This is a great way to visualize global migration patterns.  Where are people migrating to Brazil coming from?  What countries are Brazilians migrating to?  Here are the answers to these types of questions for every country.

One part of the largest human migration event on the planet that takes place during Chinese New Year is for millions of Chinese to go "home" for the holiday to see their families.  For young women, the parents are hopeful that their daughters have found a potential husband.  For those who don't have that special someone yet, they can rent a fake boyfriend to take with them to meet the folks.
