Since all states have rich and poor I wondered how they made that map. They've grafted the states by Gini Coefficient.

Janitor wouldn't compare to boilermaker, but a bigger leap than a doctor... percentage of the market wise, not income.

Griff, when you were young and fire in the belly idealistic, you set goals like building your house, contribute more than 50% in raising your kids, getting educated and certified to help the most needy people in America.

You not only built your house, you built a timber frame home from fucking TREES. You did that while playing Mr Mom and raising two great kids that know what they want and are almost ready to twist the world's tail. Oh, wasn't there a wife going to school in there too?

Then you got yourself educated plus all the extra stuff to follow your special choice of careers, and the bullshit dog and pony show of getting certified and verified, even thought you'd proven you were qualified. All this while maintaining tight family ties, with the wife and kids knowing you were there anytime they needed you

As frustrating as your job is, or actually the assholes on the periphery of your job are, I don't think you could walk away from the kids. You could only become a boilermaker if the assholes in Harrisburg get reelected in November and further cut spending, forcing you out completely.

Now you're uh, well... wizened, wiser, and sober, you did it. You did it well and maintained your integrity to boot. Nothing but respect man, you ain't Superman but you're as close as anyone I've ever known of.


Oh, can I borrow $10?

Jawbone, the company that was able to map earthquake intensity in California a few months ago by noting which wearers of their device woke up during an earthquake, is at it again.

Here is their US map of when users go to sleep. A really cool thing shows that people on the eastern side of time zones go to bed earlier than those on the western side, presumable because it gets dark in the East sooner.

Brooklyn is the only county in the US that goes to sleep (on average) after midnight.

I wish I could imbed the interactive map, but I don't know how. Click the link above.

Here is a screenshot of the static map.

Update: The author is embarrassed to note he’d never heard the song “No Sleep Till Brooklyn” until the day this post was published.

I had to find this out, and thought someone else may find it handy/interesting.
