Aiolos Wolf

a marine biologist student by day and come night fall i sing in a band. I am suspicious of religion, advertisers and know-it-alls and I pretty much re-blog anything that catches my attention.

Can we just take a moment to appreciate the Fuller Projection?
This map presents a world that is nearly contiguous and at accurate sizes and shapes to the continents. And there is no “correct” orientation for it (the directionality of north/south being arbitrary after all )
The downsides are that it cuts up Antarctica and distorts the size of oceans, which is bad news for sailors and penguin researchers, but for geography in general it’s AWESOME
(X)

Created by Buckminster Fuller, writer of a gajillion books, owner of a gajillion patents, and the man whose name gave us Buckyballs.

I love this for (at least) two reasons:
1) I feel like if extra-terrestrials ever approached our solar system, they would do so from either the top or bottom (as relative to Earth’s North Pole at least, itself being relative to what we decide to call “top”) so as to avoid collisions/close passes with asteroidal flotsam and cometary jetsam. They’d have a 50% chance of seeing Earth from (half of) this perspective, so we should understand what our world would look like from up/down there.
2) I really love the idea of a flat world where all corners are inhospitable prisons of ice and snow. Sci-fi premise unlocked.

This is not the Fuller Projection. This is.
This pictured above is the Peirce Quincuncial.
I’m just sayin’ since the Fuller Projection is my favorite, and the one pictured above certainly ain’t it.
And yeah, I have shoes with toes.

This is why I love Tumblr, because I can find out that I am totally wrong (someone should tell John Green he is wrong too) and I can not only not feel bad about it, I learn something in the process. It’s like, life man.

illegal immigrants? you mean white people

except that white people didn’t immigrate into the united states… they funded the united states. you can’t illegally immigrate into a society you created. 

did you actually just say white people created society in america

that is the best use of the above picture yet!
