It's less that these countries are small and more that
1: our maps are ridiculously warped because it's hard to make a perfectly "correct" map without a globe (even this isn't correct; for example, Russia's bigger than it appears in the "corrected" version)
2: the oceans are fucking huge, especially the Pacific. There's is nowhere near as much dry land on Earth as people believe.


And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future.

It still blows my mind that this is a 1TB storage device.

It will probably cost $20 in four years.

Interesting. 

 

And if you wanted to illustrate how high passenger planes fly, you would have to saw a penny in half and lay it on the map.

Maybe that's how we'll build the space elevator.... using swarms.


What are you without the sum of your parts?

It's a phenomenon known as a fata morgana, which has also been the cause for sightings of "ghost ships" and "floating islands."

Wildlife photos: Squabbling mice top 'people's poll' award
 
8 hours ago
 
Anyone who's travelled on London Underground's network will know them - the little black mice that scurry along the platforms and under the rails.
 
Sam Rowley was so fascinated by these subterranean rodents, he spent a week down the tube trying to picture them.
 
And one night, he captured an image of two of them literally battling over a morsel of food dropped by a passenger.
 
That persistence to get the snap has won Sam the Wildlife Photographer of the Year LUMIX People's Choice award.
