World On Fire - Mapping Last Week's 88 Global Protests

Feeling like the entire world is on the verge of a global revolution? It's understandable. According to the attached interactive map, based on Google News data, in the past week, there have been 88 reported instances of protest somewhere in the world. How much of this is due to snow, and how much is due to Bernanke's increasingly more genocidal policies (has anyone done a tally of how many people have died in various riots, protests and revolutions since the beginning of the year - perhaps it is time) is unknown and irrelevant. All that matters is to buy (sorry, BTFD no longer works as there just are no Ds anymore).
