If you think you can come here and act like this, when you don't know me at all, you're mistaken, and also, nobody will see this comment, because the post is already gone from FJ, only if people go to my profil or favorite, they will see it.
And if you scroll down, you'll find out that the post your just linked, is also a repost.

I've always thought that every country/continent makes their maps so that they are in the middle because it helps kids identify their home country/continent easier.
And then maps used internationally would be the elongated ones that display everything in full.

Disclaimer: I have never been to other countries/continents and this is based on what I perceive to be common sense.

No, pretty much every conventional map has Britain in the centre.
If you want to know why its a long and boring story about how the British were the first to accurately measure latitude and longitude, and something about the Royal Observatory in London.
It's also why time around the world is based on Britain (GMT stands for Greenwich Mean Time, Greenwich is a place in London where the Royal Observatory is.)

The worst part is, the map was probably made in China.

George Orwell wrote that nationalism was one of the worst enemies of peace. He defined nationalism as the feeling that your way of life, country, or ethnic group were superior to others. These types of feelings lead a group to attempt to impose their morality on any given situation. When those standards were not met, more often then not, war would result. Europeans and Americans are both guilty.

Skipping takes 1 second, moaning about reposts takes 30 or more. So, instead of moaning, and showing the world how much of a self-centred **** you are, kindly move on so those who haven't seen this image yet don't have to see your spam.

What does it matter? I didn't steal it from this guy with 20 thumbs, I found it elsewhere on the internet. And I can give original link, and that one, and the other guys, is probably a repost from a other post.
And there's 2 hous or less left of this post on the front page. Tbh you're a little too late, if you are butthurt over my thumbs.

The English maps look like they cut as little land as possible. But i guess that only matters if you think land is more important then ocean. **** you England! Love Aquaman...

For you who's never seen it; It's an old map used up until 1988 (when it was decided by the national geographic society that the standard world map we use today should be the "normal" one), although it wasn't very popular because... Well it cut Asia in half. The map we used today is split at the international date line (more info here [url deleted] ).

"europeans put themselves in the centre of most maps"

That's because it makes sense when you look at the time zones.

Battle of Britain - over. Threat of German invasion of Britain ended. This was before lend lease even started.

Before Lend Lease, US was making mad bank selling weapons to both sides. Thanks for that guys.
