Take a Look at the ‘Real’ World

Ever wondered which countries drink the most coffee? What the US would look like if it was on the moon? Where all the smart people live? How the average penis and breast sizes compare around the world?

Check out these maps. Each one offers a delightfully different way of looking at the world that will (correctly) alter your perception of the world.

It turns out that Africa is as big as China, the US (excluding Alaska), India and half of Europe all combined; the vast majority of the world would choose football (aka soccer) as its favourite sport; and the US, Myanmar and Liberia are the only countries in the world that still use the imperial system as standard.
