What was the last country to officially abolish slavery and in what year did this occur?

The country is a way out there answer that you probably won't guess.
Saw this on a video I watched recently - Mauritania some time in the 80s.

Not a great looking place...

That's the one. There wasn't even an actual punishment for it until 2007.
"Enjoyed this one," Gunpowder told the Burlington Observer. "But it's back to work tomorrow."

Love that Brit who makes these videos - he goes places I know I never will (and a lot of them that I would never want to visit). Mauritania looks like one of the worst places imaginable.

I was getting uncomfortable watching him. If you go to another country, you follow their etiquette rules. When everyone yells at you to stop filming, you stop. I've never seen his other videos, but from this he seems like an arrogant condescending fuck. I can't imagine openly mocking a poor country's facilities while I'm there. That bathroom reminded me a lot of a public pay toilet I used outside of Novgorod on a bus trip. As the English teacher in the high school I attended said, "you pay for the smell." I felt horrible for the gnarled old lady who had to sit in there collecting money.

i'm gussing justin tucker.

until conducting research for a ray lewis joke, i never knew lewis never married. some people in baltimore took a dim view of this fact after the sun published an article about lewis a couple years ago.
First of all, great article on Ray Lewis, no doubt among the greatest NFL linebackers of all time, if not the greatest. Let me make one major exception to your laudatory review. You all and Steve Bisciotti praise his role as the consummate family man and father. I take major exception to that categorization (“Ray Lewis and Baltimore: A creation myth 22 years in the making,” July 25).

I am the proud father of three lovely girls. My wife and I have been married for 39 years. One wife, three children. Ray Lewis has had six children by numerous women, none of whom is his wife.

Being labeled a “good father” is not just paying for your kids’ college educations. It’s about marrying their mother, and being there for all of their daily adolescent issues. Ray was not there for that because he would not commit to marriage.

The nuclear family is the root of a successful society. If Ray Lewis commits to that, and marries one of the numerous mothers of his six children, he will earn my respect

Give me the next five cities in this sequence. The sequence logic might be obvious, or it might not, I'll let it sit for a while.

1. Columbia, SC
2. Charleston, WV
3. Columbus, OH
4. Tallahassee, FL
5. Atlanta, GA
6. Lansing, MI
7. Frankfort, KY
8.
9.
10.
11.
12.

I am prepared to be quite wrong.

Is it cheating to look at a map? I'm 99% sure I figured it out, but will hold off.

This is close—only wrong as to the order.

That is correct.

I always get weirded out at how much farther east the northern places are. And though I am well aware of where the Mississippi River goes, I always want to put Illinois and Wisconsin on the other side of it.

Just so I'm clear it's state capitals sorted by degree of longitude from east to west, correct?

Correct. I liked that Columbus and Charleston and Columbia were all in a row, as if those 3 weren't confusing enough.
