    Map Europe

    Inspired by Map the States, I tried to map Europe. Kinda bad that I know more about US states than my own continent. Those damn countries down in old Yugoslavia that got me.

    Just because your sign off after you're shift is done, doesn't mean that it's over and put blinders on. You're a cop 24/7 wether you like it or not. If thats something you can't handle, you should find a new line of work!

    You mean the UK plus the Isle of Man (which isn't part of the UK)?

    That's a relief, as I managed at least to place the UK correctly.

    I'd like to try it where we put all the crap countries on the moon, with no effort made at life support. Then start over with the newly created blank spaces.

    I am from the UK.

    Isle of Man is part of the British Isles. Great Britain is England, Wales and Scotland. The UK is GB plus Northern Ireland. The British Isles (or Britain) is the UK, Isle of Man and Channel Islands.

    Simple, huh?

    OK that makes sense.....

    The Isle of Man is it's own country, yes? And I assume the Republic of Ireland doesn't fall into one of the designations?
