Dorothy Gambrell made this map for Psychology Today and it reveals some rather enlightening facts (or confirms assumptions we had) of each state. Like it totally makes sense that New York has the most Craigslist Missed connections in the subway. Same for Hawaii and the beach. It also maybe kind of makes sense that California has an obsession with fitness. But man oh man, some of these other popular spots for missed connections are HILARIOUS.

Missed connection at Walmart.

Me: Riding my trusty chubbyscooter like a stallion, wearing my (it is a joke, I swear) 'no fat chicks' baseball cap, brown 'I Shaved My Balls For This?' hoodie (it is also a joke), the transistor radio in my basket was playin 'Corn Star'.

You: in your grey sweatpants with black patches where they had been let out, white facial mud mask, orange 'Slavery Gets Shit Done' t-shirt.

Our eyes met briefly over the diabetus test strips, and I swear something magical passed betwixt. I would have said something but at that point I swallowed some of my chewin' tabaccy and when I had ceased choking my beyootiful vision was gone.

No phone, but you can find me Monday-Saturday (Sunday bein' the Lord's day) at Joe's Sports Bar. Ask for Beefcake, or I am always wearing the same thing.
