My husband was telling me earlier about an article he read in Scientific American about Mercator projections causing inaccuracies in many printed maps. China, USA, India, Japan and a good chunk of Europe will fit inside Africa’s entire “bootprint.”
And my mind instantly went to imagining a dirty Playboy style cartoon. Man and woman naked in bedroom full of maps, and she’s eyeballing his erect “member” with disdain. He says, “Don’t worry, baby – it’s just an inaccurate Mercator projection.”
Now if only I had an artist willing to make this a reality! Do I need to resurrect Shel Silverstein?
