    What fascinates me is that over 3000 years, China took and lost all kinds of territory up and down and across Asia, but apparently never conquered Korea, which is right there for the taking--well, apparently not for the taking.

    I am angry to find out the "Neutral Strip" in the Panhandle went to Oklahoma. Stolen, no doubt, gawdamn dirty thieving dirt burglars.

    I've been watching the Man in the High Castle; Japan apparently had another couple of good years in that story.

    Wow. Sorry for the 6 month delay. I think it's a good series, but t maybe I am easy to please. It is an interesting idea, based on a book.

    This is a fragment of a map of the New World prepared by Piri Reis, a Turkish cartographer, who apparently made it drawing upon Columbus' lost map (which was in the hands of a Spaniard when the Ottomans took him as a slave).
    It was presented to Sultan Selim I in 1517, after Egypt was conquered.

    Cuba was the key to the new world—Florida didn’t interest them as much, from the looks of it.

    I read your headline as "if you like Naps "
    During this lockdown naps are kinda cool
    But these MAPS are way cooler.
