Mapping Stereotypes

This has been circulating around the internet, so I'd better share it.  A visual artist, Yanko Tsvetkov, has been making mapping stereotypes.  He has many different maps that you can look at, but I'll just post the "Europe according to USA" map stereotype.  I am American, so I feel free to laugh at these because they're pretty accurate stereotypes.

This reminds me of "The world according to Americans" whose artistic source is unknown.

Notice how South Korea and Africa aren't even on the map.  That's because most Americans really know nothing about either of them.

I've been feeling rather depressed and worried about my FBI check, (thanks by the way for posting that awesome page) and when I saw this I was in tears of laughter over some of these. Good job reposting it!
