Some maps are useful.

This one lets you map post-industrial parts of Britain to post-industrial parts of America:

I dare you to find a more useful one!

(I live in Britain's equivalent to Richmond, Indiana. Where do *you* live?)

Personally, I'm about a hundred kilometres east of Hull, in the water. Yay! Any chance of colouration for the industries in the UK?

Somewhere in the Norwegian Sea, east of Jan Mayen, based on a vague look at a map of Europe.

you're not posting useful maps

here is another useful one. with it, you can predict how hairy a foreigner (male, but probably also with some use for women) is likely to be:

Japan yes, but the increase by Arabia is vastly more due to the Suez Canal than the sultanates and emirates opening up to trade.

By air, yes. I was speaking only of sea traffic.

As for panama eh I look at the volume going through the Drake Passage and compare it to that going through Panama and don't see a whole lot of difference, so that's just a one for one exchange in my book.

I would not have expected Frankfurt to be the global center of air networks, but I guess that is why theirs is the only airport that is not absolutely fucking painful to navigate.

Perhaps it's the other way around—it's become the centre by virtue of not being absolutely fucking painful to navigate?

explain, then, the phenomenon of people still transferring at heathrow

(the explanation is that they are masochists and cannot live without something to be loudly miserable about. this is the same reason people set out to live in horrible marshlands, and, given the pool i am drawing from here, those two phenomena must be related.)
