Final Summer re-run of '08 (Long Weekend eh) and the ensuing exchange in the Comments (26/09/06) was prolly the most fun that I ever had Blogging ((sigh)) and would be a perfect place to stop.
THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
IS WAY OUT OF LINE!
No really..I mean literally.
I was looking at the map of the USA and it occured to me that their state lines are all wonky. This causes unnecessary stress in these troubling times.
Americans prefer straight highways, straight people and straight borders!
America needs some 'quiet time' anyway.
A chance to stop and think about what they are doing to the world. So why not start by cleaning up those crazy ass borders?
First of all look at Alaska...
HEL-LO ! Any idiot can see that it is part of Canada! Now that the Cold War is over we don't need the 'Merkins eyeballing the Ruskies so give it back you weiners.
*Not that we need any more land but it is the principle of the matter.
Now the Western part of the USA isn't terrible but I do have a few suggestions...
Straighten out the bottom border of Washington, and the east side of Oregon..they should both be a little more rectangular.
California is totally screwing Nevada with that diagonal line..
Give Me a Break Montanee, ..form a nice rectangle and chop off the end ..there is nobody living there anyway..Idaho is gettin' totally pooched!.
Utah, wtf is that little cheat at the top there..fix that...
New Mexico you get to go straight down on the right side all the way to Old Mexico...
North Dakota/South Dakota/Nebraska/Coloradee and Kansas that's about as good as it is gonna get and nobody cares anyway....
Oklahoma go right ahead and cut yourself a BIGASS piece from Texas.
Louisiana, you little weasel, give Mississippi all of that shoreline at the Gulf of Mexico..Oh crap that means that you get New Orleans ..aren't you lucky?
The rest of the map looks like it was a hallucinagenic speed-drawing done by an amateur Gynecologist on Day 6 of giving up smoking!
In fact the Eastern State Lines were decided upon by seriously drunk dudes dressed in white wigs who had no frickin clue that there was still about 3 million square miles of land available over to the left! What a mess.
I could have pulled a better map out of my ass!
There, that is my suggestion and it seems simple enough.
I certainly hope that Canada gets Alaska back because that is just plain rude!
