speaking of, everyone enjoy this extremely helpful and beautiful map of europe!
@melissasage why. what
@melissasage it hurts to look at it
@melissasage I love this map more than life itself
@DeltaFlood big same. the afternoon you and i spent just going through every piece of this was incredible
@melissasage Update: I put this map up by my desk at work and apparently a European visitor came to look at our labs while I was away and this map "Almost broke him"
@DeltaFlood it fucking rules
@melissasage I know a map is bad when I can pick out errors with my American geography skills
@melissasage aw man that's too much europe. :< I can't fit that in my cupboard
@melissasage the more I look at it the worse it gets, oh my god
@melissasage That is so cursed that I keep looking at the parts that don't appear to be wrong, wondering what I've missed. Where's it from?
@eldang i actually don't know the source- it's been basically passed to me third-or-fourth hand. if i ever find it, I'll credit it in the post
@melissasage I feel deep and profound shame at how long it took me to notice
My first inkling was, "Wait, isn't Reykjavík on the western coast of Icel-- oh no"
@melissasage *looks around this map for a few minutes then just gives you this... this look.*
I can't even.
@melissasage Well, at least they recognize the existence of Catalonia.
@Kyresti though in fairness, it's catalonia a few degrees to the left, not catalonia
@melissasage I like "bringmeham"
@melissasage they got Denmark pretty much right. Or at least, that's what it'll look like in 80 years.
@melissasage okay i had to look for a good minute
@melissasage an effort was made 😂
@melissasage This makes me physically ill.
@melissasage despite all that's wrong with it, I love that tiny Mousehole in Cornwall is listed, and correctly.
@GwenfarsGarden the best part of it is that *just enough* is right to make the wrong stuff more aggressively bad
@GwenfarsGarden like the fact that afaict the biggest overt geographical joke is the fact that Iceland is upside-down
@melissasage close tie with legoland in Denmark : D
Who did this map? 😂 The position of cities 🤣
@melissasage Lisbon in Spain, London norther than Oxford, Amsterdam in the mainlands 😂 Slovakia, completely misplaced, possibly Norway too. Russia who let part of its to other countries. 🤣 Andorra and Luxembourg taking entire regions 😂
Thanks for sharing! 😀
@melissasage Australia instead of Austria 🤣🤣🤣
@MartinShadok i would just like to point out my personal favorite, Belfast and Belslow
@melissasage I like how they thought “Wait Bratislava is very near the south west border of Slovakia. Now, where is Slovakia again? I know! It separated from the Czech Republic so it must be… at the place of the Czech Republic?” 😂 Like they got the position of the country wrong, the position of the city wrong, but they got the position of the city within the country right.
Was this from a history book? 😧
@MartinShadok no no no this is a joke map
@MartinShadok i know american geographical education is wretched but it's not this wretched
@melissasage I've already seen silly mistakes in old history books, but to this level, that would have been very worrying. Thanks for sharing 😊
(Legoland, Duplo, and Belslow should have helped me noticing that it was all on purpose 😅)
@melissasage The Magyarország looks like “Hungary” in Hungarian, if I'm not mistaken. This is very good too 😁
I also like the Goscinny joke a lot! Let's put a Uderzo near Saint-Malo and it will be complete! 😀
@melissasage nynorsk and bokmål as towns in "finland" are very good
@melissasage I do not like looking at this map
@CornishRepublicanArmy smh fake leftist doesn't support catalonian independence (in basque country)
@melissasage and a proud day for Macedonian nationalists everywhere
@CornishRepublicanArmy a great day for Carthaginians, too
@melissasage to be fair, there IS a part of Tunis which is still called 'Carthage'
@CornishRepublicanArmy it's a suburb isn't it? smh gentrification of the proud carthaginians
@CornishRepublicanArmy explain Casu Marzu, Sicily, and the Tyrion Sea, tho
@melissasage SOUTH IRELAND
@interneteh belfast and belslow
@melissasage and Belcurve!
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
