I think I’ve mentioned before that I really like maps. Every once in a while I’ll see a link to a site about maps or remember to visit Strange Maps. Yesterday I ran across the “map” below. I spent a long time looking at it that I could have spent on more-or-less productive things. Click on the map for a larger version, but note that most newish browsers will reduce the size of the image to a single screen. You’ll have co click on that (apparently) smaller image to really see it bigger (I don’t know. It’s complicated).

Yeah, it’s really long, right? If you’re wondering what to buy me for Christmas, I think you can still buy these maps. However, please coordinate your efforts, as I would hate to end up with, say, two of them.

    You do realize this map isn’t y2k compliant, right?

    That map is really interesting. I like it a lot. But not $900 worth of like. The people who have it listed for $900 are just selling the map, right? Not the map and a big screen TV?

    Amazon says it’s 9 point font, Lloyd. Your old eyes can’t read that.

    I got one at a home school convention for $30 and it is illustrated even better than the one you have pictured. It is called Adam’s Synchronological Chart or Map of History and it is available at Amazon for the bargain price of 26.39! It starts with creation (Genesis) and ends with the Geneva council in 1872. It is worth every penny!!!

    So I suppose you don’t have a GPS, huh?

    (That is a very cool map indeed! And I really like that site you ‘ran across’. I can’t wait to look at that some more.)

    How much vertical space do you need for that thing?
