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
Only with the (arguably flawed) Mercator projection though... In the Dymaxion (my favorite) it definitely doesn't look like a duck:
Its the ducks speech bubble.
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.
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.
