Canadian here. It’s a bit bigger than what is shown..


timesink2000

It’s the cold…makes things shrink up


poopellar

I WAS IN THE POOL!


Fresh-Blacksmith6656

^Do ^girls ^know ^about ^shrinkage?


yogos15

What, like laundry?


Stoppels

No… Like when a man goes swimming, afterwards?


Zes_Q

.. it shrinks?


nomadofwaves

Like a frightened turtle!


reptiliannoob

Why does it shrink?


GoldenStarsButter

I don't know how you guys walk around with those things. Edit: As an owner/operator, I *do* know how we walk around with these things, I was just continuing the Seinfeld quote.


musclebarbie22

It shrinks?

vodka7tall

Do they know about shrinkage in Canada?


LovecraftianLlama

You mean Canada’s not in Vermont??


tsumtsumfaithie

It's worse the longer I look


EvilCeleryStick

Oh man I just found Hawaii off the coast of girthy Florida.


CatsRuleDogsDrool_21

Wait til you see tropical Alaska


AlmostChristmasNow

That part at least kind of makes sense, since many maps show Alaska (and Hawai) somewhere around where she drew it.


knob-turned-past-uhf

But last time I checked Alaska had slightly blockier and more distinct shape than "Fat snake stuck inside a sock trying to crawl over and eat Hawaii."


cincituckian

*Flordia


ndisa44

The part that really hit me is the beach that just frames the edge.


Bwgmon

I'm quite fond of Hawaii and Alaska being placed like the insets on normal maps, but not framed as insets.


cleverplaydoh

As an Alaskan, you’d be amazed how many times throughout my life I’ve been asked why Alaska is so cold even though it’s right next to Hawaii. A lot. I’ve been asked this a lot.


DrunkasCheese

I had gotten asked what the elevation was out on the docks when I was living in Juneau. I would reply 10 ft. They would say they thought it would be much higher like thousands.

mondaymoderate

Idiots. Idiots everywhere.


AJ_Deadshow

Yes... thousands of feet above sea level... at the docks. What did they think was docking there, airships?


CrowLower9415

Hindenburg, Goodyear Blimp.


rad2themax

Ok, I have been this idiot. For whatever reason north = elevation to me for too long. Despite living on the coast in the North, including when I lived on the Arctic coast. Once I finally questioned it, I was like…. How am I this dumb. I am literally at sea level. In my defence, I’d never said it to anyone else and had only vaguely thought about it while making bread. Making sourdough in 2020 was what made me finally realize I had this stupid false connection in my brain.


phl_fc

Rhode Island being an actual island is awesome


uffdathatisnice

Yep! Right after the penis head ofthe Americas, Canada. 🤣🤣🤣


Historical_Towel_996

Historically speaking it was. The mainland was called Providence Plantations. The full name was, until very recently, Rhode Island and Providence Plantations.


jetloflin

Oh they finally got around to changing it? Wow! I didn’t think I’d ever see the day!


Historical_Towel_996

Yep. Last year I think. Was too long.


VelvetandElectricity

I like the pacific/Atlantic ocean mix!


akatherder

And then she committed to the Pacific Ocean on the east coast.


wizzlepants

I love the thought of taking a quick boat ride from Florida to Hawaii


WTF_CPC

Don’t you mean “Flordia”?


AcclaimedGroundhog

There are shockingly many Americans who think Alaska is an island.


[deleted]

[удалено]


AkilaeTribe

Sadly yes, I'm a Social Studies teacher and several kids every year think that Hawaii and Alaska are right next to each other, somewhere Southwest of Mexico. It's what all the maps show and they just never questioned it.


GloomyIntroduction32

OMG I never even thought about that. Like the maps that have them in essentially the zoom boxes?? Now I wonder just how many people have that missing knowledge.


D0Cbr0wn_88

What hit me was Canada. So small eh!


charms75

I just don't get it. Canadian here, we had to learn all of the states and their capital cities the same as we had to learn all of our provinces and territories in school. To not even know your own country is so strange and sad to me.


