Here’s the town where your Big Map Curator the 59 King went to school; I spent six years at the University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri [gmap]. In six years, a person might find himself or herself with a couple degrees, or one really useful one — but t59K didn’t end up with either. Seems like a lot of people running a lot of hustles in higher-education.

Watch out, kids.

(Town looks pretty much the same. Doesn’t look like all that much has changed.)
