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.

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?

Michigan is with Panama because they both have a city named Colon?  That's pretty damn weak, even by blog standards.  Obviously the most logical choice would be Japan because cars, or some Pacific island nation because water.  But Panama?  Come on...

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.

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.)

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.

Panama for Michigan would have made enough sense for me to go along with if they'd done a Panama Canal/Soo Locks important lock systems for shipping comparison, but yeah, cities with the same name is just stupid.  You could pick at least a half dozen different countries based on that criteria.

You're being unfair.  I personally believe that Alabama Americans are unable to do so because, uh, some, uh, people out there in our nation don't have maps and, uh, I believe that our education like such as in South Africa and, uh, the Iraq, everywhere like such as, and, I believe that they should, our education over here in the Alabama should help the Alabama, uh, or, uh, should help South Africa and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries, so we will be able to build up our future.

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.


Assuming they are really women, though...

Georgia linked with Italy because of peaches? Georgia produces less peaches than SC, Alabama and California.

There is one county in South Carolina produces more peaches than the entire state of Georgia.

California poops on everyone in terms of total output.


Wisconsin tied with England because of Cheese?

England makes some nice cheeses but wouldn't France, Italy or Switzerland be a more accurate match?

Anticipating something bad, I still wasn't ready for North Korea.  COME ON.  South Carolina:
1. Has very beautiful parts, especially the coastal areas and upstate mountains
2. Has residents that are anything but starving
3. People actually like coming here both to visit and live

However, there is no question that our state is corrupt and the government seems to like keeping people stupid.

With Pennsylvania, they missed an obvious connection between the Turkmenistani "Door to Hell" and Centralia, PA.
