Mercator projection - a projection of a map of the world onto a cylinder in such a way that all the parallels of latitude have the same length as the equator, used especially for marine charts and certain climatological maps.

 

The map she's holding up isn't he result of some grand conspiracy to "trick people".  It's made that way because it makes navigation easier.

 

The map also doesn't show the equator at North America, she just fucking asserted that out of her ass.

 

The equator is clearly in the middle of the map.

Its just difficult to display the surface of a sphere (earth) on a flat map..things get distorted the further north or south you go from the equator

Mapping a sphere into 2D is a conspiracy against the 3rd world, obviously

Sphere ???? surely not, 

 

The Earth is a flat disc, I have seen it explained on Youtube so it must be a fact.
