Submission + - OkCupid plots personal questions geographically ( 2

Mark writes: "The dating site OkCupid posted some interesting graphs which draw from their 300,000 response data set of personal, user-contributed questions. This is the first post in their new blog, and has graphs showing: Croatia and Nevada lead in acceptance of rape fantasy, as opposed to New and old England; frequency of bathing in the US has a strong north-south bias (northerners report showering less frequently); and, plotted by lattitude/longitude instead of state or country, we find that "only people in cities believe flag burning should be legal". (OkCupid also points out that their data set compares quite favorably with the 2008 Gallup election poll, at 100x that survey's 3,050 response.)"

The hardest part of climbing the ladder of success is getting through the crowd at the bottom.
