North and South America turned sideways... is a duck

now the entire earth except for antarctis looks like a flying duck

OP waited one hour to repost... At least write x-post /sub/mildlyinteresting in the title

It's America goddammit! Speak duck!

As a fellow map-maker, yes this projection is horrible.

But the Dymaxion is a very good duck in flight(were you kidding or am I not getting the sarcasm?)

confused as to why the labels are upside down when viewing the map in a proper manner

I see a raptor.

I don't like the Mercator for obvious reasons, but I like cardinal directions, so I don't like the Dymaxion projection either.

Go globes?

Also, you like Isaac Asimov, XML, and shoes with toes. You think the Segway got a bad rap. You own 3D goggles, which you use to view rotating models of better 3D goggles. You type in Dvorak.

what about now?

South-up map orientation.
