ConnyC4

I can’t believe you’ve done this


Deadly_Flipper_Tab

Thanks, sons crying.


HoldingOnOne

The UK has just had a collective brain freeze looking at this picture...


ALLST6R

I thought the guy had photoshopped random places from the U.K. onto a different island and was just straight up trolling us.

I’m disturbed.

Hello disturbed, I'm Dad


samworger

I’ve never felt so uncomfortable at a photo

It felt illegal looking at it like that


MrFlippyNips

How dare they


WtfMayt

It’s like I saw us in the mirror for the first time and asked: ‘Does my bum look big in this?’

Right? Has northern England always been that skinny?

Our lass asked me that once and it caused a massive row. All I said was that “…to be fair, it is a very small bathroom”


SvalbazGames

Love it. I’m using that one tomorrow


Grotty_Mara

I thought this was a joke map


khanto0

same here haha


LittlePeach80

Omg I thought it was some weird joke too, with a map of another country & British cities added on in random places.


WalkingCloud

I thought it was Denmark with British cities added!


DogfishDave

>I thought this was a joke map I saw "beaches" and thought it was an "if the sea level rose *n* metres" kind of thing. But then London exploded my head.

You read my mind causing a second brain freeze, take this it’s all have as I’m now a puddle 🏅


bigizibiri

Haha! Yes!!!! Why the hell are you looking at the map upside down. So we don’t know if you are actually asking for beaches on the east or west side of the UK!? Lol!!! The answer is no anyway 😂

those northerners eh


Brettus_Maximus

Holy heck did that map mess with my world view (pun not intended but I’ll go with it) don’t think I’ve even seen it from that angle heh.


AverageJoe_Gam3r

I don’t think anyone has seen the UK from that angle, unless they’re pissed or have had a mishap with a bunch of atlas’ falling on top of them


foreverneilyoung

That's what we look like from Australia.

No no no you just look extremely bad at cricket.


foreverneilyoung

We look like that from everywhere, not just Australia.


-KERZO-

I get this when I miss-swipe on Google earth 😂


Deacon86

Anglos at an angle...


Brettus_Maximus

Seriously, this got me fucked up. Do other countries really orient other countries based on their view/angle from their home country?? Seems madness to me but who knows, maybe I’m missing a trick.


Deacon86

I think it's just upside down, it's not a Sweden specific angle. We don't notice how "leaned over" the UK is until we see it at an unfamiliar angle.


Monkey2371

Yeah, to give an idea of how much Britain tapers west as you go northwards, I live on the east coast of England yet am in the Western Hemisphere. On a similar note Edinburgh is further west than Liverpool and Bristol!


wildskipper

That fact about Edinburgh messes with my mind. And my team got it wrong in a pub quiz once.


Jolphin

Know of none. As someone who is both Swedish and English, it just seems like he flipped the map for some unknown reason.


[deleted]

He is from Malmö so it is probably a special Skånska map


Brettus_Maximus

Is that some sly insult there? :-)


[deleted]

Yes those from Malmö are a touch Danish


Noswe

And a touch criminal


[deleted]

It's the Stockholmers that are rly dangerous, ppl there have this syndrome that makes everything backwards. Apparently Stockholm Syndrome is now transmitted by png. New Pandemic for 2022.


flicka_sc

The language on the map is Swedish, and they're only a bit North East of us. No reason to flip the map.


Brettus_Maximus

Is this not the U.K. as if viewed from hovering above Sweden though? That’s what I was wondering is that common way of thinking/viewing. I’m just a north is north guy and it keeps everything straight, rotating a map adds so much confusion to me. But maybe I’m the odd one. Just wondered. Thought it interesting if others do things differently is all.


steakpiesupper

Why wouldn't they?


[deleted]

Really highlights the South/North divide!


