Here’s a cute little time lapse of the subway system in Moscow by Sasha Aleksandrov. I hope you enjoy it. If the video doesn’t display for you, click here.

Bars, Bookstores, Bowling Alleys, and Adult Entertainment

The cool blog Floating Sheep is out with another infographic, this one showing regions of the country by which of four search terms shows up the most: bars, bookstores, bowling alleys, or adult entertainment establishments. What’s the hot ticket in your town?

    What is the infographic telling us?

    For red/bars.

    Do the people in those areas have a relatively higher preference for bars?


    Are bars relatively more scarce and thus their locations need to be researched?

    I know what this infographic tells me — the bars/bookstores divide parallels the north/south divide in the nation quite well. And where bowling alleys are most numerous is the transition between north and south (and west).

    Portland, OR is infamous for having more adult bookstores than any place else–yet is green. Do adult bookstores count as bookstores, or as adult entertainment? :)

  4. the urban politician says:

    No surprises here.

    People in the upper midwest like to drink.

    People in the south and in Nevada like lap dances.

    People in New England like to read

    Hey, I’m pretty surprised that people in the South like to read so much.
