    Aliens visit the UK regularly, the Tripods won't take long to surface.

    Please. Brexit is actually a sound strategy. With no imports there will be no need for pepper pots in people's homes, thereby depriving Daleks of any natural camouflage. That, coupled with a return to 19th-century staircase-centred homebuilding, shall thwart their invasion.

    I found a pretty cool site that shows all the underwater cables used for telecommunications. Turns out that there are a lot.

    The original charters of the Connecticut colony (and others I forget) stated that their borders stretched literally until the opposite coastline. That would mean Connecticut should include parts of Ohio, Illinois, Missouri, Nebraska, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, and California. Texas and Idaho have accomplished what Connecticut was once set to do. Good job, states!

    It keeps resetting to the lowest resolution possible, therefore rendering itself illegible. :(

    Does this say more about the general income or more about the price of beer?
    While the richest countries can afford more, they also seem to be the beer drinker nations (except Spain, which is not a beer country, and Czech/Slovakia, which are not on the top income-wise, but are beer nations). And the poorer countries, which can afford less, are more the hard booze nations which probably don't produce as much.

    tl;dr: I think besides the obvious meaning, I think there are hidden correlations in the graph.
