    Hah, yes, when I stumbled across that map, with a first quick glance I mentally filed it as just a badly drawn interwar Poland map. Only when I noticed that Hainan-shaped enclave in Romania I got suspicious and then traced those borders more consciously and finally recognized that shape.

    Anyways, back on topic. The following map was actually meant to be educational, which in turn just increases the horrible wrongness:

    Some crude calculation leads to an average length of the inhabitants of 5,5 cm.

    I made a very stupid miscalculation:confounded:. It must be 30 cm. So between Liliput and Hobitton.

    So when Eric Idle sings "they only come up to your knees" he meant that map, I see...

    Speaking of maps where someone obviously just painted over a modern map:

    Although I guess I'll cut him some slack. Given the turkish layover labels that hapless map maker might have had the map of my post #1461 as source materiel.

    I'm particularly fascinated by the fact that Minsk and Kiev are the two Russian Cities shown. That feels like including the United States and having Pittsburgh and Atlanta being the two cities to show.

    It broke loose during the spring floods and managed to get stuck at the Tatra Mountains when the waters finally receded. And given the map that is not the weirdest thing that happened there.
