    Note: Larger, actually legible version HERE. This is the map of the internet cartographered by DeviantARTist JaySimons. I'm sure there's something to learn by looking at it, I just didn't pick up on any of it. Probably because I started daydreaming about how cool it would be... / Continue →

    Note: Larger, more legible version HERE. This is a US map depicting the 124 states that could have been if every time a piece of a state tried to break away from the rest it had been successful. When I conquer and rule the country? One big state: GW-LAND. Yeah, and we're ju... / Continue →

    This is 'Topography of Tears', a series of microscopic photographs of human tears taken by Rose-Lynn Fisher. It's weird how most of them look like little maps of Middle Earth. I can almost imagine Frodo and the rest of his hairy little friends bounding down a grassy knoll, re... / Continue →

    This is a series of posters created by artist Andrew DeGraff that feature the Indiana Jones and Star Wars trilogies retold as maps of characters' movements. You might have noticed how he didn't include the latest Indiana Jones or any of the Star Wars prequels. That's because ... / Continue →

    Some peen-loving jokester (God, aren't we all?) in Victoria, Australia managed to draw a really crappy looking wiener on one of the camera lenses of a Google Street View car. As far as wieners go, it's not a very good one. On a scale from 1 to 10 it's like a 2 (is that...supp... / Continue →

    Seen here proving he has zero clue what the world actually looks like, artist Samuel Granados creates 3-D maps out of LEGO blocks that show migration data. Oh c'mon -- BIRDS CAN'T READ LEGO! His project is very funny: a 3D cartogram about emigration and inmigration between ... / Continue →

    Note: Don't even try reading that, it's only gonna make you squirt. I mean squint. Or do I? I don't even know anymore. Click HERE to see the high-res version. Sorry for the short, quick posts today folks, but by the time you read this I'll be halfway to a top-secret locati... / Continue →

    Some Google Streetviewer appears to have left a pair of pliers on top of his camera while out mapping. Oops! Hey it's okay, mapper, just be thankful it wasn't a dildo. God I wish it'd been a dildo. Google Maps Thanks to Fan_Thomas, who once left a chainsaw on the roof of h... / Continue →

    PleaseRobMe.com is a website that lists people who have recently left their homes and announced their location on Twitter. So you can go rob them. Or go spread rose petals all over their porch if you're not into the whole robbery thing. The website was created to make an imp... / Continue →

    I can't believe it took this long. And, who knows, maybe it's happened before. I mean, birds shit on my car all the time. Cats too. And, at least twice this year, a homeless man. Well, from a purely technical standpoint, that was actually IN the car. And speaking of which... / Continue →

    Honestly, I bet the old lady ran right into the side of the thing (old ladies are notoriously bad bike riders. *ahem* Grandma -- I saw you hit that bus shelter!). There's a before shot after the jump, but unfortunately the above image has since been removed from Google Maps. ... / Continue →

    This is one in a series of holiday Verizon ads bashing AT&T's 3G coverage. I thought they were tacky, particularly since it's not even Thanksgiving yet. ONE HOLIDAY AT A TIME, FOLKS, GEEZ. Where were the Pilgrim and Indian themed ads? Oh, right -- you ran them in July. I o... / Continue →

    This is a screenshot from the National Air Traffic Controllers Association (an organization that knows how to party) real-time map of flights over North America. Except it's not actually real-time, it's delayed 5 minutes. Of course, judging from the 2005 copyright in the lowe... / Continue →

    This is a graphic representation of all the McDonalds restaurants in the United States. As you might be able to tell, there are a lot of them. Some might even say a McMillion. But they'd be wrong, because there's only 13,000. This map is the brainchild of Stephen Von Worley,... / Continue →

    This is a recording of a wicked video projection show perfectly mapped to the front of a mansion in England. You've just got to see it to believe it. It's sort of long, but I recommend watching at least the first minute and then skipping around (there's even some Pac-Man acti... / Continue →

    I'm not even sure what I'm looking at. It looks like a snake chasing a giant squid. But according to some security guard who was busy surfing Google Earth instead of patrolling his beat, it's the Loch Ness Monster (love you, Nessie). Jason Cooke told The Sun he spotted "Ne... / Continue →
