What is tattoo Tuesday about?

August 20, 2013


40 Maps that will help you make sense of the world.

I don’t know if this is really a tattoo or not, but it is interesting.  Maps and charts have always fascinated me.  I was our family’s navigator when we went on trips.  I was the only one who was interested in reading a map.  I remember a trip to Pittsburgh when my father refused to ask directions, but just blithely crossed every bridge he came to.  (Have you ever been to Pittsburgh?) We never got home.

Here is a map of internet usage.  If you click on the image, it animates.  Do you see us – we’re that little twinkle right over there?


I thank HMS Defiant for the reference.


  1. Oh I love maps, too. There like time machines you can see where you’ve been and where you’re going. But what good is a map on her back, anyway?

    • I know! Even if she wanted to look in the mirror to see it – it would be backwards!
