Crossposting from the wordle thread:

I’ve managed to try out a few strategies and I’ve gotten a few words in five guesses but I can’t seem to do any better than that.


Kinda fun

I’ve been trying to see if I can end up with a word that has a “Q” in it. Haven’t found one yet. I have gotten “Z”.


A map with birthplaces of notable people

Notable people

Using data from Morgane Laouenan et al., the map is showing birthplaces of the most “notable people” around the world. Data has been processed to show only one person for each unique geographic location with the highest notability rank. Click below to show people only from a specific category.

Made by Topi Tjukanov.

Inspired by People Map of the U.S by The Pudding.

Interesting to look at the notability indexes. Obama is #1 and Trump is #2. Adolf Hitler is 4. Michael Jackson is 6 and Elvis is 10. Nelson Mandela is 15.
