8.865 million people in NJ. 459 per squared kilometer - #1 in the nation for population density.

Netherlands is 404 per squared kilometer.

27/50, we're pretty typical. If anything we all should gang up on South Dakota or something.

Some looking around Wikipedia says that the only state in the US with a higher population density than the Netherlands is New Jersey (although Rhode Island is close) with the US as a whole at less than a tenth of the population density of the Netherlands.

Oregon even has only a 25th of the population density of the Netherlands... Just how @#%^ing empty is it 'round there?

Edit: Alaska is 41.35 times the size of the Netherlands while the Netherlands has a population about 25 times as large. No wonder they elected Sarah Palin, they must all be so far apart that you can't see the crazy anymore.

They have a density of 4.19 per squared kilometer. Smiley: lol

Alaska is 1.26, but c'mon. That's because nearly all people in Alaska are near the coast, and then it's just totally empty land.

Wyoming, however, is 2.26 per kilometer squared. What's their excuse? Smiley: mad

It's that no one wants to live in Wyoming.

Where I am? It's decently full. Not astounding by any means, but there are people around. The problem is most of the eastern part of the state, and really the south east, is basically deserted.

Here's a fun map. Each dot is 100 people, notice how few dots there are in the lower right. Those 2 counties in that corner are over 50,000 sq. km. in size and have fewer than 40,000 people.

We have a similar thing going on.
Population density 2012
per county
people per km2


We don't have any truly empty land though, we had to create some new land for a reason.

You guys have always had some good ingenuity there for sure. I'm not sure I'd want to live there though. But maybe that's just me, we don't have such a good track record with protecting areas that are below sea level from flooding.

I bet your land is actually useful though, unlike this kind of thing where there's really no reason to live anywhere near there. At least no economicly viable reason, some people like getting away from stuff, and we usually try to encourage them to do so.

That's why you hire Dutch companies after a storm, our last serious disaster was in 1953 after all and the Dutch started getting the water out of lakes for more land in the 1500's, although the first significant and large one was the Beemster.

There's some kind of poster presentation conference thingy going on in the atrium of my building, right outside my window. SO MANY NERDS.

And only one of them is cute.

It is and there's actually some limited tourism and what not. Problem is there are prettier places that are closer, and there's a lot more land than people who want to visit it. Some parts people let cows and stuff walk around on, much of it doesn't even work for that though.

Too much work, too many nerds. I love science, but half of my building belongs to various genetics and life sciences research labs.

Just imagine 200 geneticists. Lots of Asians, Indians, and posters with ridiculously boring titles.

Here you go. Took all of about 20 seconds of googling.

Okay, there is something wrong with my brain. I read that, and when it got to the part where they said "My brother is my boyfriend, and I am his boyfriend. He is my lifeblood, and he is my only love." I was all "Awww, that's so sweet!" Then I remembered my reaction to the whole Cersei and Jaime Lannister thing and realized I have a ****** up double standard.

Also, whoever sent me the anonymous link via pm to those boys' tumbler, shame on you. But thanks for giving me a laugh. I was highly amused that someone would send me a link to **** gifs and pics, even after I said I don't really like **** that much.

You really need to get down in the weeds and look at population density by county if you want a decent idea.Screenshot
Wikipedia wrote:
2000 U.S. population density in persons per sq. mile (contiguous U.S. only). Averaged on a per-county basis.
Legend, light to dark (white to dark blue):
0-1 (white)
1-4 (yellow)
5-9 (yellow-green)
10-24 (green)
25-49 (teal)
50-99 (dark teal)
100-249 (blue)
250-66,995 (violet)


Looking at that you can see why we here refer to New Jersey as one long parkway. You can also see that Wyoming has an average of about 7 people per square mile, in my guesstimation. That's less than two families.

EDIT: I think 7 may actually be high.

EDIT: Hold on, teal? Is that really a color?
