The “children are in trouble”…no longer
So, I’m probably the last person on the net to link to this unforgettable performance. As Miss Teen South Carolina put so famously, “The children of the US America are in deep trouble. Because some people out there don’t have maps. Such as South Africa.” Watch the video again, if you are so moved:
But my real point is to link you to the solution: MapsForUs.org. You can bone up on New York City with this beautiful panaromic map. And they’ve got lots of fun items, like map of Solaris in Ultima III and this map of this map of Zork I. Brings you back, no?
But the real winner is this short video from the West Wing where they explain why everything you know about geography is actually wrong. Enjoy!
