Ever wondered why @Michigan has two pieces? How about why @Alaska isn't connected to the rest of the United States?

Other bizarre borders include @NewYork and @NewJersey, where #Liberty #island and #EllisIsland are weirdly part of New York but are surrounded by New Jersey waters. Even stranger is that New York only owns a small peice of Ellis Island.

For this and more about @Oklahoma @Kentucky @Missouri and other States in the #USA , check out this video

#TheTrueSize - size of #USA compared to @RussianFederation ('as is' on map and superimposed on #Russia ).

The common #world #map is the #Mercator and it exaggerates the #size of countries nearer the #poles (US, Russia, Europe), while downplaying those near the #equator (e.g. the #African Continent).

Using projections from www.TheTrueSize.com we show the actual comparisons. For actual #area sizes (in sq km) see our world #profile page (click on Places)

#TheTrueSize - size of #USA compared to @UnitedKingdom .

The most common #world #map is the #Mercator and one of the most common criticisms is that it exaggerates the #size of countries nearer the #poles (US, Russia, Europe), while downplaying the size of those near the #equator (the #African Continent).

Mirror City is a visual story through some of the great American cities:

#Chicago #SanFrancisco #SanDiego #LasVegas and #LosAngeles . These clips were all processed from their original form, into the kaleidoscopic visuals that you see in this video.
