Check out this craziness-
I found it at this blog.
This photo, as noted by the blog, uses 10 million people, or under 2% of FB's total customer base. However, it seems to do enough to re-affirm several stereotypes and observations I've had about the world. In the world according to this picture:
South Korea is an island. Makes sense to me. If it were a peninsula like the locals say, than I could take a bus or train to China. I can't. Of course, this doesn't matter because outside of Hong Kong and Shanghai...
China doesn't exist. That's a lot of missing tea. It's also interesting that...
Russia, nyet, the entire Soviet Union doesn't exist. Maybe Reagan's plan to outlaw them actually worked.
Other interesting notes that easily jibe with my world view:
The United States, Europe, and Southeast Asia are clearly the shining lights of civilization on this planet. Latin America, India, Eastern Australia, and New Zealand appear to be the only other inhabitable lands.
Socially, Korea lags far behind developing places like Indonesia, Turkey, and the Philippines. Yo, I don't make the data, I only examine it. Then again, I've never heard of a Turk or a Filipino fearing a fan. Of course, this is all internet based, so Cy-World (and the rest of the silly pop-up based flash graphics Internet Explorer 97 universe of the Korean internet) could be at fault.
Africa and the Middle East - meh, that's a another blog's job.
And, of course, my personal favorite:
Canada really is the Horizontal Chile. I've said it for years.
