With some time on my hands, entered and broke down where our people are from. Right now, I only did the stats from the United States brothers. Will do the foreign ones next time. For data, used the thread that James C just bumped up.
We comprised of men from 43 of the 50 United States.
The top five member states were:
1st Place - a tie between Texas and California
2nd Place - Florida
3rd Place - New Jersey
4th Places - New York
No surprises there based on current population trends.
13 states are represented by 1 member only.
North Dakota, South Dakota are among states with no members, still trying to figure out the other missing states.
I was curious about this breakdown, perhaps others are as well.
