Don't worry, we took care of that.
There is, of course, a difference between having a laugh with someone, and having a laugh at their expense

Put the paradox back in the box. Those things are dangerous.

But if I put it back in the box, I won't have enough space for my video games!
Who are you again and why in the world would you expect anything resembling rationality or civility in youtube comments?

You know, I'm REALLY starting to doubt Ovi's skills. I seriously doubt I could find many people who don't make geography their profession that could best UFO King. This all sounds like a fat lot of hype to me. Why don't any of you actually prove that Oviraptor is this supposed god of geography? I bet that at best he's as good as King, unless he's secretly a cartography ninja with twenty PhDs. ::) I have been presented no evidence to suggest anything otherwise, so this is the logical natural assumption for me to make.

I'm not even familiar with Ovi, but now I want to know what a cartography ninja looks like.

I like how people other than ourselves our debating out geography knowledge. :P

As for my knowledge extent, I won our 7th grade geography bee (until then I didn't realize my geography knowledge was abnormal). I've always made maps for fun (I have quite a few posted around the forum). Oh yeah, and I made TWO forum games based on geography. :P

Ovi used to be a cartographer.

You lose.

Technically it was work with GIS, but I suppose it can still count. :P

Yeah, see? Ovi used to be in charge of the GPS mapping program for the US Government.

He wins.

He also worked for DeLorme, only one of the biggest map making companies in the world. Urban legend has it that he made Eartha in his spare time.

The man is a living legend in these parts.

I once heard that he gave such accurate directions that a man reached his destination before he even left.  :o
