The 2019 population USA was
328,200,000

The 2018 population of China was
1,427,647,786

1 to 4.35 ratio staggering

Your thoughts?

How about these numbers..... The USA has 4% of the worlds population but has 25% of the worlds Covid-19 cases and it all started in China which has 4.35 x the population ?

“Inconceivable !”

All of China is ONLY 2% larger in land size than USA. But USA includes Alaska that has a very small population density.

We would not do well in a war of attrition. China will be the next Superpower if we like it or not.

China is well over 3,000 years old with China being one of the 4 ancient civilizations (the others being Mesopotamia, Egypt, and the Indus valley). And what is the USA, barely 250 years old? America hasn't even reached puberty yet (and might not ever) never mind the ancient and wise people the Chinese are. America judges China based solely on it's last 100 years of history, barely a blip on the real history of China. So it's no wonder that China has almost 5 times the population of the USA. And that large population brings it's own unique problems.

When the two collide ....

I heard they want to change the name of the Tijuana Donkey Ball Team ? An unnamed political party says it puts them in a bad light🤡

The Sahara Desert is bigger than mainland USA, so Africa is REALLY big

On maps the U.K. is usually shown as about the size of France and Spain.

In reality France is 2.5 times the size of UK and Spain twice the size.
England is so teeny that my neighbour celebrates the longest day of the year by cycling across the country from sea to sea in a day :)

I guess it pays to be the one who decided how all maps would be drawn.

"Anybody here get their free seeds yet ? "

it would go in a ziploc with a label "touch at your own risk" and into the trash. and then wipe down anything around with alcohol. after that anthrax snafu way back when, if its something that looks suspicious, I didnt miss it, so its to the trash.

Posting seeds and other bits of junk is usually just a way to beat the algorithms on Amazon, Ali Baba etc.

Companies buy the cheapest possible rubbish from themselves but with an address in the target market. They are then boosted in sales ranking and can also write glowing reviews, usually for a much higher value item.

Some are start-ups playing the system, some rogues, some complete criminals.

It also works for laundering money - pay for jewellery from yourself but post out cheap seats to a foreign address, makes it harder to trace who is doing what and where money originated.

Back in the days when I did govt. work I was on a regular task force with customs intel. and others. There were similar things going on and that was a long time ago - just not as much as now.

You have an evil mind bb. I would never have thought this point of view. You would be a good kingpin. A mix of intellect and evil haha

Mercator Projection.
(But Mr. Mercator was Flemish.)

Indeed.
But the U.K. is even bigger on most maps than Mercator projection (On maps, not charts).
And usually right in the middle, because brits set where the centre of the world, dates, and time was (Greenwich Meridian, London).

Mass printing coincided with Britain’s geopolitical dominance so their image, exaggerating Britain became the popular, accepted one. New Zealand on the other hand sometimes gets left off or moved because they are in an awkward place :)

Mercator also makes it look like London to New York flights go straight over the Atlantic. An author that consulted me for a book took a lot of convincing that it is standard practice to divert to Iceland if something goes wrong because maps make it look like a longer trip. I had to stretch string on a kids globe - he’s a very clever guy but the standard map is entrenched.

For land masses, I quite like Buckminster Fuller’s projection:

Could be worse, you could have to deal with US classroom maps.

Alaska is small and Hawaii is big.
They're both somewhere off the west coast of Mexico, which now has a vast bay where Baja California, Sinaloa, Durango, and the southern halves of Sonora and Chihuahua once were.
