Asteroid strikes mapped

NASA released the map below in November 2014. Its purpose is to show the distribution of planet-sunken celestial bodies using the Near-Earth Object Observation Program data. The map represents all perceived asteroid impacts in the category 1-20 meters in diameter, i.e., the smallest celestial body.

Yellow spots are the daylight, while blue indicates the nighttime impacts on the map. From there, it is clear that we can not hide from the asteroids because the impacts are spread evenly across the Earth’s surface.

Culinary Map of Europe According to France 2015

So the French see European cuisine.

In the twentieth century, before the Scandinavian kitchen and the various fusion kitchens (fusion cuisine, if we combine the culinary arts of different cultures, mix and try to create new dishes), has come to fruition, one of the leading powers of gastronomy was undoubtedly France.

The French are also proud of this and strive to maintain the memory of this period.
Classical French cuisine varies according to the size of the country and the large number of its regions. Well, yes, the French baguette, the croissant.

But do not forget about the famous onion soup, eclair donut, Croque Monsieur sandwich, Coq au Vin (more simply red wine chicken), mustard rabbit on Ratatouille (This delicious single-piece is a tremendous full-length Pixar animation film also commemorates (Ratatouille), if you have not seen it, I recommend it!), fish soup and snails.

The French are a proud nation, aware of their varied gastronomy, not appreciating the culinary art of the surrounding countries. In many cases, they are characterized by a word, property, and diet (funny but very serious).

If we know the cuisine of a particular European people, this can, in many cases, put a smile on our faces.

Not all European countries are known for their Culinary genius, however, and to differentiate these “disappointments” from the Culinary aristocracy of Europe, many tourists have had to use Culinary maps that point out which countries have great foods and which ones are well… disappointments.

Hitchhiker’s Guide Map to The Arab Spring

Ever heard of The Arab Spring? If yes, you probably agree that it has to be one of the most powerful uprisings in recent years.

Having lasted for over 3 years, with almost all of Northern Africa and the Middle East enveloped in the protest, the Arab Spring was no little affair. It all started with a blaze… literally – a man burnt himself to death. It didn’t get any less intense from there.

With such a dramatic event starting up the Uprising and spreading over so many countries across the map, you can bet this was no half-hearted attempt at revolution that just died down without bringing about some change or the other. You could even say the Uprising was largely successful for many countries.

Love Map of Europe 2015

Love. One word we hear over and over and over again but remains somewhat hard to explain or define. After all, how could we define something so abstract? How can one explain something that expresses itself in so many different forms?

With love being such an abstract thing, as emotions usually are, you can bet that most people would have different ideas of what love is. And while there might be quite a several similarities, you can also bet there would be unique ideas and preferences. This funny map displays this rather perfectly.