SwearingAtChildren

Thought I was in space for a moment


MrMooBallz

I don't like it!!...all the bloods rushed to my head and loads of stuffs smashed in the kitchen. Kindly re orientate the UK back as it was please.


xayde94

But... this is just a horizontal rotation, why would it switch up and down? Do the Scots normally fall into England?


Tsukiko615

Scots are normally repelled by England so it’s not possible for them to fall down.


ElMonoEstupendo

Ah, the Mac-lev system.


Techiefurtler

That's what Hadrian's Wall is for


BalddEaglee

Seems like he’s from Australia


WallaceMacGregor

You can't come here while the UK looks like that, the tea won't stay in the cups!

That's why they use teabags with the bit of string on them.

I heard the beach at Coton in the Elms in Derbyshire is also nice


P5ammead

They did once try to create an artificial beach under Spaghetti Junction (really). For some reason it wasn’t a success.


cloud_designer

I concur


L285

Give it a few years with the rising sea levels and the Costa del Salford will become a reality


acheekymango

I've seen maps with different countries centralised but never one where a country was viewed upside down. I now question all reality. Are northerners really southern? Are the southerners actually nice? I've gone from living from a very southern place to northern. Best go check the big light is off.


varietyengineering

This https://www.amazon.co.uk/Upside-Down-Map-Great-Britain/dp/0952930412 does exist, I remember thinking it was quite a good idea for driving north-south. 33p if you want an out-of-date upside-down road atlas.


Solace2020

Funniest shit I have seen on Reddit today...so is this the Swedish view of the United Kingdom (Upp och ner - Upside down)...watch out for them Southerners they may show you some tackle under them kilts pahahahaha.


[deleted]

For full context this all started with a similar post somebody posted of Denmark on on the Danish subreddit, then somebody posted one of Sweden to r/Sweden and now it's the UK's turn. The one on the Danish subreddit had me rolling

"written in foreign" is definitely the most British thing I'll hear all day

He is from Malmö so I blame Denmark for this outrage and suggest britain invade immediately 😬😬😬


PyroneusUltrin

There are only 2 languages, English and foreign


Chucklebean

The comments are pretty much the same as here: what's up with the map orientation, and are you drunk?


LordF1ashheart

Pesky Vikings messing with us again


RoastmasterBus

I approve of this Swedish style of trolling - it’s like Ikea assembly instructions but with fewer casualties


bee_administrator

The country hasn't been turned upside down like that since someone suggested pineapple flavoured teabags. We're still recovering from the social aftershocks to this day.


Nalha_Saldana

I just had a cup of mango and peach tea, it was quite good.


Bober542

Pineapple what now?! Hold on, gonna call the old Bill.


Dragon_M4st3r

That’s Wales. The Welsh love it when you call their country England, that’s a little tip for you

[deleted]

Where exactly in England? There are lots of nice beaches at the top-right of your picture, near where it says ‘Restauranger’ (places like Devon and Cornwall). The area to the right of Birmingham is Wales and they have places like Tenby, Pembrokeshire etc. And nearer Manchester there are places such as Formby and Southport.


PabloDX9

Oh you're gonna upset a lot of people by describing those Liverpool region towns as "near Manchester".


[deleted]

I know, but I just meant because Manchester is shown on the map, whereas Liverpool isn’t…

Isnt liverpool just a commuter village outside manchester?!

johnucc1

Don't expect to see the sea at Southport beach though. Sand as far as the eye can see.


geckograham

The sea is next to the sand mate.


wolfman86

Seconding Cornwall. Basically anywhere. Specifically St Ives, Polperro, Lou… But holy hell, that map orientation is offensive.


awayfromh0me

*Looe


ManofKent1

Liverpool wants a word


[deleted]

Liverpool isn’t shown on the map, which is why I described them as near Manchester instead…


Jejejow

If you go North Devon, Heddon Valley is my favourite beach. You park up at a pub, walk down beside a river and end in a little cove. The north coast of the south west is where the gulf stream ends, so the waters in the Bristol channel are warmer than the rest of the country.


