Greetings fellow north american

"America" refers to the United States. You can't make the argument that Canadians are Americans because they aren't, they're North Americans.

I know it sounds weird but you understand what I'm saying, right?
#333 to #269 - anon (03/21/2013) [-]
there are two america's south america and north america
that's why it's 'the united states of america'
Canada is also in america.
America doesn't mean united states

Most of our maps tend to be like this. Which on the surface is really stupid, but when you think about it, wouldn't it make sense to make your nation the primary geographic region for ease of use? Also, WE'RE not the ones who are so arrogant as to call the part of the Eurasian continent we live on, a separate continent. I mean come on, look at Europe. LOOK AT IT! How the **** is that a continent? Look to your own idiocies before attempting to construct idiocies in others.

Never heard that before, but it might also be because centering the earth on any other position will leave you staring at a whole lot of the Pacific and end up cutting some poor continent in half.
#138 to #7 - rmoran (03/21/2013) [-]
Because where you make the map is always the unchanging center.

Oh when Americans make a map it's about them needing to be the center of attention but when England makes a map it's about the location of where the map is made that puts that location in the center of the map.
#387 to #266 - anon (03/21/2013) [-]
Actualy, it's because during the late middle ages/renesance, britain, france, spain and portugal was litteraly the center of the world, both when it comes to economy and military. Not to mention they were the primary causes an accurate world map could be drawn. Most modern maps drawn in europe place britain in the center both as an honorary nod to them, and because it's convenient since no continents are sliced in half.
#281 to #266 - anon (03/21/2013) [-]
Cept their maps of the world were the first. Not to mention it doesn't cut any continent in half. It's just a convention.
User avatar #469 to #7 - generaljackass (03/21/2013) [-]
Also why the prime meridian is in Greenwich. Crafty Brits making themselves the center of attention.
User avatar #432 to #7 - lordmoldywart (03/21/2013) [-]
Good reason too, GMT is the central time on Earth, makes sense to put it in the middle
#435 to #432 - delivering (03/21/2013) [-]
Actually, your logic is backwards, since the reason why Greenich became the central time zone is the same as the reason it's at the center of maps - Brittain ruling the world during colonial times.
User avatar #437 to #435 - lordmoldywart (03/21/2013) [-]
Your spelling's pretty backwards too
#442 to #437 - delivering (03/21/2013) [-]
That does not invalidate my point. It also doesn't make you any less wrong.
#462 to #442 - anon (03/21/2013) [-]
your point was moot to begin with. Regardless of how GMT came about, GMT 0 is still London, so it still makes sense to put it in the centre.
#273 to #7 - usernameerror (03/21/2013) [-]
The British actually made the first maps that had accurate longitude measurements with them and the prime meridian runs through Greenwich, England where the royal observatory is. They had a contest to see who could come up with a device to accurately measure longitudes and in order to have a benchmark, the royal observatory was to be the prime meridian. That's what my professor told me so take it for what it's worth.

I always thought maps looked like that because GMT, all the countries that are -GMT are on the left and all the countries that are +GMT, so it makes sense that England is in the middle.

also you know that map is upside down, if you can read Arabic you will find that all the words are upside down since the early Muslim geographers viewed the world opposite to how we see it today, and the weird thing is is that they weren't exactly wrong

Its not technically wrong, North is 'up' and south is 'down just because that's what we're all used to seeing. On a solar system scale of things either direction is fine. I knew a Geography teacher who had one of these purely to make that point.

This is now really counter intuitive. Here south is upwards and east is to the left. And Australians being ascendants of the British Empire, they would have been used to English maps.

All this being said: the first maps, before sailors started using the North Star and compasses for navigation, most maps had east on top of the map(probably because of the sun rising in the east.)

Clearly.

You really are full of yourself. By claiming that the Europeans recreated something that already existed does not mean you are right. In fact that means you are wrong because the devise was already made by the Babylonians THEN the Europeans adopted it.

Good Day.

the bablyonians made a poorer and more basic map completely different from modern maps . eruopean maps are an invention no different then a ipod.
#195 to #189 - nicolbolas (03/21/2013) [-]
The ipod is just an mp3 player with a name.  Apple does not claim to have invented the mp3 player, they just produced the ipod to compete.     
   
The European map is simply an improvement and the idea was probably obtained through trading

they do claim that they invented the Ipod, furthermore the patent office has declared and creation that vastly changes or improves a previously existing invention is in it self a new invention,ergo european maps are an invention in their own right, ergo your a massive fagget. egro I was right .

