That is a little disturbing.

Funny how the warmer states tend to end up in the shaded part...

HAH! you're cracking me up over here!

I like the concept, but for some reason it leaves me feeling uneasy. Perhaps this is in part related to the fact that I don't like that Mexico is just left off of the map (it is technically part of North America after all). I really do like the idea of the map though.

Just to clear the reason why Mexico is left off the map is due tot he fact that both Canada & the United States share common incestors, we are both siblings of mother England, we share common blood lines, & no country shares as much culture as our two nations. Of course this reflects in the iea of roots. BTW if the idea of UNA ever happened I see $$$$ in our future. ;)

"incestors"? Interesting typo (or was it on purpose?). :lol:

looks like somebody pulled one of the branches and that's what Florida is.
and shouldn't there be snow on top of the tree?

has anybody gone to the website? the arguments are pretty weak. But this made me chuckle a little "Are Canadians and USAmericans really so different? If English Canada and Quebec can successfully and peacefully share one country, then cannot Canada and the United States do the same?"

USAmericans... as opposed to.... CANADAmericans?

It's an interesting graphic if you don't know anything about the site. Once I did a little reading, it kinda falls apart. Like Mike said, it's "weak". What's this "Mother England" stuff?

Check out the future states section of the site, alot of the data is out of date, with some of it recorded in 2002 which adds to the weakness of that site. Unless the data is compared to more recent statistics then it's irrelevent. You should see the old logo of United North America, it's a map of North America with the American flag drapped over Canada. Most Canadians would be insulted to see that image, therefore out of respect I will not post that on this site.

looks like somebody pulled one of the branches and that's what Florida is.

Interesting idea, however we have to give credit to the individual who made the image, this is one of his first projects, (non-paid) & shows he has some talent for this kind of work.

USAmericans... as opposed to.... CANADAmericans?


Good point
