A funny thing happened on the way to the forums… That is, I was at the main WordPress.com page, and about to click over to the support forums, when I saw among the list of hot blogs of today: strange maps. It is as interesting, strange, and cartographic as I hoped.
For example, there’s a map of the most generic country ever.
The country is bounded in the south by an ocean called ‘Ocean’, which closer to land is labelled ‘Gulf’, ‘Sea’, ‘Channel’ and ‘Bay’. Several islands are named ‘Island’, except where they occur in a group, in which case they’re called ‘Group of Islands or Archipelago’.
