Back in 2009, a research team at Kansas State created these maps of the 7 deadly sins per capita. Interesting.
See more at Wired.
Just to clarify, the magenta represents high levels of sin, the yellow green low.
It’s worth noting that the Greed map closely tracks overall per capita income. Which I suppose means that there are about the same number of poor people everywhere.
I was surprised that violent crime doesn’t seem to be concentrated in urban areas. I thought Chicago had a high murder rate?
I wonder why there’s such a high rate of STD in the Black Hills?
I was surprised that violent crime doesn’t seem to be concentrated in urban areas.
It’s all been normalized per capita.
Sloth – Expenditures on art, entertainment, and recreation compared with employment.
I don’t know about that. I’m too lazy to expend effort, let alone money; on art, entertainment and recreation. I’d rather lay around the shanty and put a good buzz on.
This is interesting.
It seems to me that obesity rates would be a better indicator of gluttony, though.
Yeah, it doesn’t seem like they chose very good factors to determine sloth, gluttony and lust.
The way it is formulated it may a powerful argument pro or against sex-ed.
Hmm, it seems the south has the most magenta. It seems the bible belt has the most. Having lived there I’m not surprised in the slightest.
But they don’t lead in holier-than-thou attitudes.
The funniest thing was seeing Grand Theft Auto under Envy. lol
Their way of calculating Sloth seems really stupid too.
The greed map is interesting however.
O man! Do you want to make your brief and useless life immortal, long, beneficial, and fruitful? Since such a wish is demanded by humanity, spend your life on the way of the Truly Enduring One. For everything turned to that Eternal One receives the manifestation of immortality.
My area is apparently really into wrath. Lovely.
