Love the fact that the populated areas are just pure black, while for
the empty areas you can see the individual road houses.  Reminds me
looking at maps of Australia in globes and see what town they have
decided needs to go in the great big empty place that is Australia.  I
can just see the cartographers going, there has to be something there
so lets just pick something to go there.
