In the summer of 2012, high school senior Zak Zeibel was asked to create “a piece of art that would reveal something unseen”. To wit:

Ziebell approached 29 strangers on the University of Michigan’s campus, handed them a pen and half a sheet of paper, and asked them, on the spot, to draw a map of the world. Ziebell, who recently posted his findings to Reddit, then completed the task himself and digitally merged the 30 maps into one image, overlaying the composite drawing with satellite data.

      Clearly they haven’t picked up the Broadsheet Book Of Unspecified Things That Look Like Ireland. And to their peril.

      Presumably some did but they’ve all drawn it in slightly different locations and then Ireland, Britain and the continent have merged into one.

      Or else it’s a globalist conspiracy.
