    Post Map Drawing Under Pressure

    Sorry for starting 2 new threads within a few minutes, but they just weren't at all related to each other .... this amazes me.

    I couldn't draw this freehand from memory without the crowd watching.

    That's well done. I don't think I could do it either. Maybe he's a closet map nerd like the rest of us, clearly the hand-drawn style is his forte

    Pretty impressive! ...I could draw Saskatchewan live! >_> But that is pretty impressive. I couldn't do that. Not that confidently with a sharpie, especially.

    Inspired by this, I tried to see how well I could do on a world map. But that guy is light years away from me. North America became completely twisted because the map is a little tilted. And some countries got really wrong shapes, which I was already aware of when drawing them (like Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Algeria, Chad, Sudan, Democratic Republic of Kongo). Some places got placed completely wrong, like Tuvalu and Cayman Islands. Tokelau I mislabeled as Tuamotu, Montserrat I labelled as belonging to France when it supposed to be the UK, and Puerto Rico I forgot completely about (there were some other non-independent areas too in the Caribbeans that I left out, but who can keep track of 'em all; and some smaller atolls and islands in the Pacific I left out intentionally, because if you don't have a permanent population, then you're not worth my time at all).

    Very nice. He did a rough version of the same task on SNL many years ago.
