I love those old maps of multi-ethnic old empires.
I could stare for ages.
lols how accurate that turned out
So glad we were so prepared
Just shows the gulf between "ability" and "competence".
Honestly, that shows just how bad leadership has been to fuck up so badly with good infrastructure to handle a pandemic
Another diverse old empire
Oh, historical maps are fun.
I like this one, which clearly gave up before it got to Britain, but it's still pretty impressive for the 12th century and gets some major cities in there (Hi HASTINKS and LONDR).
Amazing. And all names written upside down in Arabic but with Roman alphabet.
I want to read this book
There are plenty of them posted by that account. Most of them are a bit dated though.
Oh we're the TEAPOT in the CORNER?!
I saw one kind of like it about local stereotypes in Mexico, but I’m gonna look those up
Can't wait to see the flags for Slutty Queens and Gyms & Butt Sex in the next ASFM.
This is a more worrying set of maps showing the rapid extinction of the letter R in the UK
We need one for how many people pronounce “pussy” and “fussy” the same.
Also I like how in the 1950s no-one in Scotland, Wales or Ireland could speak.
I'm so confused by that map. I'm... not sure if I pronounce the R or not.
Is that a real thing? Sounds like a more German thing (like apple becoming apfel).
Question: do you say butter (butt=put) or butter like normal people?
Here’s the whole article I found these maps in
They should have a THIRD COLOUR for the South East where we say BU'-AH.
AH! This is basically the same thing. Pussy=put, fussy=butter. FABULOUS
How is the u in gunny pronounced?
I do that
Like “that scab has gone a bit pussy”
I like if I go on my Instagram recommended it's basically all maps and hot guys.
One of which that caught my eye was this:
ALSO is anyone here on Geoguessr and wants to be my friend? I have none. I've found it a really fun way to pass small portions of time during ALL THIS so I succumbed to a paid membership yesterday.
It looks a bit like Sporcle. Is it worth a try?
I haven’t visited Sporcle for ages. I used to spend hours there.
I grew tired of Sporcle. I basically completed it.
Geoguessr plumps you in the middle of anywhere in the world (provided it's on GoogleMaps) and you have to guess where you are. The paid membership has a few variants of the game and you play it an unlimited number of times, but you can also play one normal game a day for free. Give it a go!
Omg I just downloaded the app! It looks wonderfully addictive
Ooh it’s great fun.
Saw a load of signs in both German and Italian so narrowed down to Ticino (Switzerland) or Tyrol (Italy) but noticed the road name was SP99 which is Italian then just had to find a large town on the map.
Thinking like a true Geoguessr already! The amount of times I've been blindly following roads on map looking for something familiar.
I tried GeoGuessr today! Lost a few points because I didn’t realise you had to find where you started rather than where you are when you guess.
4/5 were pretty straightforward but ended up getting stuck on the Japan one at the end windy roads near a dam with no road signs
Add drag queens and that's me
I'm having a go at Geoguessr now. I've found a pub. Is it cheating if I google it?
Oh of course yes them too.
My Geoguessr is just an endless country road with no signs But I am determined to finish
