Strange Maps

I have no idea how I found this website, but it comes from another WordPress user. Strange Maps is a quirky blog that shows, well, strange maps! Today’s visit to their site showed the original SatNav tools that existed in Britain from the 1920s. Who knew that they made watches that you could put scrolls into and then go on a journey? Maybe this is where the people from TomTom and others got the idea?

Other interesting maps include the breakdown of what people in certain parts of the US call soda. Local nicknames are one of those unique things about a specific place (My grandparents called soda tonic) and make them more real.

Now excuse me, I have to go shiver and sneeze on the couch while watching “What Not to Wear” and lust after having people pick clothes that fit and match out for me.
