That 1609 one, though - that's ambitious...

As a NOVA resident, can we donate everything on the south/west side of an imaginary line drawn between VA beach and Richmond, then from Richmond to Reston, then north to the northern border to like Tennessee or West VA or something? Post

So I roughly estimated the loss of territory amount for these four points, ran a linear regression on it, found the f(x) function, and plugged in 2020 to see how much of Virginia's original claim is still gonna be Virginia: Post

West Virginia. Completely separate from Virginia since 1863. Post

So at Uni I specialised in the history of Barbados in the 17th century, fun fact about the first image, when people bought/stole land in the States back then, they were just straight up given points of longitude and everything west was theirs. They just straight up had no idea how far west it went. Post

Well, see, in 1607, a couple of English dudes landed smack dab in the middle of the Powhatan Confederacy, set up a terrible colony, and claimed half a continent in a pen-and-paper power grab that basically only they and their countrymen believed in. Post

How about no more colonized land period! Let throw all 50 states and returned all annexed land back to its original people’s. Post

Please do it. I lived in Northern VA until recently. Literally separate the NOVA area from the rest. North Virginia. It would be tiny but powerful. Fairfax County decides how Virginia votes anyway XD

I genuinely will never understand why part of the delmarva peninsula belongs to virginia. That's Maryland's. Give it to us and stay on your side of the Chesapeake bay, Virginia. Post

hotcrossbones reblogged with comment2 months ago

normally i add on in the tags, but this is especially funny because some of the counties in Virginia, at least at one point, actually were thinking about becoming part of West Virginia, which would make Virginia smaller, of course. Post

I kinda like the 1609 one cause you know damn well nobody even knew what was out there, much less actually explored it they were just like "alright whatever the fuck might be here, das ours" its like putting your name on a planet that no one actually knows exists yet and everyone living there is just like "the fuck?"