Vellarain

I could fucking do a better map of the states and I am a Candian high school drop out for fucks sakes.


JuicyJabes

We did/do in America as well. It's just poorly done and only the people that care seem to remember.


sallright

Yes, we do too. All I hear these days is “omg why didn’t we learn XYZ in school?” We did. Or at least the teachers taught it. Some people don’t care to learn as kids or as adults and this is the outcome. Most of the items people talk about “not learning” are something I learned in a Cleveland area public school before age 12.


jylesazoso

I like the continuous beach south of Mexico that wraps around to the west on the Oregon coast just north of Alaska in the Atlantic/Pacific. I wonder how distorted this person gets on road trips and if Central/South America blows their mind. Edit: Mexica


timko20677

Well at least she got the oceans on the correct sides.. oh wait, never-mind


skiingdiver

at least she got north carolina above south carolina


[deleted]

[удалено]


furophile

You mean "Flordia"


Gypsopotamus

I honestly don’t even know how she put the pacific on the right side of the map and yet pacific/Atlantic is underneath Mexico… #AND WHY IS ALASKA BELOW MEXICO?!?!


DiscombobulatedLuck8

There are some people who think Alaska and Hawaii are in that location because of the way they're included on maps even though they're there because of space limitations. Those people are often children though.


Self_Reddicated

>Those people are often children though. Those children become adults. If they never cared to notice that fact through 12+ years of education, they won't magically absorb that nugget of truth in adulthood. There are likely a shocking number of adults who don't realize where Alaska is (and have likely never bothered to think about it enough to care).


Stormageddon9999

East coast out here lookin like bacon.


LightningRodofH8

LOL AT first I was thinking it's really not that bad. Mostly looking at the basic shape and being Canadian, I don't know where all the states are. But ya, even I know New Mexico isn't below Texas... And then I noticed Canada in the top right... lol


SpiceyXI

I thought that the Mexica was some sort of Tex-Mex joke and chuckled. Then I noticed it wasn't....and it just got worse and worse....


ChirpSnipeCelly

Every second spent lookin at this I notice something more egregious than the last thing. Admittedly, my own map wouldn’t be great, but ho-ly, this is so dumb


kgallousis

I want to try to free draw one just to see how I do. This is so atrocious, but I don’t have much confidence in my Midwest geography


rhynoplaz

I'll help you with the Midwest, if I can get a hand with the central states. Edit: I just realized we probably talking about the same area. We're going to need a LOT of help.


danieldukh

Yes, have you seen DC yet?


cweaver

Yeah, you know, Washington DC with its shared border with Arizona.


whosthedoginthisscen

This just proves how far removed DC lawmakers are from the good people of Oregon, who bravely defend our southern border with their Ohio neighbors.


subject_deleted

Atlantic/pacific ocean. It's just fucking both of them


SherlockCumbercat

I get that remembering all 50 states location might be tricky, but you should probably get closer. I’m Canadian and could do a better job


kahhblam

At least she knows where some beaches are


DaveIsNice

My thoughts exactly, at first I was thinking I couldn't do better, then it was "apart from Alaska... And Canada... And where is the entire continent of South America... And.. '


imawizard7bis

Florida seems so thick and big, I like it


meowmeowmeow723

You mean Flordia not Florida


TheSpeakingScar

Yea dumbass, it sits in the atlantic/pacific ocean EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT


peter-doubt

Actually, between the atlantic/pacific ocean and the Pacific ocean!


TheSpeakingScar

I STAND CORRECTED


debzmonkey

Also has a Mexico nut sack.


ddub66

Correction: MexicA. She uses the Spanish female lexical gender Mexica with an A. It’s where Mexicans come from, not to be confused with Mexicons. Which, using her geography, come from somewhere near Siberia.


