Hey, I got it right away! Tongue This is just the first time I looked at it.

But it's been there 10 days already.

The shading is important; the color is irrelevant.

Note that there are only five different shades.

Well, it's non-political.  Try and think about what the darkest states all have in common, and why Maine is the only lightest shade.

Are the shades degrees of something or are they five different categories with each state fitting in the relevant category?

Um, both perhaps?  Grin

Let's just say that lighter shades mean that there are less of something, while darker shades mean more of the same thing.

Oh, I know ! Cheesy

It's the number of syllables of a State's name. Wink

Joe, that map is not correct at all!

Penn-syl-vay-nyuh and Ca-li-for-nyuh only have four syllables each! Tongue

People say things differently though.
Like for me...
Penn-y-sl-van-ia - I say "penny" then "slvania"
Cal-fornia - I always drop the i

Yes...I noticed that Massachusetts and Pennsylvania are shaded differently even though they both have 4 syllables. (I pronounce the last three letters of the latter as one syllable.)

I was pretty subjective with some of them.  I tend to pronounce the 'ia' at the end of CA and PA as two syllables, but the same letters at the end of VA, WV and GA as one.  Go figure.

Pennyslvania?  You realize that's the spoken equivalent of a typo, right?

Maybe some kind of "sandbox" mode could be added, because it's a bit too annoying to go in and edit the color code.

Er...a libertarian-esque Republican candidate, and a moderate Democrat?

Half right. The Democrat ticket I had in mind was Dave Freudenthal/Russ Feingold.

I would've guessed a libertarian-esque Democrat ticket and a moderate Republican ticket myself.
