Pennsylvania hates New York? When did this happen.

Diogenes: Idaho - Ireland because potatoes.

Gee, how creative.


They also both start with an I and are in-bred.

Texas would hook up with China? But they took our jorbs!

Jument: The mapping for WA actually makes sense, so I'll buy it.

Gary-L: The women in Thailand are a lot better looking, have their teeth, and rarely, if ever, tip the scales over 105lbs.

But most of them are dudes, if the internet has taught me anything.

Nevermind the tremendous amounts of memory chips and sugar produced.  Or that it's likely the yogurt you ate today came from here.

That is the most tenuous set of comparisons ever made. There are maybe 2 or 3 comparisons that can be defended, but only on the basis that "if this country MUST be included, then this state is one of the better ones to compare it to". Honestly, a decent link can be made between the Appilachean states and countries in the mountainy parts of South America. Many people wouldn't believe it if you told them, but there are some decent similarities in the ethos of the areas (especially when you look at the "we're not the richest place, but this is still a nice place to be" mindset).
And no US state I have been to is comparable to Russia. Russia is huge and has massive variety of everything, it is more similar to the US as a whole than to any state. MAYBE you could claim similarity to both Dakotas because they produce lots of oil/gas too if my memory is correct, have a lot of land, and can often be quite cold in winter but OK at other times. But that ignores everything related to culture.

Anyway, that article fails. Can't believe it got greenlit.

They missed out on the obvious California-India connection with relatively high numbers of vegetarians and a large population.
 
2014-02-17 06:18:23 PM  
Missouri is Georgia because of caves and wine.

Kansas is Russia because of homophobia.

That basically illustrates the two states completely. Who doesn't love drinking and spelunking?

"Alabama = Finland"

Absolutely stopped reading there.

West Virginia Bhopal as the Carbide plants there are built on the same plan and make the same chemicals that murdered lots of poor people
 
2014-02-17 06:31:57 PM  
They have Michigan as Panama because both have a city named Colon....and they fail to see that Michigan is divided by water as is Panama by the canal?????????? Great choice but incredibly dizzbrained reason by missing the obvious.

Well, that was.

The Germans have a word for that sort of thing: scheißdrekunlustigblog.

Amen brother.

TFA starts out pants-on-head stupid:  Little old Alabama may not be highly ranked for literacy and overall health, but their college football teams sure win some B.C.S. championships. Between Auburn and Alabama, the two schools have won four of the last five. Finland is also no athletic slouch, having won 300 Olympic medals, the most per capita of any country (one for every 18,023 people!)

I assume it didn't improve; that was enough for me to stop reading. Alabamans and Finns have nothing in common. NOTHING. Watching football =/= competing in Olympic sports. Nor does Alabama's topography in any way resemble Finland.
 
2014-02-17 06:52:29 PM  
Indiana comparable to Boliva because both involve culturally primative, overly religious tribalistic morons who'd like to build a gold throne. Judges agree that the analogy stands.

Could be worse.  Look at the state that follows Alabama Alabama.

bluenote13: I stopped reading at Alabama=Finland since most people in Alabama couldn't find Finland on a map of Finland.


Later stinky!  See you in Helsinki!

This is the dumbest goddam thing I've ever read, and I've been on fark for a long time, so that's saying a lot.

thamike: I'm sure this thread will be full of people chiming in about their respective states, so I'll start:

The criteria used for Virginia is unmitigated bullsh*t.  Probably for Afghanistan too.


I couldn't get past the first one. The compared Derpansas with Finland.

nope

Oregon = Jamaica  more likely due to dreadlocks.  Here we call the owners of such "Trustifarians".

Somebody has way too much spare time and way too much drugs.

/yes, that is possible

A lot of sucky countries are going to be really POed when they discover which Southern State they've been matched up with.

Especially Finland, which isn't a sucky country unless you hate chopping wood, talking with real people, ballroom dancing lessons, and cellphones.

Please, give Maine to Finland. Canada's a big country, we can give this game a pass. And they do like word-burning stoves!

What the Hell do Kentucky and France have in common apart from the Colonel's secret recipe?

I just looked. French fries! Of course. You have to have them with the fried chicken.

