A Picture Worth 60 Trillion Burgers (and Words)

Take a look at this demotivational poster, which visualizes the distance to the nearest McDonald's throughout the United States. Notice that the country's borders are not drawn in this picture---the border arises just naturally from the visualization.

The visualization is awesome, but the story it tells is sad (on multiple levels).

Update (11/22/11): Jed Yang told me about this link, where one can find the factoid that one is always within 107 miles of a McDonalds in the contiguous US. The farthest one can get is in South Dakota.
