Local Globes Answered

Picture of

Globes are meant to represent entire planets, but what if the world you want to show on them is actually much smaller? Then you can make a Local Globe. Take a map and apply the Photoshop filter Flexify to it and you can make a globe of your own! All right, I'm totally gonna do this and I know exactly what image I want to put on it. Now I just need to find a cheap globe.

Pretty cool!  What happens at the coordinate singularities?  Not to mention the longitudinal junction?

That's where the local hoodies gravitate to.
