American Seven Deadly Sins Mapped

http://u.nu/68i33

“One nation, seven sins: Geographers measure propensity for evil in states, counties.”

Each of the sins has been mapped out according to strict calculations which are quite scientific in their nature.

So anyway it looks like somewhere called Clark County comes out the worst – I’ve googled it and there’s a Clark County in Nevada and one in Washington as well – not sure which one this page is referring to…

Pick The Perp

Think you can tell something about a person just by their appearance? Well you can test this theory out on this site. The nature of the crime is given and you are asked to pick the perpetrator of that crime out of a line-up of 5 people.

Note/ I don’t believe the term ‘perp’ is used anymore by the cops in the States but I don’t live over there so I may well be wrong on that…

Anyway I got 7 right out of 25 and by doing simple maths if it was entirely random I should have got only 5 so maybe there is something to it after all.

this guy probably just sneezed but he looks the part so probably gets arrested all the time

Weird Animal Babies

“Have you ever wondered what the babies of bats, aye-ayes, hedgehogs, echidnas or pygmy marmosets look like?
Well, now you can find out. Unusual as some of these animals are, the babies will surely trigger some awww-inspiring moments.”

Note sure why these are being described as ‘weird’ – surely they’re just little baby animals??

I’d wager that these are baby hedgehogs…
