I received an email earlier this evening announcing a hot new version of Google Analytics. Since I'm putting off packing for C&W, I clicked around in it for a couple of minutes. Most of what I found was impressive, highly detailed, analytical, and so on. But when I zoomed in on the U.S., something was off. Michigan, the state where I was born and raised, the land of Vernors and Koegels (milk and honey, bah!), appeared malformed.
I zoomed in once again and found the same funky shape, only larger.
This can only mean one of the following:
- The designer at Google Analytics had one too many Old Milwaukees for lunch.
- The U.P. has, in fact, always been the shape of the stock of a shotgun.
- Four of the Great Lakes have been bulldozed after all of that precious fresh water was leeched by a Las Vegas irrigation swindle.
- Google Analytics is consulting with a cartographer from Monroe who mistakenly used his whole arm for a quick-map.
