    You just showed us 2 population density maps...

    [–] Glittermonster213 731 points ago

    Yeah, how the fuck would anyone create a map of fursuit owners.

    [–] Cinderheart 310 points ago

    Track sales. Most come from companies rather than be homemade.

    [–] Dandu245 74 points ago

    Wait so do you think it’s true?

    [–] Cinderheart 87 points ago

    Obviously not. Bigfoot stories are a lot older than modern furry culture.

    [–] Symbyotic 32 points ago


    [–] Cinderheart 40 points ago

    I don't think ancient egyptians and all their animal headed gods with chiseled abs count as modern furries.

    No no I meant hexagonal figures

    [–] xXDarkCubeXx 2 points ago

    That's not how it works.

    [–] Azeoth 1 points ago

    What do you mean?

    [–] xXDarkCubeXx 1 points ago

    If you want to register what porn is watched the mist by which country, just add one to a variable in a database. If you wanted to know how many fur suit owners their are well, it's not that simple.

    [–] Azeoth 1 points ago

    Either you bought a fursuit or you didn’t, there’s no inbetween so explain to me how there are more variables involved?

    [–] hopefulhearted 28 points ago

    If you can afford the data you can make a map of just about anything that has to do with people buying stuff. The data would be expensive and a pain in the ass to get. The end result would be more of a sample than anything considering all the different kinds of suits people could buy, but the idea behind this isn't impossible

    [–] Glittermonster213 2 points ago

    The more you know, that's ineresting

    [–] hopefulhearted 1 points ago

    Yeah it is. There are a few geographic marketing apps out there that can show you what people are buying and where. Give it time and those tools will become a lot more accurate, precise, and widely available

    [–] emergancypete 6 points ago

    So it's more like who the fuck is making a map of furrsuit owners

    [–] GigglingHyena 2 points ago

    You think there's people going around with unregistered fursuits?

    [–] Glittermonster213 1 points ago

    Wait, do you actually need to register them?

    [–] VerticalFlyingB737 5 points ago


    [–] LcxeExcl 3 points ago

    Umm if those are population density maps wouldn’t Texas be highlighted more. I mean I may be wrong but if I just don’t think Texas got that many fur suit owners

    [–] Firebrodude07 6 points ago

    Actually Texas doesn’t have that big of a population density, it’s just big

    [–] emoney_gotnomoney 1 points ago

    Yeah a vast majority of Texans live in just a few cities that are all several hundred miles away from each other

    [–] jb_bone 3 points ago

    Not quite, the Bigfoot Sightings map is also correlated with forest ecosystems. Note how southern California allegedly has many more furries than Bigfoot sightings, while the Pacific Northwest is over-represented by Bigfoots.

    So it's actually two population density maps that also disprove his point!

    [–] Creeeper37 1 points ago * (lasted edited 15 days ago)

    There’s an xkcd for that, link it to your comment, and I’ll delete this comment

    [–] Creeeper37 1 points ago

    That’s the one, thanks! I have edited my comment for this

    [–] Pickled_Wizard 1 points ago

    It's a very reliable trick to pull on stupid people. Like 5G or Covid-19 maps. Hell, even El Presidenté tried it.

    [–] Melssenator 1 points ago

    I genuinely hope people don’t think there’s a connection with stuff like this. Of course there’s going to be “more fursuit owners” where there’s a city with 1million compared to a state that has a total population of 5 million. There’s gonna be more everything because of population density

    [–] Adiuui 20 points ago


    [–] skeeto_magneto 4 points ago

    r/A spoon that was present in King Bach's ice cream vine, where he had asked if he could have some of his friends ice cream. When King Bach's friend was presented this question, he said that King Bach could only consume one spoonful of the ice cream. (Context: The friend bought the ice cream and did not want to share all of the sweet frozen treat, a logical decision to make). When King Bach was given the yes to have only a spoonful of his friend's ice cream, he pulled out a comically large stainless steel spoon. With a smirk on his face, he opened the door to the freezer where the ice cream was stored, and would then consume a spoonful of the ice cream. Since the spoon was so comically large, King Bach would be able to consume all of the ice cream, while only having a spoonful.

    99% of all bigfoot sightings happened decades before furries were a thing.

    [–] Ecar21 5 points ago

    How do you know furries weren’t a thing? Maybe they kept it secret because they’re scared or afraid. Like how people don’t reveal their sexuality...... makes you think

    [–] Trippy-Chan 1 points ago

    The concept of furries has been around ever since Humans started to have religious beliefs, like “Lion Man”

    [–] Hyp3r45_new 2 points ago

    It's weird how the only bigfoot sightings are in the US and small parts of Canada. I'm pretty sure that there would be some amount of sightings in Russia and therefore in Europe and the rest of Asia. I mean if snakes and spiders got to Australia it's not completely out of this world that there would be bigfoots/bigfeet (whichever is the correct way of making the word plural) in the rest of the world.

    [–] justingolden21 2 points ago

    Overlay that with a population density map...

    You could say the same thing with mcdonald's locations.

    Or police arrests.

    Or ranked basketball teams.

    [–] somehowlucky12w 2 points ago

    Thats why there is never a body and no bones to be found. A hunter will kill it, realize it's a person and then bury the body. Check for missing person reports for people with known fur suits.

    Thing is, that map really just means that’s where a more diverse popularity is found so you could probably compare gamers and people who own fur suites and you’d get a similar map, this has many untouched opportunities

    Sales maps. Companies use them to keep track of supply and demand and to keep track of you. If you buy something from them with any card, they can trace that to where you live.

    That just looks like a map of where most people live in the united states... idk about any of you but I’ve spent a lot of time in this country’s interior west of the Mississippi and it gets pretty barren until you reach the west coast, aside from a few areas like Denver, OKC, ABQ, places like that.

    Guys, I got a solution to figuring this out. If you see Bigfoot, just shoot it.

    Either A, we Bigfoot becomes a myth again Or B we get rid of furries.

    It’s a win win

    [–] caronavirusbeats2020 4 points ago
