Sometimes I get bogged down by how much work there is to do in the world. There are so many problems to be fixed — the economy, international relations, addressing the national pleated pants issue. It’s like we can only invest so many hours in the day to fixing it all.
And then there’s this — an interactive map of The Simpson’s hometown of Springfield. It has everything from the staples of Moe’s and Monty Burns’ estate to obscure, nerds-only landmarks like Fireworks, Candy and Puppydogs and Styx and Stones Records.
Holy crap, you guys. Can you image the level of research that went into this? Just in terms of sheer labor in time invested. I’m not thinking that the creators of this map were deciding between this and curing cancer, but wow. Just wow.