Mainers know that nothing makes you feel warmer and safer than three or four cords of neatly cut and stacked well-seasoned wood in the wood shed or basement, with a good mixture of kindling, cheap softwood, and solid and scented hardwood for those really long cold nights. A big chunk of birch will get you through anything short of an ice age.

List is fail- Florida would totally hit Australia, Greece or the Philippines.
 
2014-02-17 07:45:26 PM  

Gary-L: I'm in Oklahoma, which that blog equates to Thailand.

I've been to Thailand, and although both Oklahoma and Thailand may incarcerate women at higher than average rates the comparison stops there.  The women in Thailand are a lot better looking, have their teeth, and rarely, if ever, tip the scales over 105lbs.


As someone who has been to a Hooter's in Oklahoma, I can vouch that Thailand is not an apt comparison. Maybe Bulgaria..

SOUTH KOREA?!??! FARK!

Their speedskaters are the fuel for so much of my rage this Olympics.

The rest of the population is cool, though.

I feel stupiderer for even clicking that link.
 
2014-02-17 07:57:27 PM  
Here, let me show you how this is properly done:

The Failed States:

North Korea = North Carolina (They're both undemocratic and completely in the dark for the last 60 years.)

Myanmar = Tennessee (Tennessee has "fainting goats". Myanmar makes goats faint.)

Cambodia = West Virginia (The skulls are piling up but there's no brains in any of them.)

Afghanistan = Virginia (You'll never get out of it alive.)

Yemen = Arkansas  Just don't go there! You know they're going to try to kill you.

Seychelles = Louisiana (It would be nicer if it weren't for the crazy, the coups, and the State being mostly  underwater and sinking faster than Atlantis.)

Iran = South Carolina, home state of Steve Colbert who works with Jon Stewart who is big in Egypt

Vietnam = Florida (It's those Asian cockroaches, isn't it?

Not totally failed states:

France = Kentucky (Hey, at least their chicken isn't as greasy as Turducken. On the other hand, they eat their French Fries with mayonnaise, just like the South. Weirdos.)

Mexico = Alabama (It's not all as bad as Americans make it sound but I still wouldn't want to live there!)

China = Texas (They're both too farking big for their bloody britches and nobody trusts them, especially to write school text books.)

India = Caliifornia (It's not that bad if you're rich, worship about 400,000,000 strange gods and don't live near the slums.)

Thailand = Oklahoma (Bits of it are yummy but you'll regret it later.)

Italy = Georgia (Ah, the peaches are sweet, but the rest of the state is full of hillbillies and squid and hillbilly squid.)

No. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, yes.

They're not both states with cities named Colon. They are colons!

And that's not water!

Bazinga!

Forgive me. I have cousins in Michigan.

They are listed in the US Census as Italians. And they spelled their names wrong. Apparently they don't recognize Old Colonial American names there.

Michigan. It's Canada's penis and America's glove. No glove, no love, eh?

HairyNevus: Minnesota is Peru, because it is snowy here, and Peru is a large producer of cocaine, a substance which looks like snow.

That might explain their weird choice of Governor (Jesse Ventura) and President (that Japanese dictator, whozitt) respectively.

This.  My entire life here, I've thought we hated New Jersey, not New York...

See, I would have put mountain dwelling cannibal tribes as the similarity.

ciberido: AbiNormal: It doesn't surprise me that NoDaks drink more than Czech's, there isn't anything else to do.

Fun fact: people from the Czech Republic love country music.  You haven't lived until you've heard a cover of a Kenny Rogers song performed in Czech --- Ideally while inside a bar full of drunken Czechs who can laugh at your amazement and befuddlement.

I'm really not sure whether that makes the Czech Republic more or less like North Dakota, however.


Prague Saloon Amerika. Bad: We're going to a tourist trap. Worse: Bouncer on steroids in full leather covered in tats. Gay tourist trap, friends are clueless. Fark: Staight retirement home townie bar with live band and dancing.

The Minnie Driver scene from Goldeneye was never the same...

I think you switched Virginia and Alabama.
Virginia is... I don't know. The northern part is great, it's the southern parts that suck. It's a reverse Korean Peninsula. Is there any country like that? Where the good stuff is in the north, and the craps in the south. Wait, I just discribed the US. Damn.
/Richmond seems alright.
