US seen by Californians and The World seen by Americans.
Category: Funny Bits

Probably the most popular map on the internet for the past month was this representation of United States as seen by Californians: Religious Nutballs in the East, Fake Cowboys in Texas, Old people are of course in Florida, the area around Vegas, Coffee area, the loud and obnoxious New Yorker’s area, and northern area around the lakes seen as part of Canada.
How Californians see America

How New Yorkers see AmericaIt is a quite funny and hilarious view that lead to many discussions and new maps drawn by other fellow Americans, the loud and obnoxious New Yorkers quickly reviewed the map into this (see right) while others demanded California be a new country, Texan cowboys said they had their own republic once and that could be an option again. Others went even further stating there should definitely be NoCal & SoCal (for Northern and Southern parts of California), or start wondering where did Alaska and Hawaii disappeared.

Speaking of New Yorkers actually, here’s the view they have for the world, as seen from the 9th avenue:
