Maps are good
I like maps
i was thinking ust last night how theres practically a right angle in the lines at finchley road, and trying to feel the turn. but i didnt.
is a very manly thing. I'm very good at it
Atlases are the best books to have at the back of the toilet
with thigns like:
10 longest rivers
10 highest mountains
10 highest population densitys
it would be no atlas
i'd like to join the cries of maps being great.
if you love maps you should try orienteering
*abandon geeky orienteering reply*
Street and road maps are good
Maps of hills and things are not. The hills don't have concentric lines around them to denote height.
Aren't contours good?
I have never found one on the ground, unlike streets and roads, which do exist
have the name written in big letters across them.
What strange reasoning you have.
I laughed ay my friend when he fell over.
reading maps sucks and causes arguments.
looking at maps and seeing which countries border bolivia rules
ever been to the shop in Covent Garden that ONLY sells maps and books of maps and books about maps? it's ACE. the floor in the basement is an OS map of greater london!
it's a bookshop. i think it's called stanfords or something, it's near covent garden tube.
also, the one time i went in there they were giving out free wine!
What's unusal about map shops? That's quite normal.
where a bookshop seems to be a bit unusual. thus a bookshop that focuses entirely on maps = mindblowing.
Maps as well.
we have that on the wall somewhere round here.
I like the map of the world that shows the REAL shape of the continents, not the shapes they are on most maps. Everything looks stretchified
with everything stretchified
which i was breifly subsribed too whilst trying to be an intellectual and concerned citizen of the world. I gave up being trying to be intellectual cos like whatever.
There is a proper name for this map, but i forget what it is.
that's the important thing
I'm glad it's not just me that finds them fascinating.