Rbespinosa13

Where’s the fucking Michigan Peninsula? Why is Canada where Maine should be? It hurts me


DerbinKlamz

You mean "mishigan"


Bubblesnaily

You mean Main? Gotta make room for Washington St.


Beer2Bear

Ohio here, I'm near the Mexico border??


Fellowes321

That’s right. Just west of Texas and north of Alaska.


pilotdog68

I think she actually believes Alaska is an island near Hawaii because of the inset on so many maps


i_broke_wahoos_leg

That was my thought too. Which is even weirder because it really doesn't look like she's ever seen a map...


[deleted]

[удалено]


rootoo

She also thinks that the shape of the continental US is a whole continent.. she thinks Texas is Mexico and Maine is Canada. I doubt she could find the US on a world map.


FridgeBaron

I like how Florida is bigger than Canada and Mexico possibly combined


0bservatory

you just made me realize how shallow her world view is


SandyDelights

She’s almost 30, she has, it’s just been 25 years. It was a poster on Miss Phillip’s wall in Kindergarten. She doesn’t remember much of it, but she damn well knows Alaska is one of the Hawaii islands.


CanAlwaysBeBetter

Of course it's an island. How else do you expect it to be so close to Russia, smart guy?


Aspect-of-Death

Explains why so many people in Ohio are worried about border security.


MattFromWork

I was going to say, according to GOP governors, all states share a border with Mexico


spyboy70

Ohio...the south of the north


DefrockedWizard1

From what I've heard Ohio's Congrescritters talk about, it would seem so


ThirdSpectator

I'm wondering what those big patches of no-man's land are... I miss the 'here be dragons' tags lol


hybridmind27

Flyover states no one cares about. Signed, A Nebraskan


tstramathorn

I agree about that living in Wyoming...but Wyoming doesn't even exist so....


hybridmind27

Lol sometimes I think I actually prefer the general populace doesn’t know we exist.


usernamedottxt

But Kansas is in the map. Just…. South of Texas.


Optimusphine

That's the edge of the earth where you would fall off if you crossed over it.


311isahoax

Wisconsin here, glad we're not a part of this mess


brooksy54321

me too. but I think, according to this map, I live in Oregon.


Chip_Swimming

I do live in Oregon and I thought we drove south to get to California, but I guess I was confused 🙈


edwartica

There must be a wormhole on the Columbia river. How else are we getting all the way to the East Coast to Washington state?


knob-turned-past-uhf

Could be worse. I now live in `Main` according to this, which is right next to `Wash St.` (You know, the patron street saint of clean clothing) and `NY`.


Reatona

I live in Washington State and now I'm really peeved I have to travel 3,000 miles to get to my favorite Pacific beach.


ungolden_glitter

No, no, look again. The Pacific is right there on the east coast, clearly labeled. You can also tell because the Bahamas are there.


myfugi

Washingtonian, also left out. Which is good, because both our neighboring states and the pacific coast seem to have been relocated or deleted, so who knows where we’d end up. Edit: NVM I found us, we’re landlocked in the middle of that northeastern blob. I don’t like this turn of events *at all*


TheDude-Esquire

Washington isn't left out, it's up there in what is broadly New England. You now live in the Pacific Northeast.


specifickindness

Lol I like that you labeled the ocean correctly according to this map


Mnoonsnocket

Illinoisan here. Hi neighbor 👋


JackfromShellKnob

Super excited to be in the Atlantic northwest!


fancyglob

Lost it at Mish. E: on second thought, I'll accept it since we are so fucking far away from Ohio now.


whoscoal

Out of all the times people forget about South Carolina how is this the one time where someone gets our state right but then puts Oregon where Nevada should be.


