Well, now I know Ovi's credentials. Thanks, that was useful. Somebody finally stopped and gave me actual information, instead of just spouting out another bunch of fill-in-the-blank Chuck Norris jokes. I tend to be a little skeptical when all the information that I'm provided with are rehashed memes that I can't even work with.

That's atrociously unhelpful.

It's just common knowledge that Ovi is a math and geography genius.  :)

I just read this starting at page 4. This thread is awesome.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

And Ovi has yet to present us his from-memory-worldmap despite him saying in one post he can't wait to get home to get on with it. :T

Maybe it is time we elect a new geography king?

Oh yeah! :D Well, I started one, but the paper was too small to fit in the detail I wanted. I never tried to make it on the computer cause I feel like it would lose quality (I'm not very good on a tablet :\). I will have to come up with a way to get around this...

Ovi and Slartibartfast have the wrong respective names.

New Zealand is taking Japan's place while it goes on vacation.

Kinda related, here's a blog that features pictures of game maps drawn from memory. It's neat.

I'm more concerned about what shape you think India is. 

Also you think Madagascar is Zanzibar?
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.
