Spoken like a Michigander
"It's hard to do Florida with your hand!" -Big Frog Maryland is a right-hand gun, with Columbia as the base of the trigger. Pennsylvania is a flat left hand, palm up with the thumb partly tucked in, and Harrisburg is about the join of the pinky and ring finger. And of course Michigan is a left-hand mitten, and if you need to do the Upper Peninsula, use your right hand palm up with the left hand above, palm down. Detroit is the base of the thumb on the left-hand mitten. We even map China to the hand - an angled left hand, palm up. Hong Kong is the base of the pinky. Kunming, Yunnan is in the fleshy part at the base of the thumb. But how do you map Florida with a hand?
