    Seven Deadly Sins Mapped

    I don't know the researchers' methodology, and this whole thing seems silly, but I do want to know who the lazy people in South Central Iowa are...

    Wouldn't the Blue on that "Sloth" map indicate that they are a standard deviation away from the mean? Meaning they aren't lazy, and the rest of Iowa (all tan) is lazier?

    I fully admit I could be way off on this, but that was my take.

    You might be right...I may have misinterpreted it.

    Blue is (-) standard deviations (ie. less than the average). Red is (+) standard deviations (ie. more than the average or "bad").

    It WOULD be a K-State study. I call ******** that Las Vegas isn't a national hotspot for lust.

    I will now pray for western South Dakota and their extensive LUST. Is this the zSturgis/Black Hills types hurting their averages? Is that the home of the Jackrabbits?

    Kind of interesting that gluttony is pretty much standard across the whole country.

    I'd imagine the whole country would be red if it were a global map. But there isn't much standard deviation within the US in regard to skinnier parts of the country.

    Interesting how the fattest state in the nation, Mississippi, is no more gluttonous than the rest of the nation. What a moronic "study".
