It certainly isn't me

I want to label a world globe, but:
1. All the globe's are either already labelled, or are completely unmarked (including borders)
And
2. Even if I could find an unlabeled globe, I have no means of labelling the countries neatly (especially the teensy weensy countries)

I don't know if there's a solution, but if anyone thinks of one, feel free to let me know!

Anyway!
The weather has been really nice lately, which it very rarely is. I'm enjoying it by staying indoors and watching tv though I did mow some of the lawn the other day.. but I got a blister so I stopped

Where would you go on holiday if you got a free pass to anywhere? Why? What would you do there?

why do you want to label a globe?
10 days ago - Wednesday 5/16/18 - 12:34:36 AM EST (GMT-5)
I love maps
And also it annoys me that we give countries different names in different languages. I want a globe labelled with each country as It's called in that country

If I could buy a globe like that, I wouldn't need to label one myself

go to france, see historical stuff, eat stuff, drink stuff, find people, see non-historical stuff, see stuff in general, buy stuff, a lot of stuff

i am
sleepy

and
i don't know about your globe
use a magnifying glass and a pen with an incredibly tiny tip
and try to be neat
i have no idea how to be neat. that's a mystery i've been trying to solve my whole life. all i do is squiggly and raggedy.

I'm left-handed - It's impossible to be neat

globes are insanely expensive

$100 isn’t terrible, but it would be neat to own one of the bigger ones
if they weren’t over $400 that is

Also, your trip itinerary is pretty much what I want to do everywhere, always

I'd love one of the massive ones on a big wooden stand, but I could never afford that
Instead I have a handful of various smaller, plastic globes and some printed maps

Yeah, that's the one
Even if I had that much money spare, I couldn't justify that purchase

Oh god
I'm watching episodes of Stars in their Eyes from the 90's and they just blacked up a guy...

Pins, with the flag on one side and the name on the other. Different heights
And then your globe will also be pokey.

Make a giant paper maiche sphere and then use a projector to trace the countries and label as you go

I've thought about pins, but I do want it to be long-lasting and still be able to spin

I don't know that I am anywhere neat enough to draw country outlines I may have to resort to actually making my globe from scratch though..

The distortion makes it so frustrating but it would be fun!

I'm am absolutely not the sort of person who would enjoy an inaccurate map
I got annoyed playing Risk!

Oh and my free pass??
I'd book a flight from Denver to denver with 128 double overnight layovers, in 128 different cities

I have never played risk
I'm just not properly competitive
