Mapping the Seven Deadly Sins

I'm not sure if this is good science, but it is quite fun. Researchers at Kansas State University plotted data related to different sins in order to map their distribution across the U.S. The above map for lust, for example, was based on the rate of STD infection.

Here's a case for seeing one's own community as a mission field: we got it all, except sloth & wrath. We're just touched a little with gluttony. Guess I've got work to do. Except maybe I'm too lazy, pissed, and fat.

No lust in Minnesota.

I work at a college.

Let's say that's not what I hear.

Well, IC, remember that it's a measure of STD infection, not sexual activity. That probably just means that your students are using condoms ;)
