Note: Larger version HERE in case you want to know where the Galapagos Islands used to be. SPOILER: No clue.

This is the Pangea supercontinent imagined with current national borders. Was anybody else surprised to see that the US used to be neighbors with Canada and Mexico? Blows my mind. Of course the fact that people actually believe that all the continents used to fit together like a giant jigsaw puzzle blows my mind too. Like, hundreds of years from now that's going to sound as ridiculous as still believing the earth is round. It isn't round though, is it? "It's shaped like a turtle." Just any old turtle? "Michelangelo." Congratulations, that was a test and you passed.

Thanks to Brad C, who once got so angry at a tropical island that he kept kicking sand off the beach into the water until the whole thing disappeared.
