Instead, they’ll be taking this cartophile’s dream to schools, to teach kids about the physical and economic reasons for various city locations, and about where certain types of foods are produced on the continent — which is fantastic, because I’m pretty sure most people my age couldn’t tell you anything about either of those topics.

National Geographic says it’s for grades K-8, but if they could make an exception just for me, I promise not to get in the way of anyone — as long as I get to somersault from L.A. to New York without being interrupted.
