Missing Countries

MissingCountries.jpg

Well, this is a shocker, and frankly, it annoys me. I visited my FlagCounter page to check out which places  I’m missing from the map, and as you can see, there are many that have yet to produce blog visitors. I’m tempted to visit some of these countries only to log on from an Internet cafe, and visit my blog. That will not be an option in some of these places, but I have a hard time believing there are no giantess or shrunken-man fans in Sierra Leone. And I know the Pope has to be curious. ¿No es verdad, sumo pontífice? ¿Acaso no es cierto que a usted le apetecen las imágenes de mujeres gigantes? Y estoy más que segura que algunos de sus cardenales sueñan con hombrecitos pequeños. No me queda la menor duda.

DPKR is not a mystery, of course. I can only imagine what life might have been for me, had I been born there. I’d be limited to my thoughts, which, given my nature, might have been impossible to squelch with venomous ideology. Just look at what I had to hear everyday when growing up, and I still emerged from that quagmire of confounding religiosity and misogyny, more or less intact. More less than more, if I’m to be completely honest. I still have to battle flashbacks, and the constant hailstorm of familial opinions.

But The Gambia, or Timor-Leste, which sound more like places in Middle-earth than names of countries? I don’t believe for a second there aren’t any of my people there. So, since I’m very busy right not (not blogging, of course – that’s a complete waste of time), I’m going to have to ask you to drop everything you are doing, go visit one or more of these countries, and pop by my blog from there, so I can add one or more of these flags to my counter. There’s a good reader.

  1. I feel bad for all the shrunken men and giantesses who live in countries that don’t let them freely search the internet to find out they’re not alone.

    • I do as well. I’m not sure how agonizing it might have been for me to be rendered unable to seek out answers all those years ago, when my shrinking-man fantasies increased in intensity and “severity”.

  2. This list reminds me of a Customs of Other Lands book I had as a kid. Every week my mom would pick up new inserts, like large postage stamps, that you could paste in. One was a picture of a woman with basket balanced on her head! Cool idea; maybe some day you’ll ‘collect’ all 52. 😉

    • That’s actually the reason I took a screen capture of all missing countries. As I collect them, I can blog about it, and imagine the circumstances of that addition. In fact, I’m going to check it right now, and see if there are any changes.
