Did you know ...

That the State with the highest percentage of people who walk to work is Alaska.

That the percentage of Africa that is wilderness is 28%; but the percentage of North America that is wilderness is 38% !!!!!

Not the answers you would have expected are they? I received these interesting tidbits in an email from my father, and was a bit surprised that Alaska is the State with the highest percentage of people who walk to work. However, when I recalled the vast sections of wilderness in Alaska and Northern Canada, coupled with all of our National Parks, I could see how North America would have more wilderness areas than Africa.

I dont know the exact percentage but did you know that a large part of the west coast of Scotland is near uninhabitable. There are a few houses dotted around and farmsteads but not many people live there.

Bye everyone, it was a blast

That is interesting. It reminds of having been told many years ago that Pennsylvania (at the time the 4th most populated State) had the largest rural population in the United States. I recall checking and verifying that this was true at that time, but it was over 20 years ago, so it may no longer be accurate.
