Site of the Month

I don't think I did a Site of the Month last month - and honestly don't care enough to go back and look to confirm that - so I'll get it out of the way early. 

710 gave me this one:

A People Map of the U.S. 

It us where city names are replaced by their most Wikipedia’ed resident: people born in, lived in, or connected to a place.

I haven't looked, but I'll assume Dayton has been replaced by Wilbur and Orville Wright. Awkward if it is only one of them.  Spoiler Alert: Charles Manson wins in Cincinnati. I'm guessing Pete Rose can have a sigh of relief. 

Ohio also gets Halle Berry, 21 Pilots, Luke Perry and Jeffrey Dahmer. I mean, I don't even think Drew Carey gets a nod.  .....though it might depend on how much you zoom in or out. Ben Roethlisberger gets two Ohio nods. Maybe he raped one person at each of those places. 

I did look up Dayton. Rob Lowe. 

A. who knew he was from Dayton?
B.  in what world is he wiki'd more than the fucking Wright Bros?   St. Elmo's Fire wasn't that good!

It's mindless, yet a good time waster.  It seemed to work better on an iPad than it did on the laptop.

Cool map. I love useless information like this.

I checked Camden and we get: Samuel Ernest Wright, actor and singer best known as the voice of Sebastian in Disney's The Little Mermaid.
