    A certain amount of interwar Czechoslovakia was former Russian territory (Carpathia), as well as the issue with its northern border having taken a chunk of Poland in this map.

    I'm glad you Czeched before using that map. It needs some polishing up. The mapmaker must have been rushin'.

    It was not formerly Russian. Hell, Russian Poland was basically what the Austrians and Prussians have them after the Napoleonic Wars. Trans-Carpathian Ruthenia had nothing to do with Russia territorial up until WWII, even if they did call themselves Rusyn and want to join the them,

    Looks like a giant blue lobster claw is coming out of the Black Sea.

    They made North Macedonia look oddly testicular.
    Looks like Europe farted and North America is slowly taking a step back lest he smell the fumes.

    Seems they're using the old ROC's claimed borders for China.

    Looks like the "Is Europe a continent?" debate has been settled for good.
    Well, anthropomorphized Brazil's sure enjoying slurping up them spaghetti noodles.

    Judging from how the Arctic Circle line jumps at Iceland and the White Sea (and if you dare to look closer it also has fits in Greenland and Siberia) the segments of this globe were glued together rather sloppily.

    Although to be fair a sloppy assembly wasn't what made this globe horribly bad.

    Personal "favourite": The French-Austrian border.

    Luckily I'm old enough for booze, so I'll now be drinking until I've forgotten that.

    Those land bridges might be excusable (they didn't want to attach those islands separately to the wall) but then you notice Alaska and Central America (digging the Panama Canal must have been quite the task there)

    Went bankrupt from lawsuits after a plane headed to Guangzhou ended up landing in ISIS-held territory in eastern Syria. Pilots blamed it on some sort of faulty maps hindering navigation or something.

    Ahhh, everyone of a certain age remembers the day East Prussia sank into the sea.
     
  18. FriendlyGhost Haunting history for 45+ yrs

    Though it didn't make the news in the Netherlands, due to that sinking at the same time... apart from Texel and a couple of bits of Zeeland, apparently.

    Complete with Israel and additionally an Iran on the Tigris (And Finland with post continuation war borders, no Arctic coast)

    Not to mention that the countries are visibly labeled in German (admittedly it claims that it's a German map) but they made quite some errors with that as well.
    Not only the the lack of the Umlaute, whoever typed those labels wasn't very accurate when typing the names (Litaueh, Letyland, Griecheniand and Alberien have obviously missed to hit the right key, not sure what is was with Tunio; oh and I just noticed Frannreich)
