Beschreibung: All of us have seen a world map at some point in our lives before, but it is very difficult to imagine how certain countries and parts of the world compare to each other in size that are far apart. In this video, I explore why the world looks very different than how it is portrayed in the Mercator Projection map. I then go on to explore how certain countries are unexpectedly larger or smaller than what they appear to be, and how some places looks wildly different than our perceptions.

PS; Don't totally hate on the Mercator Projection, it's actually a really useful map for navigation and on keeping the correct shape of countries while sacrificing the size that we can all laugh about!

Music is by Ross Bugden. He makes excellent music, please check out his channel!

Check out these funny difference between Canadians and Americans (and our photo credits and sources) and don’t forget to leave a comment on the video letting us know of any other differences you guys are aware of: Did you enjoy our video? Follow us on: Facebook - Instagram: Twitter - Pinterest: See more lists on our website: When we said Canadians and Americans were different, we were not joking. For example, did you know Canada has two official languages (English and French)? Guess how many official languages America has. If you enjoy Pandora and Spotify, don’t go to Canada. Licensing restrictions will prevent you from enjoying them. Also, Americans are more confrontational than Canadians. Again, these differences are not necessarily a bad thing, just a different way of viewing things such as government. Canadians tend to trust their government more than Americans trust theirs (then again, can you blame us). Get ready because we are about to share with you 25 funny differences between Canadians and Americans.
