Red vs. Blue reloaded

Kevin Drum at Washington Monthly posts a map of red vs. blue counties, and asks his readers "Can you guess what this map represents? Click the graphic for the answer if you give up. Hint: it's got nothing to do with politics." More discussion is here, here, here, here, and so on. A larger version of the map is here ( created by Matthew T. Campbell at East Central University in Oklahoma, based on a data from a survey by Alan McConchie located at this site). A larger (and more scientifically interesting) set of similar maps, presenting data gathered by Bert Vaux and others, can be found here.
