For your surfing pleasure…

I’m surprised it took the Onion this long to write this story!

This map site is pretty awesome – keep clicking around the menus and sub-menus at the top. I’m particularly a fan of the scaled map of urban mass transit systems and the one showing Manhattan at the same scale as others… I wonder if he could show how many people are contained in each map, compared to the ~1.5m or so in Manhattan.

Also, this simulation of every flight in North America in 24 hours blows my mind.
