I’ve Always Been Interested In How Maps Took Part In Shaping Our Understanding Of The World

So these series of maps of Europe—separated by things like religious majorities, GDP per capita, children well-beingness, and frequency of people with fair eyes—is definitely worthy of our coverage.

One interesting observation: these two maps show how some countries allow you to drink alcohol at a much younger age than when you are allowed to purchase them. For instance, in Iceland, you can drink legally (I’m going to assume “legally” to mean “in public setting”) at any age, but must be 18–20 years old to buy.

Waitaminute. How does that work?

Good night.
