Some maps show that green uninhabited area as the 52nd state.

Went to Africa in January, not 1 single person even knew the country that I visited even existed...And then most people didn't know that the entire continent isn't a big jungle, so when they saw a desert they thought I was in saudi arabia.

I think the map gives too much credit to the average mericans concept of the location and relative sizes of those other areas. :D

But I do have to say that they do know about African. Its where all those images of starving refuges come from. :(

Other than that the idea portrayed by this map is too true :( much as I hate to say it.

Well thats not surprising. Isn't Kansas that area the map makers created to fill in for projecting a round surface on a flat map? :D Or maybe thay was Wyoming?

Just kidding.

Yes and the French didn't help you become independant in the first place.
he he... I knew someone would be offended. Nobody can take a joke about where they live! BTW - perhaps they did help us become independent, but I wonder if that was because they just wanted to help us, or where there other reasons? (I already know the answer) At any rate, as long as we are discussing favors, I recall two occasions within the past century, where we have paid them back for their help.

Still waiting for the crude American jokes to start popping up here.

Suggestions:
1. to dismiss the geography teacher
2. to pass some days navigating in Google Earth
3. to use some long vacations to understand the size of the world

Particularly I believe that to 3 it is more interesting, but to arrange another geography teacher can prevent new maps...
