There are roughly 11,000
Starbucks locations in the United States, and about 14,000
McDonald's restaurants. But combined, the two chains don't come
close to the number of museums in the U.S., which stands at a
are more museums in the U.S. than there are Starbucks and McDonalds
– combined - The Washington Post
As weird as it may seem,
it does appear to be true.
Even lowly Brevard, NC,
which has one (1) McDonalds
and one (1) Starbucks,
(count them, three)
- The Silvermont Mansion
- The Transylvania Heritage Museum
- The Allison-Deaver House
even Lincoln County, Nevada,
(home to the Little A'Le'Inn)
a county with a population less than Brevard,
has two museums:
- Railroad Depot & Boxcar Museum
- Lincoln County Museum
I can believe that there are more museums in the US than McDonalds and Starbucks combined.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
