    All I get are red xs - but I will click the link, looks interesting.

    ETA - just checked the link, yay - my whole section of the state is 10-49.9, and that must be a funny average, since there are wilderness areas and mountains without any human beings at all!

    Here is another way to look at all the people in the world. A math quiz. If you took all the people on earth and stood them shoulder to shoulder,toe to toe how large of an area will it take?

    I didn't expect to see more people in east TN hills than I did over here in west TN...maybe they don't count river rats? Seems to be less density there.

    From knowing what the area looks like where I live I can almost certainly say - the map sucks. Are they counting graveyards or something.

    Speaking of graveyards...did you know that, if you live within 10 miles of one, they won't bury you in it?
    You say 'trigger-happy cowboy' as if it were a bad thing.
    No surrender; No retreat!
    If we fight, victory is not certain; if we do *not* fight, defeat surely is.
    If they come hunting for me; they can consider themselves lucky if they *don't* find me.

    Maybe in Texas, but my mother's graveyard is 8 miles from where she lived.

    You didn't catch it. The key word is "LIVE" not 'lived'. You see, they don't bury 'live' people, only dead ones.

    And again, speaking of graveyards,...They are sooo popular that people are just dying to get in them.

    It's a joke...
