Note: I don't care if you can spot a nickel from across the street, there's no way you can read this. Click HERE to see the whole map in it's full-res glory and getcha learn on.

This is a map showing the origin/meaning of all countries' names. Honestly, I have no idea if it's accurate or not because I don't know anything about things like this.

Sure beats 'Some Planet's Butthole'! *ahem* Greenland.
