In attempting to give Trump the election, Fox News gave the wrong part of Michigan to Canada.

I think that if you’re on a Texas border it’s the furthest you could go before the furthest point of Texas to you is a bigger distance.

Texas may be big but you could fit Texas into Alaska two times. As Michelle Shocked sang "Texas always seems so big but you know you're in the largest State in the Union when you're anchored down in Anchorage...".

Here's a related one, focussing on Doggerland, now the relatively shallow Dogger Bank in the North Sea. The middle image shows the western edge of the Ancylus Lake. It also shows the relatively little lake south of Doggerland that the Thames, Rhine, and other major rivers flowed into. (Or so, I understood anyway; in this particular image, it seems its outlet was a tributary of the Rhine.) Its route to the sea was via the British channel, and major flooding events (I guess related to the melting glaciers) basically ripped that channel into its current size and shape around 10000 years ago (give or take a millennium).
