Diogenes: Idaho - Ireland because potatoes.Gee, how creative.
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.
uncleacid: Pennsylvania hates New York? When did this happen.
lilbjorn: TFA takes stupid to a whole new level.
Bonzo_1116: They missed out on the obvious California-India connection with relatively high numbers of vegetarians and a large population.
mbillips: 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.
bluenote13: I stopped reading at Alabama=Finland since most people in Alabama couldn't find Finland on a map of Finland.
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.
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.
Kevin72: 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.
HairyNevus: Minnesota is Peru, because it is snowy here, and Peru is a large producer of cocaine, a substance which looks like snow.[i0.kym-cdn.com image 680x626]
abmoraz: uncleacid: Pennsylvania hates New York? When did this happen.This. My entire life here, I've thought we hated New Jersey, not New York...I thought Pennsylvania hated Philadelphia.
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.
brantgoose: 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 EgyptVietnam = 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.)
brantgoose: 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.
