12 Crazy World Maps That Will Blow Your Mind

While maps are usually used to chart land masses, with all this data being collected these days, some have decided to put together some pretty crazy world maps with all that info.

Showing us everything from how dumb the Americans truly are, to what countries men go bald first and just how insanely big Africa truly is, these crazy world maps will blow your mind.

Being an American, I have to say none of these crazy world maps have done anything to break the stereotypes we have around the world, but seeing the many knocks against the French in here at least made me chuckle - Anne thinks otherwise.

1. The Inverted Map - How crazy would this be! Who wants to go swimming in Australia or South America?!

4. Most Attractive Citizens in Europe - France almost made it first! Can't beat the Swedish. We can't argue with this one, maybe if Anne keeps dying her hair blond she'll look Swedish one day.

6. Europe according to the USA. Well, thanks but our armpits DONT SMELL. I mean stereotypes aren't created out of thin air, so some of these are pretty funny. Have to agree that most of the US probably thinks of the Godfather when they hear the word "Italy" and Germany is for sure known for its porn around the world.

7. All these countries fit into Africa... Did you imagine it was THIS big?! This one is the most crazy world map out there - as traditional maps really f*&@ the proportions up when it comes to Africa. I mean just look at how many countries can comfortably fit inside it!

8. Most Commonly Spoken Languages in the USA (Except English & Spanish) - so much German, and French! Who would have thought behind English and Spanish the most popular language in Texas was Vietnamese?!?

9. The Most Photographed Places in the World - Germany apparently! Wow, by the looks of it, the entirety of Germany is being photographed all the time. Can't help but notice the lack of photos being taken in Iran and North Korea!

10. Minutes of a minimum wage job to get a Big Mac... Wow, Europe have it good. And by "good" we mean you can work the shortest amount of time to have the shits the quickest - but being European you'll probably spend that money on healthy brown bread and plain yogurt - the Americans will happily work twice as long and still spend the money on the Big Mac.... sigh.

11. Google Search entries for "Why is {country} so" -  So France is apparently gay. HAHAHAHA, this is hysterical. It's times like these that we lose complete faith in humanity - who apparently thinks that Spain is empty? and that all of Eastern Europe is poor! Oh boy.

12. The Internet black holes in Internet censorship, where news is not free to circulate. Based one some of the facts we've learned about American's here, I'm not heartbroken some people can't find out.
