Haha, that Global Subway map is an epic failure. According to it, Melbourne is in the middle of South Autralia, when in reality it's actually just south of Sydney. Whoever made it is obviously a fool.

I thought all you Aussies were jolly. Maybe just the ones who come to the US, I dunno. Merry Christmas anyway!

A Fountain? Some shit? A spiral? House? Clothespin? Boldest work of art in recent history?

You're an epic failure, the map wasn't made to be proportional, and if it was, who would care about Melbourne being in the wrong place when Africa is only a little bigger than that of Spain.

That's a cool transit map. If you enlarge the image, and read the text at the bottom, you will see it is from a new book that looks like it might be worth a look, too.

I wonder if our genius first poster noticed any other subtle distortions in the map. :)

That is the way transit maps are often drawn; with no regard to actual geography for the simplicity of the map as a whole

Minneapolis and Chicago should change places on the world-rail-map to be more accurate.

Well I guess tehfix0r's confusion stems from the fact that Australian cities do not have a proper subway system, and is why he/she didn't get the inherit joke of the geographically compromised map.
For instance the London Tube map is wildly out of scale, and makes understanding London's layout very difficult.
I would suggest in future that you be a little less quick to judge others, tehfix0r. In accusing others of being fools, you brutally revealed your own ignorance...

What do you mean that Minneapolis and Chicago should change places? I always go from Detroit to Chicago via Minneapolis!

Maybe that explains why Northwest airlines is in such great financial shape.
