Early Morning Geography Classes in #s-l
<OneLoveOnePurvis> *Just drink it in*
* Sakana stares at Europe on that map
<Edward_von_Stein> Ah, yes, Sakana, don’t you remember walking hours through the permafrost of the tundra to get to summer classes?
<Sakana> Yeah, had to strangle a few wolves with my own hands to keep warm
<OneLoveOnePurvis> *The island nation of France*
<Sakana> Also I remember summer camp in the Gulag
<OneLoveOnePurvis> *The windswept Steppes of Greece*
<Sakana> Purv: We all know conquering the British Isles was always France’s wet dream
<Sakana> And the barren wasteland of “There was once a country called Italy here now there is nothing”
<OneLoveOnePurvis> *Alas, we were too ambitious when it came to widening the Panama canal*
<Edward_von_Stein> …also how’d they fuck up South Africa and put it that far north? The location is the name, for fuck’s sake!
<Sakana> ALso Belgium got so sick of being marched through that it just moved across the sea
<Edward_von_Stein> The many heavy metal bands of Belgium.
<Sakana> The peninsula where Denmark once was is completely obliterated
<Edward_von_Stein> This is clearly a map of the World of Tomorrow.
<OneLoveOnePurvis> *We can see where the rising seas have revealed more of Greenland*
<Edward_von_Stein> Wonder who Denmark pissed off to get that many nukes dropped on them.
<Sakana> Meanwhile NotSpain docked with the African continent, making sure that no longer did anyone has to drown when trying to get there
<OneLoveOnePurvis> *Perhaps that’s what happened to Central America?*
<Edward_von_Stein> And Korea and Japan are kissing and making up there.
<Sakana> And then there is Vietnam, which just doesn’t exist at all anymore.
<OneLoveOnePurvis> *Texas is correctly labeled as part of Mexico*
<Edward_von_Stein> Thailand managed to jump ship though, and joined with the island nations, Fisch.
<Edward_von_Stein> Purvis: Yo quiero taco bell.
<Sakana> While Iran still exists in this world, the same cannot be said for Syria and Iraq
<OneLoveOnePurvis> *The US has taken Canada’s southern provinces in retaliation*
<OneLoveOnePurvis> *44’40” or bust, motherfuckers*
<OneLoveOnePurvis> *Perhaps this is to help find a home for the refugees of the now-vanished Caribbean?*
<Edward_von_Stein> You know, I just realized I apparently have been Spanish or Portuguese all my life.
<OneLoveOnePurvis> *What’s interesting is a lot of the relative positions seem to be mostly okay*
<OneLoveOnePurvis> *With some hilarious exceptions*
<Edward_von_Stein> Nah, it’s a complete clusterfuck.
<Sakana> Czech being one of the most notable, which skipped a few hundred miles to the west in relation to everyone else
<OneLoveOnePurvis> *Such as the UAE just kickin’ it in the middle of Siberia*
<Sakana> Probably trying to hide behind France’s back when evil Putin comes marching
<Edward_von_Stein> Purtvis: Nah, that’s the dot attached to the name. It points roughly to the Mesopotamian area.
<Sakana> The line leading there is horribly thin though
<OneLoveOnePurvis> *Oh, I couldn’t see it*
Chefchaouen, a small town in northern Morocco, has a rich history, beautiful natural surroundings and wonderful architecture, but what it’s most famous for are the striking and vivid blue walls of many of the buildings in its “old town” sector, or medina.
The maze-like medina sector, like those of most of the other towns in the area, features white-washed buildings with a fusion of Spanish and Moorish architecture. The brilliantly blue walls, however, seem to be unique to Chefchaouen. They are said to have been introduced to the town by Jewish refugees in 1930, who considered blue to symbolize the sky and heaven. The color caught on, and now many also believe that the blue walls serve to repel mosquitoes as well (mosquitoes dislike clear and moving water).
Whatever the reason, the town’s blue walls attract visitors who love to wander the town’s narrow streets and snap some beautiful photos.
Nature; the most beautiful and serene is often the most ruthless and destructive
Go home, Thor. You’re drunk.
