Etymology, mapped.

Just take a look at this and tell me it isn’t as wonderful as it is amusing.pineapple

And thanks to Reddit user Bezbojnicul, via The Guardian, there’s more where that came from.

I was actually looking for something completely different — an old bookmark to 100 Famous Movie Quotes, Visualised — when I found this map, but some fatefully circuitous navigation that would make Dirk Gently proud led me to the treasure trove that is Flowing Data. If you love high-brow infographics, follow my lead.

Oh, and that movie quote thing? Totally worth the search:

afi-movie-quotes-v2-1800

Highlights include King Kong and A League of Their Own. (You’ll get a better view over at the original FlowingData post.)
