

I went into a pizza place that had three tea dispensers available, one labeled "Unsweet," one labeled "Sweet" and another labeled "Southern Sweet." And I appreciate that.

Whoa, no, not even close. That's 724,204 km/h, and c is 300,000 km/s. This thing will be going about 200 km/s at its peak. That's still crazy fast, but not remotely approaching 0.7c.

No, that's just distance traveled. Light was invented in 1879 and traveled about 1053387.64 km since. c = (1053387640 m/((2018-1879)*365*24*60*60 s) = 0.240307215 m / s! According to the graph the probe travelled 724204 km since 2018 so it's really a lot faster than light. Makes sense since it's a probe going into the sun, it has to travel faster than light to overcome photon shower slowdown.

Accurate. This is why they call the olden times "The Dark Ages", as light had not yet been invented.

All of them, there's a lot of Native American named places here in WV. The rest are named after the people who came and took stuff from the Native Americans.

So ...

Condom usage is directly related to hotdog consumtion in the US. I just wonder, were those hotdogs consumed before or after sex? How many sausages or even hot-dogs were lost in the abyss? It's an interesting topic to look into.

It's in the key:



According to the chart condom usage is directly related to hot dog consumption amongst US students.
This leads me to conclude that Frankfurters Würst is used as a penis surrogate by US students when there isn't a direct availability of a condom. You can see fewer Frankfurters Würst are 'consumed' when condom usage increases.

The chart is only mapping those two sets of data next to each other. Actually looking at the information on chart should make it obvious there is not a correlation
