I was surprised how small the UK really is. Here is the actual size of Michigan next to the UK.

Time for Michigan to create the next world empire!

A governor is not the State.

And I have always known this.

Folks really, REALLY underestimate the power of these individual states, and how they would fair on the world stage. Most foreign folks have no clue.

The only thing that is important is that we would have whipped Ohio's butt in the war for Toledo.

. . .. and it is relived every time the Wolverines demolish the Buckeye's. :heehee:


In the end. . . bribing us with the U.P. was a fair deal. . . who the hell would want that shit hole now anyway? :dunno:

How many other states can make a claim to territorial gain by military belligerence, other than Michigan and Texas? :rock:

We won that war. Ohio had to take Toledo. Too bad we didn't know what Detroit would become

Except that is not really fair.
I could not recognize the red shape so had to look it up.
And they are including the Great Lakes as part of MI.
Over half that red area is water.

Why the hell is Iceland almost as big as Poland?
It's not. That's the point of the app.
Sizes are greatly distorted on a flat map as you move closer to the poles.

I dragged Iceland into Poland so you get the real size

Doesn't matter.

You have no idea the value of fresh water in this world today.

You act like that is salt water.

:rolleyes:

. . . and to top that all off. . . some of that area is some of the most navigated, most used area of maritime waterways in North America. Chicago would not be the city it is w/o the Mississippi and those red areas.