MrFlailz

Well I’d hope so since they’re from North Carolina


Illustrious_Bobcat

You'd be surprised... I lived in NC for 7 years and once actually argued with a woman, who was born and raised there, about the location of Georgia in relation to NC. Homegirl vehemently believed that Georgia was sandwiched in between NC and SC because "the Carolinas are like the bread of a sandwich"... Worst part about it was that her home town (in which we were residing) was about 7-10 minutes from the SC border. Now I'm in SC and things don't seem to have improved with the relocation...


Tammycles

The importance of "Beach" might be a clue about her priorities.


outworlder

It's not even a high priority if she thinks the Pacific Ocean is on the East Coast. The difference between the Atlantic and Pacific is pretty striking. A blind person can tell the difference between them just by what the water tastes like.


Head_East_6160

Wait what? They taste different???


outworlder

The Atlantic is saltier than the Pacific at all latitudes.


legendary_mushroom

You know I have never thought about this but you're absolutely right, I grew up.in CT but moved to CA as an adult; i thought I was maybe just misremembering what salt water tasted like cuz of being a kid, but it feels different.


Whole_Tap_8309

Just noticed she wrote “beach” along the shoreline 💀


Some_Silver

It's a common misconception that Delaware is a state. Kinda like Pluto. Beach is actually the 50th US state. It's also the largest with roughly 1 million square miles of territory across 100,000 miles of coastline. Dunno what they're teaching kids in school nowadays


schoolpsych2005

Someone did not watch enough ‘where in the world is Carmen Sandiego’ as a kid and it shows. Edit: thank you for the gold kind stranger!


igetalogiawheni

I think it’s illegal to show Hispanic people on TV in North Carolina. I’ve never heard anybody say that but it sounds right.


cooperkab

Not Hispanics - Mexicans! /s. Source: I live in NC


Panterable

This is funny but entirely untrue. I saw a Mexican maid during one scene of Matlock Twenty seven years ago . Source...North Carolinian


MuckRaker83

Us Pennsylvanians do get along well with our northern neighbors in Washington State.


chrom_ed

As a washingtonian I've always felt some kinship for Pennsylvania. I feel like you have the same ratio of cool cities to redneck backwoods as us.


Cyouinhellcandyboyz

As a fellow Washingtonian we no longer have to worry about East coast bias now being in the northeast


Flooberoid

Everything about this is awful but if I had to pick a favorite part it'd have to be the unnamed, lawless badlands that apparently separate California (and... Illinois?) from everything else.

SeaworthinessIll3750

Better than I could do. I can name all 50 states in alphabetical order thanks to my 3rd grade teacher, but I might run into an issue trying to hand draw a map of the US.


BoomBoomBroomBroom

You basically just missed the column of the old man with the hat! If you had gotten that in then everything would’ve fit together - Minnesota - hat - Iowa - head - Missouri - shirt - Arkansas - pants - Louisiana - boots Bonus points for the Tennessee frying pan making Kentucky fried chicken


GDubs_Nole

The shape of Texas is pretty good for how bad this is


itsthebrod

But who doesn't know Texas borders Mexico? 🙄


jrock7979

The Atlantic/Pacific Ocean is sneakily the funniest part.


Aspect-of-Death

Pacific ocean is everywhere except the pacific ocean. Also, the area marked as atlantic/pacific is neither. It's the gulf of mexico.


Do_You_Even_Fist

Or just, y'know, Mexico.


squiddlebiddlez

“Mexica”


I_kickflipped_my_dog

What did it for me is that it looks like she almost forgot NC was above SC, which is the state she is from.


Poopy-Plumbus

Have her draw a clock next


thatsmymoney

Ask her to point at where Alaska is on the clock


Raokako

As a Canadian, small Canada is really making me laugh!


herbtarleksblazer

I'm liking the new location of the pacific ocean.


ImaginaryStudent9097

And that Rhode Islanders are now, technically, Pacific Islanders? Way to use those context clues!!


chris_elbow

TIL rhode island is an actual island 🤔

That little RI in the ocean is legitimately funny.

