It's a lazy Thursday afternoon...wouldn't you like to know how globes are made at the globe factory*? I thought you might. So have a look.

Representative quote: "One false move, and they could lose parts of Japan."

* = Specifically, this is from the Replogle Globes, Inc. factory in Chicago.

There's more cool stuff on Youtube from The Chicago History Museum.
