Don’t Be Hating on Mercator

The hipsters are hating on Mercator all over twitter and the blogs. I don’t know about you but I’m grateful for Mercator every time I travel. I seem to move left and right from Phoenix on a map. Plus who cares about Greenland? Let them have their big map, you don’t want to live there anyway.

Look, if you’d rather live in a world of the Bonne projection I won’t stop you. I’ll just come find you on my practical Mercator map.
