the highlighted area is where Jason Derulo knows what the girls want. london to taiwan.

new york to haiti

greenland is right out

ummm no offense but new york to haiti should be measured as the area between the two latitudes, not the longitudes. this graph is incorrect and vastly underestimates the total region of the earth in which Jason Derulo knows what the girls want

Even measuring that way, Greenland remains right out, as does the entirity of Brazil.

Have we considered measuring by neither latitude nor longitude but in all area that would extend perpendicular from the diagonal of the two places?There are many different interpretations of the data, and until more is available, we ought not conclude anything at this point.

In light of that, I posit this alternative map of regions where Jason Derulo is potentially claiming where he knows what girls want:

As we can see, if we assume that model, the vast majority of the area where Jason Derulo knows what girls want is either open ocean (the Atlantic, the Mediterranean Sea) or sparsely populated (the northern Sahara, the northern Arabian Desert, various desert portions of Iran and Afghanistan, and the southern Tibetan Plateau). Four of the ten most populated countries on the planet have no territory in it (Nigeria, Brazil, Japan, and Indonesia), and two which do have relatively little territory in it (the US and Russia). It is suggested that for all his boasting, Jason Derulo does not know what a probable majority of the world’s girls want.

Perhaps Jason Derulo’s intention was never to proclaim to be omnipotent to the interests of the female gender. Perhaps he was instead expressing his humanity, or the limits of his knowledge. I applaud Jason Derulo. Jason Derulo is not just another 2 dimensional character. Jason Derulo has depth.Jason Derulo has limitations and has come to terms with them. Jason Derulo knows Jason Derulo. Thats why he makes it a point to say his name so much.

French Mitraleuse 20 shot revolver,
Made in France during the later half of the 19th century, this bizzare revolver features a cylinder which contains 20 chambers allowing for 20 shots before reloading.  A huge pistol, these were too large and heavy for carrying but were mounted on the bow of a small boat.  The pistol was firing using a lanyard strung through the trigger.  The pistols were issued to French customs agents who patrolled the rivers for smugglers. It fired an 11.5mm cartridge.

The Olin Winchester Salvo Rifle,

During the 1950’s the US Military experimented with the concept of a Salvo rifle, a rifle that could increase the probability of hitting a target by firing multiple projectiles with one shot.  Numerous prototypes were created which fired special duplex (two bullet) or triplex (three bullet) cartridges.  The Winchester Salvo was one prototype based off of the FAL.  An extremely bizarre weapon, the Winchester Salvo featured two barrels  and two chambers which fired simultaneously.  As a result, the Winchester Salvo used two magazines at once.  While the Win Salvo was double barreled and fired both simultaneously, it only had one bolt with double extractors, and was operated with one gas system.  It could be operated in semi automatic and fully automatic, and when fired the spent casings were ejected to the left and right.

To increase the Win Salvo’s firepower even further, the weapon used special 5.56 T65 Duplex ammunition.  The T65 Duplex cartridge used 7.62 NATO brass, necked down to 5.56mm.  However the Duplex cartridge featured two 35 grain or 41 grain bullets, with each seated on top of each other inside the cartridge.  Thus when fired, the Duplex cartridge would fire two 5.56 projectiles at once.  With the Winchester Salvo rifle, four projectiles would be fired with each trigger pull.  Obviously when used in fully automatic fire, the Win Salvo sprayed a formidable stream of lead.

The bizarre Winchester Salvo produced by the Springfield Armory for US Army Ordnance testing.  The Army rejected the design for a number or reasons.  First and foremost the firing of two 5.56 T65 Duplex cartridges produced 25% more recoil than a .30-06 M1 Garand.  The Win Salvo was also very heavy, weighing almost 12 pounds, 3 pounds heavier than the standard M14 battle rifle.  Finally the Win Salvo was an ammo hog, firing two magazines worth of ammunition simultaneously.  Remaining prototypes are currently on display at the Springfield Armory Museum.
