Map of the Known Universe

Map of the Universe

I am, alas, famed for my lack of map reading capabilities and this is a secret shame that utterly emasculates me in any scenario where I am charged with navigating either myself or others from point A to point B. I’ve been utterly lost in almost every city I’ve ever visited, ranging from Dublin to Chicago, and my stock response for when I get lost is to gravitate towards the largest building in the city and take things from there. This is, admittedly, not the manliest of navigatory methods but it is yet to steer me wrong so I have persisted with it throughout my entire manhood (I obviously cried up until the age of 18 when lost and waited for my mum to collect me but that doesn’t fly in adulthood. Apparently). Well, I’ve decided that as I’m not content to continue with my BBPS (Big Building Positioning System) any longer and, as is my way, I’ll be biting off more than I can chew with the rather daunting but undeniably fantastical Map Of The Known Universe. Just because I’ve tried and failed to navigate between Sheffield and Leeds (for those not from the UK or, indeed the north of the UK – this is a distance of around 15 miles and a straight line) doesn’t mean that I’ll fail to work my way around the entire universe.

Update: The known universe doesn’t have any big buildings for me to use as a reference point – thusly, leaving me too far outside of my comfort zone and I’ve decided that those moon men can keep their universe. I don’t want to see it.

Deep space hazards?! Whaaaaaaaaaat? – another reason to leave outer space to the moon men.
