I love this map. Apologies for the not-very-good photo; it's in an awkward position to photograph. Every time I look at this it shakes me up a little.

(also apologies for the borked html on yesterday's entry; it previewed perfectly so I've no idea what went wrong and can't work out how to fix it!)

My Australian colleague has a wall map that while not the same as yours centres on the Australian neck of the woods rather than the United States/Western Europe and I find it hysterical how many people it freaks out.

The world is round, people, the world is round. :D

Not only is it round but it hangs in space, too. "Up" and "down" on the map are arbitrary points designed to give our poor brains a fixed point of reference. (tried telling that to son's girlfriend, who insists the map is just wrong!)
