Watch a Map Geek Explain Weird Geography Quirks

In “A Map Geek’s Guide To The World,” a self-proclaimed geek from the Wendover Productions YouTube channel explains some of the world’s most surprising geographical quirks. 

In the past, Wendover Productions has produced interesting videos on topics that range from self-driving cars to the psychology of advertising, but its latest guide to geography may be its most impressively comprehensive. From unexpected borders to the world’s longest domestic flight (11 hours from France to France), the video covers an impressive amount of territory in just four minutes. Check it out above.
