Where each stat’s largest immigrant population was born in 1910 & 2010 [634x950]CLICK HERE FOR MORE MAPS!thelandofmaps.tumblr.com

A lot of us forget just how many German immigrants settled all over the U.S. Do we all speak German? Dress up in Lederhosen? Listen exclusively to polka and/or techno music? So many good things came from German immigrants: good sausage, good beer, Kindergarten, universal education. As a country, we took their good ideas and made them our own.
That is the beauty of an open society, the new ideas and energy that new people bring with them. And after a few generations, the immigrants themselves become an integral part of the society and cease to be immigrants at all.
Why then do some think that Mexican immigrants have any less to contribute? Is Cinco de Mayo somehow less fun or meaningful than Oktoberfest? Would we honestly prefer a country without tacos and chile rellenos? More seriously, do we truly not see the potential in their hands and minds and hearts?
Sure, illegal immigration is a problem, but we are the ones who built the broken system. We are the ones whose economy relies on immigrant labor, but who cannot bring ourselves to accept those immigrants as a part of our lives. We forget that the U.S. was built by and for immigrants. We forget that our diversity and willingness to assimilate new people and ideas are what have made us a great country.
Sorry for the rant. Fox news has really been irking me lately.

Did you know that one of the world’s most endangered species of bird is a crow?  The Hawaiian crow—ʻAlalā to native Hawaiians—is a species of crow endemic to Hawaii and is currently extinct in the wild, but conservation efforts to save and breed the species has taken the captive population to over 100 birds.  Expected reintroduction dates for this species are tentatively set for 2014.  Here’s a blog article (with video) about the progress of the Hawaiian crow.

Just imagine the Avengers going to Ikea, and Thor is the only one who can pronounce the name of anything. 

This is disproportionately hilarious to me.
