  1. Vermont gets erased a lot. Hmmm…

  2. David Marjanović says:

    LOL. Any chance any of these are photoshopped? Or have you sacrificed yourself and actually watched Faux Noise so we don’t need to?

  3. Jadehawk says:

    if Media Matters started photoshopping the images for their articles, it’d blow up in their faces immediately, so I have relatively high confidence these are real

    I can’t watch Fox News on account of not having a TV

  4. David Marjanović says:

    That’s what I get for not reading the first line.

    Didn’t you once have some kind of projector? I supposed if you had that, it was a fairly safe assumption that you had a TV, too…

  5. Jadehawk says:

    I don’t and never have had anything that would fit the description of “projector”. I do own a TV, as in the piece of hardware on which one can watch things, but I don’t actually have access to TV, as in the stuff in the cable/airwaves, because it’s an ancient TV and I don’t have one of those digital-to-analog converters Obama was handing out a few years back

    Not surprisingly I only get the last two …

    “New Hampshire” is Vermont both times. NH is next to VT and looks the same, only upside down.

    “Nevada” is Utah; NV is to the west of UT, between UT and California (which I hope you’ll recognise).

    Ah. The 69-ing states.

    There could be an Oslo, Germany. Of course, there’s a more famous Oslo in Minnesota.

    In the last map Egypt must not have paid their rent, got evicted, and had to move to Iraq.

    There could be an Oslo, Germany.

    At the risk of ruining one of your successful jokes… no, there really couldn’t. There’s never been noticeable immigration to Germany from Norway.

    …There might theoretically be an Ostloh, though. :-)

    What do the Muslim Brothers think about paying rents? Sacred duty or haram? I suppose we’re going to find out.

    I sincerely doubt there ever were all that many Greeks in my neck of the woods.

  12. David Marjanović says:

    Please explain.

  13. David Marjanović says:

    …Oh. Sorry. Due to a combination of the distance & angle between my eyes and the screen and the fact that it’s 3 at night, I completely failed to notice the link in your comment. *facepalm*

    Corinth has a reputation that Oslo lacks. :-) And, really, German-speakers don’t name places after famous other places, unless you count Bremerhaven or Wiener Neustadt and Wiener Neudorf.

  14. David Marjanović says:

    *poke*

    Jadehawk, please read your e-mail and reply to the most urgent question.

  15. David Marjanović says:

    *batting eyelashes*

    HAHAHA wow, Egypt has superpowers.
