I really dig maps. I do geospatial work as part of my job and I love a variety of maps on a personal level. I was interested to come across this “mashup”. Now, I agree with the original author that Sens. Coburn and McCain might be going a litle overboard on some of these projects, but overall, I think they’re right. Scroll around and click through to see some of them.
Close to me in the Maryland area, you can find $219,000 for a year long study on whether college females are more likely to “hookup” after consuming alcohol. Closer to the Czar, Mandarin and Volgi, you can see that a Chicago entertainment cruise line got $over $943K towards stepping up security – just in case terrorists were to seize the dinner-and-a-dance riverboat. Of course, we all still believe President Obama’s claim that the Stimulus Bill had no pork in it.
GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
