The point isn't "Africa is so big because it can fit countries in it," the point is "did you realize Africa is so big, it is bigger than all these countries (some of which are actually pretty massive) combined?"

You need the chill out and not get so pointlessly upset about someone comparing sizes of stuff.

I still agree with bigmanblue, it makes no sense. "You can fit all of North America in Africa, and then some!" It's a continent: continents are generally large sums of land. Its like fitting 10 staplers in a box that can hold 200 erasers. Or putting random countries into a continent. "But the way it's drawn makes it appear smaller!" I would assume that people that have been through middle school, let alone high school, would have seen world maps and different map types. With some of the posts I've seen, I'm going to assume most of FJ aren't prepubescent little boys and girls... but it would explain a few things like the irrelevant rolling of images, (something i.e. joke)explain help! comments trolls, etc etc...

Like it says on the content, because of the way maps are drawn it appears smaller than it really is. For a lot of people, including myself, this was kind of surprising. Using the same analogy the bigmanblue used, the content isn't saying "the house is big because it can fit 4 rooms," it's saying "a lot of people think this is a 3 room house, but look, 4 rooms."

Read the title.
Many North Americans and Europeans mostly or exclusively see this version of the world map that has the northern hemisphere represented as much larger in relation to other parts of the world.
Can South America actually fit into Russia almost 3 times. Of course not. They're approximately the same area. But many people wont know because this map is skewed as ****. It shows Greenland to be as large as all of Africa.
So yeah "it is a ******* continent and those are countries", but this image obviously isn't trying to convey something as simple as "thgis house is huge i can prove that because it can fit 4 rooms "

In most maps, europe and north america look much bigger than they actually are, and africa much smaller. This picture shows to people how big the differance really is. I know that africa is a lot bigger than i imagined it being.

Let's take a mathematical approach, mmkay?
[Everything is taken from the English Wikipedia]

Size of Africa: 30,221,532 km^2
Let's see if this adds up.

'Murica: 9,629,091 km^2
中国: 9,596,961 km^2 -- Total: 19,226,052 km^2
Spain: 504,645 km^2 -- Total: 19,730,697 km^2
Portugal: 92,212 km^2 -- Total: 19,822,909 km^2
Belgium: 30,528 km^2 -- Total: 19,853,437 km^2
Netherlands: 41,543 km^2 -- Total: 19,894,980 km^2
Germany: 357,168 km^2 -- Total: 20,252,148 km^2
France: 640,679 km^2 -- Total: 20,892,827 km^2
Switzerland: 41,285 km^2 -- Total: 20,934,112 km^2
Italy: 301,338 km^2 -- Total: 21,235,450 km^2
India: 3,287,590 km^2 -- Total: 24,523,040 km^2
UK: 243,610 km^2 -- Total: 24,766,650 km^2
Hentailand: 377,944 km^2 -- Total: 25,144594 km^2
"Eastern Europe" is pretty undefined, but India seems to be the same size (if not bigger) as the area marked "Eastern Europe", so we can use that for a reference. Eastern Europe [as in this picture] is a lot smaller than India, but taking India as a frame of reference, will debunk the possibility of underestimating the size of Eastern Europe and thereby getting a forced result.
Eastern Europe [India]: 3,287,590 km^2

Overall total: 28,432,184 km^2.
Again, Africa: 30,221,532 km^2
There you go.

Well yeah, when you take a picture of some of the poorest parts of Africa with the lowest concentrations of population and hospitable conditions, you'll find mudhuts like that. I mean, it's like saying "Look at North America, it's a ********" and posting pictures of Detroit, or the boonies. Even in Rome, the major cities will look nice, but if you go to Northern Gaul or even Celtica you would find ********* with villages full of barbaric Pagans that the Romans hadn't gotten to removing.

My bad, Northern Gaul is actually the same place as Celtica. Meant to use Britannia there.

This is retarded. They do realize Africa is a continent and the US is part of the North American continent and China is part of Asia which dwarfs Africa.