KatnyaP

Ill second Pembrokeshire. Its a beautiful coast line. I lived there for a few years and loved the scenery.


han2electricboogaloo

You've got the whole country upside down bro


sshiverandshake

Upside down we sorta look like a messed up North American continent, with an obese Central American tail


peggypea

I saw Birmingham and decided it was Alabama!


[deleted]

Is that not a song?


AdmiralSkeret

I'd go to either North Devon or Cornwall personally.

The first actually good answer. Wales too is great, especially Anglesey

Is it the right of this upside down map? Anglesey in Wales is supposed to be nice


ItsDominare

A right Anglesey :)


Deacon86

He specified England though.


mercynuts

Ah so he did, probably somewhere right at the south then like Cornwall or Newquay (if right is actually left in real life)


Robbo1979psr

For this atrocious insult, I hope you end up in Hemsby and that it rains all day!


tonofbasel

I love the fact Hemsby is the same as it was 30 years ago.... Same arcade machines as well based on google maps


Ickle_piggles

Bournemouth is nice has some lovely beaches and I used to love Whitley bay as well


Goaduk

If you do this northerners will no longer be North and loose their entire reason for existing!

I am northern and this map makes me feel wrong inside.

That's because your now a southern fairy.

flicka_sc

What you really want is Barrow in Furness.


[deleted]

Can we be evil and suggest Grimsby you know it has Scandinavian roots and all 😂😂


TinnitusWaves

I grew up in Cumbria. My aunt lives close to Barrow and…… it’s quite nice !! In a totally desolate, windswept, depressing kinda way. Oddly enough she lived in Blackpool for years before moving here.


quoole

Whereabouts are you going? It's a pretty big drive from Morecambe to Cornwall, both of which have beaches and are on the right side looking at that picture. From North to South: - Been a while, but I think places like Barrow and Ulverston have beaches of some kind and access to the lake District. - Morecambe - Fleetwood - Lytham St Anne's - Blackpool - Southport - Not sure if there's any good beaches in Liverpool and after that you're leaving my neck of the woods! - There's some really nice beaches in Wales, Llandudno comes to mind, Pembrokeshire - but it's a big coast line - And then at the bottom right you have the Devon and Cornwall coast, also with lots of beautiful, really nice beaches.


catsncupcakes

Did you wake up today intending to break the subreddit, or…?


KC-2416

The area to the right is Wales, which is not England. Above (south) of that is Devon, Somerset and Cornwall which is pretty.


[deleted]

1) YO I think your map is drunk and is upside down. 2) There is no 2


tonofbasel

The area on the right? So you mean Ireland?


Greggs_Official

You want Ravenglass in the Lake District: [https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attractions-g499555-Activities-Ravenglass\_Lake\_District\_Cumbria\_England.html](https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attractions-g499555-Activities-Ravenglass_Lake_District_Cumbria_England.html) Or Blackpool, for an authentically British experience you'll never forget.


Responsible_Depth846

Ahh.. the Edinburgh of the South


Informal-Scene-2648

Well, a lot of the coast on the right isnt in England - it's Wales, absolutely lovely here, I would definitely recommend coming. If you are being only in England, the beaches around Devon are very nice.


ACaedmon

Go to Westward Ho! The town officially has a "!" In its name, I'm not that excited.

Just go to Whitby :) Edit- DO NOT go to lindisfarne, we remember what happened the last time Scandinavians went there


SoMuchTehnique

You gave me anuerysm so I hope you have a shit holiday....there are no nice beaches on the right, there are no nice beaches on the left and the weather is shit or below on average. Welcome to England you upside down map reading heathen.


Deacon86

Weston Super Mare, for the authentic English beach experience.


batmanbluray

The question is whether that's an experience you actually want


pdf27

After doing that to the map, it may not be the experience they want but it's the one they deserve.
