Slate has a list of “death maps” featuring each state of the union and the most common ways to die in each of them. We, of course, immediately jumped to look at Pennyslvania: Lots more maps, and lots more info in them. The short takeaway? Pennsylvanians are more likely to die in accidents, or from heart disease, than most Americans. And we’re not really surprised by that. We’re less likely to die of stroke or respiratory disease, and even diabetes, than most Americans. So what does this mean? Best as we can tell: Pennsylvanians are very, very, life-threateningly angry. So chill out.
