    Another kind of mapping, maybe... We've been having fun recently going outside to watch the quick transit overhead:

    Thank you! I'll be staring at that stuff for days. And now I've got some evidence about beer to show to my snooty wine-drinking friends.

    Beersnots can be as snooty as winos
    Pours a breathtaking pitch black with a cumulonimbus head. Heavy lacing. Off-putting esthery nose, with just a hint of cilantro and tartness. Stunning yeasty flavor, punctuated with sour milk and grapefruit. Hearty yet effervescent mouthfeel and slightly dry finish.
    :wink:

    Pours a turbulent chestnut with a miniscule head. The faintest hint of lacing. Thick musty aroma, accompanied by grapefruit and pecans. Nightmarish bready palate, with notes of coffee and hops. Extremely weak mouthfeel and long finish
    :?

    How about this one... The language map of England which shows where up to 40% of people say English is not their mother tongue.

    This is the language map of England which reveals the parts of the country where as many as two in five people do not have English as their mother tongue.

    New data shows the proportion of people across who say English is not their main language ranging from 0.7 per cent in Redcar and Cleveland to 41.4 per cent in Newham in London.

    The breakdown from the 2011 national census also revealed the second most commonly spoken language in the country is now Polish.
