    There were whole areas of land populated only by people named Alan.
    Must have been terribly confusing.



    Especially for the men.

    How the fuck can the World have an Eastern Hemisphere, it spins on it's axis.

    There's a Northern Hemisphere and a Southern Hemisphere.

    Hemisphere- half of a sphere.
    It has North ,South ,East and West halves of course.

    How can it have an East and West half if it's spinning, that's mad talk. It can have a North and South because those halves are constant.

    Don't blame me.I'm just a mindless drone who follows the masses.
    East/West are divided at the Prime Meridian and the International Date Line.
    And true it's a bit arbitrary.

    It's totally arbitrary and meaningless.

    Oh and I'm blaming you. Always blame the messenger, as the old adage goes.
