Finally. This is much better than the current iPhone map.


#3

That guy must have really pointy teeth.


#4

Even with lemon juice, he must have worked fast to avoid the apple turning brown. Amazing!


#5

Admit it- we all thought it was going to be an article about a discontinued Apple device.


#6

This is a very strange map projection–the Pacific has been shrunk, look how close New Zealand is to South America.


#7

Seriously. A cool idea, but what a poor map. Once again greenland has been magically engorged to the size of Africa. The guy even had a (mostly) spherical surface he could use


#8

Rotten to the core.


#9

Probably full of Gummosomes:

I agree. Working under water with lemon juice in it would have probably solved it. He could have even just used store-bought lemonade that was thinned. The lemon juice would then permeate the exposed flesh and work better to prevent browning. Spraying only gets the surface.

@donnerhai
My thoughts exactly. A wasted opportunity.

Mercator foul!!!

Greenland is way the fuck too big. Bigger than the US and Canada combined? Please!

That’s what comes from copying a flat map instead of a globe. Greenland is 0.8 million square miles. Africa is 11.6 million square miles. Which one looks bigger here?

I once did it with a potato.
