    Could it be something to do with horses again? Just to pull our collective leg?

    Mongolia and Kazakhstan being represented certainly makes me suspicious.

    It might. Afaik Romania has a lot of level ground.

    Yes :)

    It could be about local transportation in some less-developed parts of countries. Although i would suspect Russia, due to its massive Asian part, would have been in such a map too.

    Argentina surely had (has?) the Gaucho, local peasants (mostly indians) who used horses for transportation and lived outside of the cities.

    @Goodfella: I just painted over the map in page#1. I just forgot to delete the extra one.

    @Borachio (1): Hmmm, no, an 'Bilbo' is a silly name for a cat. 'Taki' is a much better one. I'm very cuddly.

    @Yeekim (1): I'm a devious fellow who likes to pull people's legs. But I've yet to post a map of the US with the answer being 'countries #1'.

    And yes it's to do with a 'joke option'. I believe I've posted on this… scandalous issue before.

    @Kyriakos & Yeekim: level ground? I'm not sure it has to do with the levelness of ground.

    @Borachio (2): I don't know what you're talking about. Please explain.

    You should have shaded the UK a special colour to account for all the horse meat lasagnes.

    Places weighted by the likelihood of being named the centre of the world?

    Let's just say it is a bit less flattering than that :mischief:

    Ok, i will give you an important hint: it is about something easier to find on the internet. In fact the map is entirely internet-based :)

    No, but you got the porn part right... It does not have to do with development, but with popularity.

    :blush:

    It is not enough as an answer though.

    I doubt they care for that in New Zealand ;)

    Come to think of it, New Zealand is a good clue on the map :/

    (ps i am starting to think this map was not a good idea to link to...)

    Then Jerusalem is missing since many maps had it as the centre of the world.

    I think i will take the map down, for what it is worth it was a google search map, hosted by google, about some type of porn (lets leave it at that...).

    I will not post a new map in its place since it was my fault this cannot work :) So if you have a more savoury map, go and post it :)
