Comment on left side, right side, upside down

In my room, i've got a map I bought in Japantown. Japan is centered. The continent placement is arbitrary as far as cartographers are concerned, and no matter how they place the stuff, people will still speculate. Only disappointing aspect is, the damn rectangular convention is shamelessly inaccurate, though admittedly preferable to that choppy unintuitive orange peel design.

I wonder how messed up my macro sense of space and distance is because of looking at wacky maps all my life? :P

IMO, If you want to overcome all the nonsense, buy a glass globe and a concave platform with airjets, constantly rotating the globe as it hovers above the platform.
