    Thought this deserved a wider audience, although.some of the maps are too American-centric to be interesting.

      It seems similar to @TerribleMaps on Twitter.

      A decent blend of, knowledge, trivia, silliness and dad jokes.

      Who'd have thought America has the most guns in private ownership.

      Interesting that the average IQ map was Europe only, no doubt America is too low to show

      My favourite flag story is when we had overseas territories and they needed a new flag they would send in their design, we made them a flag and sent it back. When the Turks and Caicos islands in the Caribbean got their flag back they were surprised to see we had converted their pile of salt, a major income, into an igloo by putting a door in it! So many countries, so many flags who knew where they were!

      if you mean the one with how many countries we've "invaded", i think thats based on a very lose definition, probably only that military have been deployed there.

      I’m a little concerned that in the map of ‘Historic and Present Distribution of Lions around the World’ that it has a question mark where Italy is. Now I visit Italy twice a year and I’d rather like to know if one of these dangerous beasts is likely to jump out on me whilst licking away on my tiramisu Gelato.
      now my friends have gone,
      and my hair is grey,
      and I ache in the places that I used to play.

      As far as I am aware all the lions have been removed from the Colosseum in Rome but keep a look out just in case a stray is still there.
      I was recently in Sienna and Lucca and I did not see any.

      Your talking about the pasta cooks that get irritated when aldente is ordered and then they are asked to cook the pasta a bit more.