Don’t reveal the dead zones between the state clusters. The other nations must not know.


pab_guy

Those are obviously the Great Lakes duh


contemporary_cat1

Cool! Can you ask her to draw a picture of Europe, Africa, South America and Asia as well? I'm curious what she'll make of those!


changelogin

> South America She'd be like I *already* drew the south america.


Hot_Box8010

She adds a jungle under "Mexica" and that's it.


Karmachinery

I want to see what she would draw for Antarctica.


Aspect-of-Death

It's all beach in the Atlanticpacific ocean.


rmoss20

Her head may explode


mcclutch7

Probably for the best /s


Youngmoneasy

I met a woman working at Western Union in Walmart.. nuff said.. who believed Canada was part of the US but couldn’t find it in the list of states.. half an hour of trying to convince her that Canada is a totally separate country she called her manager on the phone to help find it.


CircleDog

Met someone once who thought Canada was an American city.


TreemanTheGuy

When I went to Disney world when I was 12 a nice older cashier asked where I was from. I said Canada. She asked what state it's in because she's never heard of it. That's when I knew for certain that there are 12 year olds who know more about what's going on in the world than adults


gitrjoda

Washington St is near the pacific ocean! She got one!


Individual_Ad3194

I know some very smart people that are bad at geography, but this is unforgivable. This is what you get when someone "Don't know, don't cares" their way through school.


Th3At0mB0mb

I definitely can't fill in the location of all 50 states on the map, but c'mon, this is a little ridiculous


Jindabyne1

I’m from Ireland and I could do a fucking hell of a lot better than this.


parrotopian

It's nice that we're in the Pacific now though!


CumBubbleFarts

That might be the worst part about this rendering… How do you not know what ocean *your own state* has coastline on?


PlanetLandon

Canadian here. There’s a few free sites that time you as you try to fill in all of the states names on a map. It still takes me well over a minute to do it. It’s all their damn little states that mess me up.


k75ct

And she votes ☑️


DUPCangeLCD

Ugh. A girl I went to college with, who went to Catholic high school, was shocked when I said the sun is the closest star to us. “How is the sun a star? It’s so much bigger than real stars”


TheBestLittlePotato

>“How is the sun a star? It’s so much bigger than real stars” That was my classmates when I was like 7...


Lucky_Mongoose

Did she also think the professor was about 6 inches tall in the front of the lecture hall?

A girl in my college biology lab asked the professor, "So like, is a cell smaller than an atom?"


colonel_underbridge

Gullible_gullible84

Wait is Hawaii next to Florida!?


dukeChedda

I would guess they put it there because that's where the insets for Hawaii and Alaska are usually shown on maps


Destroy_The_Rich

Hawaii is still in the Pacific though. She moved several states and an entire ocean.


Anonnymush

50 percent of people are below average intelligence and about 35 percent are noticeably stupid


throwtruerateme

Yeah this is no longer the fault of her schooling, she's fucking 30, the whole internet is at her disposal, she just doesn't give a fuck


rsg1234

Mishigan and Mexica


Lord_Woody

I like the position of Alaska. To be fair to her, my daughter, who has an MA from a good UK university and went to a good secondary school, when asked by her husband where Alaska was, replied, "it's somewhere in that Spain" (sic)


Helios4242

And to be fully fair, alaska and hawaii are frequently insets so are understandably displaced if you're just pattern recognizing.


debzmonkey

Although most people know Alaska is cold right?


The--Sentinel

Not gonna lie I wish North Dakota wasn’t real either, we have the worse people ever


indigo-black

I'm gonna go out on a limb and shift some blame on her. She should have some accountability for this hot mess.

If she lives in Wyoming, it counts for much more.

What state you live in? "Beach."


Evan-wood

She is clearly over qualified to become a politician


Tammycles

I don't see this as a schooling issue. You can only fight complete disinterest so much.


International_Big756

I’ll be honesty, I know where everything is mostly geographically, but i can’t remember where some states are. So it has failed me too..
