School is very much like Marmite – you either loved it, or you hated it. But what if we were all taught by way of the map? We’re sure everyone would have got A’s all round.

Let’s face it, we always learn about the good stuff once we’ve graduated. Of course, it’s always good to know where Antarctica is on the map, how many sonnets Shakespeare wrote, and learn about the past mistakes and destruction of WWII, but does all of that really useful information prepare you enough for the world we live in? Of course not. That’s the Internet’s job.

To show you what we (mostly I) think, we’ve (again mostly me) put together a rather fantastic collection of maps that are hilarious, NSFW, interesting and god damn revealing. Enjoy.
