Simple as title says. If you were handed the map paintbrush, how would you change westeros/planetos?
Personally I'd increase the size and mount of the Iron Islands. Right now theres roughly 30 (many too small to be important) islands, of which 7 are of any great size of importance. (Pyke, Harlaw, Great Wyk, orkmont, etc.). I'd double the number of minor islands, and add another 3 large islands. One the size of great wyk again and 2 more closer in size to pyke and harlaw. Currently the iron islands are the smallest region, smaller by a 1/4 compared to the crown lands (which isn't really a true region) by my reckoning. These islands would increase the actual threat of the ironborn IMO. TL;DR: Add more big islands to iron islands.
Studying as in either formal or informally.
I can't be the only one, can I? I am older (in my 40's) and have returned to school to finish an undergrad degree I started years ago (before I had kids). I'm majoring in Geography with an emphasis on Urban/Human.
Before learning anything, I was totally on board with capitalism. Now I see how capitalism is eating away at the social benefits of living in an urban environment, and I don't much like it. I guess you could say I'm now somewhat woke and feel like an idiot for ever being completely pro-capitalism.
The only point to my post is to find out who else changed their opinion from being totally 100% for capitalism to being (completely, or somewhat or almost completely) against it?
EDIT: thanks to everyone who has replied, it's really great information for me. Being so new to studies, its now clear I am using words out of context, at least somewhat. I likely meant something different than pure capitalism, but not sure what the pro... keep reading on reddit ➡
Has the focus on HS2 and the brexit wasted invaluable resources that should have been ploughed into fast reliable broadband to actually allow this country to even remotely function from home en masse.

Chris Neal put up a post about this quiz over on Massively.
So how did you do?
Throughout the economic development of the United States, our population has shifted from East to West. The United States used to incentivize the citizens who moved westward to areas with less infrastructure and services by offering free or subsidized land. While the US doesn't give away its land anymore, taxpayers continue to subsidize the housing industry through HUD every year. All 50 states separately apply for CDBG grants each year to subsidize American's affordable homeownership and rental housing, along with services for the homeless. These funds are largely provided based on each state's ability to count the homeless in their state (which is an expensive endeavor itself) and other collected data.
The geography of homelessness is made even more complicated because [some state... keep reading on reddit ➡
I've run trivia nights for the past few years, and in the process I've collected a huge mass of geography trivia questions. I'm sure you've seen some of them before, but let's see how well you can do on 10. No peeking! Also, it's very possible there are some mistakes in these. Let me know if anything is amiss.
Q. (A classic) Two countries which are doubly landlocked (landlocked, and only border other landlocked countries).
A. >!Liechtenstein and Uzbekistan!<
Clarification: Sea here (pun intended).
Q. (Another classic) There is only one 'quadripoint' between countries (a point where 4 borders meet). Where?
A. >!Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Namibia!<
Clarification: This is actually two tri-points separated by about 100 meters. But it is often referred to as a quadripoint because it is the closest case.
Bonus: There is only 1 in Canada, between provinces/territories. Any idea?
I have a BS in computer science and currently working as a software developer but I am fed up with this job. I love geography so I want to start a career in geography.
From the feared hordes of the Scythians and the Huns, to the powerful and cosmopolitan Mongol Empire. From the Russian Tsardom and Soviet Union, or the rule of the Qing Dynasty, to the modern day. The people and land of Central Asia has left a profound and fascinating impact on our human history and in worldbuilding. Whether it's often seen devastating hordes like the Dothraki of Game of Thrones, or the full breadth seen in works like Elizabeth Bear's Eternal Sky.
So, how have you incorporated or been inspired by this part of the world?
Do you work with classic hordes, what are your thoughts on this trope and how does that affect how you use it?
Do you take inspiration from the Pax Mongolica, or the conflict between remaining nomads or becoming sedentary imperialists?
Do you work with influences from Tengriism, or the unique forms of Islam, Christianity, and Buddhism of the Steppe?
Do you utilise icons such as Horse Archery, or the Silver Tree? How do
There is a certain stereotype that says Americans don’t know anything about world geography and where each country is. Is it true?
So I don’t think it’s improbable that the csa is well armed do to capturing the industrial Midwest. What I have trouble believing is that the CSA, at least initially has any foreign aid. The only border it has that isn’t the rival American factions, is Canada who potentially will intervene against the CSA. Also the only access to the ocean the CSA initially has is the st Lawrence River, which again the Canada problem. Plus the other factions most likely have the majority of the old us navy. While there is planes, but their effects are limited.

Aight so in light of recent discoveries for me, I've been wondering. What the heck is the geography for this franchise. I'm not talking about how Hades tower is significantly closer than it looks, I'm talking about where the 3 games seem to overlap.
According to the geography hinted in the game, Firelink Shrine from DS1 is the arena for Demon Princes found in the Dreg Heap in DS3. Firelink is also just below Earthen peak in that same DLC which can presumably be very close to/the same area we tread in Dark Souls 2. Just after the demons/firelink bossfight we look over the edge and we see the Ringed City, and eventually when we fight Gael, Anor Londo can be viewed in the background
This gives us a point where the 3 games really cross over, rather poetically its DS1 Firelink. But is this even possible geographically speaking? Anor Londo is facing the wrong direction and if it's anything to go by, Lothric would be around/built over undead burg in this case.
Maybe I'm overthinking... keep reading on reddit ➡
Welcome back to Science Musume the show where you can put your brain in something more producting than jacking off to hot monster ladies. Today we're talking Geography, so every extra-species come from different mythologies so this can help us answer one of the most popular question in the monster musume Fandom. Are there any hot monsters in your area? Here are my little ideas then you pitch the show. The golden trio we're talking about lamias, arpies and centaurs , in my opinion, come from the Mediterranean zone since they come from greek/Roman mythology. Now you tell me what do you think about it.
I'm curious where folks are from? I live in the midwest of the USA. Here in the midwest a cold shower in January is NOT = a cold shower in July. I don't know the difference in degrees but during the winter months the cold water is much, much, much colder than in the summer. I started my CS journey in January of 2019. During the summer I was occasionally disappointed that the water wasn't as bone-chilling cold. But when winter arrived . . . brrr. Here we are in late February and tbh I have still not totally adjusted to the chilling cold water and I have to really stick it out to last a full two minutes.