Awe is it past someone's bed time
Poor word choice does make a statement wrong, you did not oversimplify your original statement, you just said it wrong no more no less, do not try to claim you are in the right. Claim responsibility for your actions and quit trying to be elusive by saying people should be able to understand a complicated meaning.

If one is meant to think further into something such as my definition of invention, you would have been able to see that the example you followed up with would have fallen into that category because it merely added features, it did not change what a map did.
User avatar #268 to #264 - timmywankenobi (03/21/2013) [-]
I suppose not everyone would share the US patent offices definition of invention as I do but that is your limitation not mine, and arguing semantics is pointless and tiresome.
User avatar #274 to #268 - nicolbolas (03/21/2013) [-]
You fail to understand why that definition is in place. If the patent office did not allow variation in products, capitalism could not thrive in the US. This definition has a purpose and loses the meaning that it wishes to portray. With this several types of cars can exist. If they adopted a more philosophical definition like mine, all car variations would still simply be cars and therefore who ever came up with it first reaps the benefits.
User avatar #277 to #274 - timmywankenobi (03/21/2013) [-]
I understand perfectly the problem here is our definitions differ and that caused the issue at hand so really we are both right and wrong, and this battle of semantics could go on forever .
User avatar #204 to #197 - nicolbolas (03/21/2013) [-]
First of all I said leave.

Second running to find a definition to benefit your cause proves nothing because this definition was made to encompass a broad spectrum of things so that capitalism can thrive.

Third A thing that is designed for a particular task is part of the rest of the items that are designed to do the same thing. All mp3 players are mp3 players, all maps are maps. No new task was accomplished so no new thing was invented. (you cannot say the new task is the location because the task is a record of geographical information)

Continue to argue, our peers already decided who was wrong and who was right before I even got involved, You kept ranting like an ass and I don't even know how you got popular here.
User avatar #214 to #204 - timmywankenobi (03/21/2013) [-]
european maps did complete a new task they tell elevation and distance and encompass a greater area in more detail . and you second assumption is just as wrong as your first you seem to believe the amount of thumbs= how right you are,there is no such correlation. unlike you I don't require some faggets approval to determin weather I am correct or not,I use fact and common sense something many here are clearly lacking.
User avatar #250 to #214 - nicolbolas (03/21/2013) [-]
(in response to #238)
First of all, learn to spell and use Your/You're correctly. It's one thing to not have excellent English skills but trying to claim you are smart and saying your instead of you're does not help.

Next if you word something wrong, you have to accept that you are wrong. If you say something incorrectly that is on you, we cannot tell for sure what you are thinking so we have to use the words you put on the screen.

Lastly, constantly trying to prove you are right does not make you any more or less wrong than you were before. Everyone knows what you said and you handled the situation incorrectly. Your carelessness caused you to look like a complete dumb-ass and I don't see how anyone can respect someone so full of them-self.

User avatar #260 to #250 - timmywankenobi (03/21/2013) [-]
it is late at night and I am tired forgive my spelling errors, but a typo or poor choice of a single word does not make your whole statement wrong. you are correct I am wasting my time here I over simplified my original statement thinking there were some semi intelligent people here that would understand and a complicated explanation would not be required; I was mistaken.

User avatar #225 to #214 - nicolbolas (03/21/2013) [-]
I never used thumbs as a way of approval, I used them to show that our peers rejected YOUR views and YOUR vision. You completely failed to think beyond what was displayed in front of you or else you would see the first part of your argument is wrong.

I did use facts gained in my education and common sense would tell YOU to revisit your argument to see how you were wrong. Do not tell someone to use something if you first do not use them.
User avatar #238 to #225 - timmywankenobi (03/21/2013) [-]
ha what people on this site feel about my statements is irrelevant I know I am right, I may have worded my first statement poorly but that doesn't make it wrong . if you could read you would see I reiterated my point repeatedly in different ways but your all so dumb I had to spell it out in small words for you to grasp it , as I clearly overestimated the deniziens of fj's intelligence. Do not tell some they are wrong without reading what the wrote !


here it is again for your benefit :
"okay maybe if I use very simple small words so as no to confuse you . "Europeans put themselves in the middle of most maps"-nortledrones
yes they probably did this because they created/made/("invented"-admittedly not the best descriptor) all the modern maps we commonly use and thus viewed them self as the center of the world. "

Maybe because they put GMT in the middle of the map and don't cut any continent in half.

Retard alert. GMT was decided to be the England, since they made England the center of the world
User avatar #483 to #468 - defensive (03/21/2013) [-]
Ah no. GMT was the time that was set at a busy shipping port and it was very common for people to set their watches to that time, so it became the +0. Basically they thought of a system the rest of the world liked and so uses while americans like you still complain cause it's not a 'MURICAN time system.
