A woman in the park was struck by a speeding bicyclist and is now reportedly brain-dead.

If every state held a vote on its seceding from the United States, I wonder what the national margin would be.

If you like to see maps of countries you don't live in slowly filling with color -- man, do I have you covered.

Out of tradition, vote counts in Scotland must last until St. Andrew's Day in November.

Shortly after all of the vote-counting is done, King William V will certify the results.

It's slow, is my point. Slow counting.

If no council areas are a majority "Yes," it will be hard for the Yes side to win. (must credit philip bump)

Reminder: Scotland let 16 year-olds vote, which means they let high school sophomores weigh in on the fate of the country, which is funny.

It's actually pretty interesting how the vote immediately around Glasgow varies.

Whoever was in charge of turnout in Glasgow: Oops.

Hey Scotchies, it would be great if the giant area up north turned in results so my map looked more complete; thanks in advance.

SCOTLAND NOT YET A WRAP AS FIFE DOGS RESULTS

It is completely ridiculous that this is how we count votes in 2014.

The last thing I want to say about Scotland before returns come in is that I am very disappointed by how few Trainspotting jokes I saw.

The precision and intricacy of it is so perfect for the medium. He's alarmingly talented.
