    Problem spelling some of those words?
    Easy!

    Change "giraffe" to-----Long Necks!
    Change "liar" to--------Any Politician!
    Change "tomorrow" to----Well, golly, tomorrow's Thursday!!

    Interesting, though, that Wisconsinites can't even spell their own state's name!!
    Three states have problems with pneumonia!
    Alaskans can't spell---schedule??
    Heh.
    Maybe because they have 24 hours of darkness or sunshine!!

    Interesting map from NYT about how your county matches the past, present, future of America ethnically.

    Fascinating, for some reason.. surprising (to me) how many counties are no longer majority white.. interesting (to me) that two of the whitest counties are Garfield Co., NE (98%) and Garfield Co. MT (97%).. also interesting (to me) that while they have blacks and hispanics, "Native Americans" are hidden somewhere in "other"..

    Mine is 2022, and I'm surrounded by old people.

    My county is 1982. I have also lived in counties that are 2011 and 2012. I enjoyed living in those places much more than my current place, and plan to go back to one of them once I retire.

    This was fun but I pecked away at this too long.
    As I understand it, the map compares the present ethnicity of each county to the ethnicity of the entire US at a past or future year.
    So why are there wide variations in percentages between states with same year projection match?

    Yavapi Co. AZ purportedly matches the US percentages for 2017 at 77 White, 3 Black,14 Hispanic, 4 Other. I do not believe those reflect current ethnicity of the US
