Kiriban and why our maps are wrong !

Tue Nov 11, 2014, 10:05 AM

Well the seven millions pageviews are fast approaching ^_^
And yep I'll do another Kiriban for the occasion :D

Quick reminder :  the Kiriban is a popular custom among Japanese web pages. Basically if you are here when my page reach the #7 000 000 hits, take a screenshoot, send it to me and you'll get a free request of ( almost ) anything from me.
Only thing is this time, the Kiriban won't have priority over other works and will be in queue ( I have quite a list right now ^^ ;  )

Having two persons getting the number is possible in case of server lag I believe, but it's VERY rare. So please don't cheat, I don't want to go through photoshop to detect false screenshoots..
It is worth noticing that on the last Kiriban my page made a jump of several thousands in ten minute XP

On others news, I will soon do an updated version of the Felarya map :) 
Large map of Felarya by Karbo

It's going to be a pretty big project as I want to have at least slightly more realistic distance informations this time XP And browsing through different maps, I came by chance across something I didn't know about earth maps but that is pretty interesting.
Basically the map we know and use the most is the Mercator model and ... it's wrong ! It exaggerates massively the scale towards the poles, giving an erroneous picture of the relative sizes of different countries. For example Greenland looks as big as South America whereas it is in fact one ninth the size.

Granted, it's bound to happens because our earth is spherical and a cartographer will always have to distort it one way or another if it is to be printed on flat paper, but for example the Peters model do a better job at conveying the actual countries' size, although the price paid is that countries are progressively squashed towards the poles and stretched across the equator.

The Peters model:

It's where you realize Africa actually represents nearly one quarter of Earth's total land area !

If anyone wants a chance to check out Karbo's tomes and hasn't had a chance to do that yet, I'm conducting a giveaway for volumes 1 & 2. No catch, just comment that you're interested or PM me and I'll enter you into the random selection. I'll announce the winner on 11/30.

I legally purchased the tomes and got Karbo's permission to do this. Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanks to a friend of mine, I may finally be able to get my hands on tome 1 of your manga, Karbo! Not to sound mistrusting, as you know I love your work a lot, but I'd like to make sure, the site you use to sell your manga, it's perfectly safe to buy from, right? I know it sounds like a stupid question, given people buy your things all the time, but one can never be too careful.

All of the vendors Karbo uses allow Paypal for secure processing. I know for certain that E-Junkie directs you to Paypal itself to complete the transaction, so that's as secure as you can get. Not sure if Lulu does the same, but Lulu has a long history as a reputable site with a very high pedigree of management. And Amazon is Amazon. :)

Even if you don't use Paypal, these are still very reputable sites.

Thanks very much~ I don't wanna sound like I don't trust Karbo, but I wanted to make sure my friend didn't have a reason to worry, since he's buying the tome for me and he was a little nervous since he didn't think the site was trustworthy, even though I figured it was 'cuz people buy Karbo's stuff all the time and Karbo even gets back to people who query about things.

THanks ^^
