Mirror Universe?

Might be a stupid question, but if a magnetised needle pointed South instead of North, would our map of the World look like this?

A magnetised needle doesn't just point north, it points both north and south at the same time. Because you cannot have a north magnetic pole (in general terms) without also having a south. So it wouldn't really make a difference.
It's not trolling, it's just satire.

Does everyone in that other universe have a goatee?

Because I'd be kind of pissed if my wife had a goatee.  Maybe that's why they're all evil.

No, all the men have goatees and all the women are dressed in 1960s clothes with weird hair, and powered gogo boots. Come to think of it, maybe they aren't the evil ones.

Of course they don't. The Women have that Amish "Beard but no 'tache" thing going on. But that's not why they're evil.

If he denounced his true polarity, turned his back on it, and successfully said unto the South, "Be thou mine North"
Would his right / left mirror reflection thing sort itself out? Because that bothers me a bit, re; East and West.

You can't blame him for that, it wasn't his fault. Not on reflection.

Aren't maps orientated the way they are because the first people who were drawing them were the Europeans and everyone likes being on top?

Also there's an awful lot more habitable landmass north of the equator, so odds are pretty good any dominant culture would have started out from that half of the planet.

Didn't have you pegged as quite so much of a disciplinarian Twid, but fair play.  :lulz:

That sounds like a tight ship you're running there, close to the wind too. Just remember to overhaul afore you strike 3 fathoms on the ebb, or you'll scuttle her on the reef. Twitch her in on the jibs, then anchor in the lee of that sinking ferry. Then you can ride out on the first swell of the flood, and miss the rip at half tide.
As to which way's West, jury's still out on that one, but North's down that way. 180 degrees from whichever way the penguins are coming from. No, that's a Guillemot. Penguins are bigger, and more dangerous.

I knew a bloke with a 40 a day pun habit once. He was in a right mess. But he was caught, bang to rights, trying to pass a similie based rhyming limerick off as proper metaphor. By an armed infinitive splitter's Snatch Squad! In front of his old Ma too.

I know that many say a pun is the lowest form of humor, but they crack me up anyway.
