Arbitrary

RANDOM NETWORKS, which resemble the U.S. highway system (simplified in left map), consist of nodes with randomly placed connections. In such systems, a plot of the distribution of node linkages will follow a bell-shaped curve (left graph), with most nodes having approximately the same number of links. - a paper by Icosystem employees

Well, that's hilarious. Graph theory proves that our politicians are incompetent/malfeasant. Actually, I don't think it proves anything of the kind, although I stand by the conclusion.

Just thought I'd share the fact that our highway system is literally, mathematically proven to be, random.
