*NEWS FLASH* Just cause you dont know something doesn't mean the world was keeping it a secret. Africa is big. Who cares. On a semi-related note I work in a pasta factory and my last partner was from Nigeria. He used to say "I love the Heat Tim! Bring it on!". Then when it got to be 125 up in that bi*ch he would turn to me and say "Its not this hot in Africa Tim! I dont like it" LMAO

they weren't hiding or lying to anyone. Everyone should know a globe is not drawn to scale. How is it possible people didn't know this?

I have to question the validity of that statement. 60% of Africa is covered by drylands and deserts and they are losing forests at twice the rate of the rest of the world. what do we get from there that we don't get elsewhere? Not saying you are wrong, I'm asking cuz i dont know.

wiki
Africa has a large quantity of natural resources including oil, diamonds, gold, iron, cobalt, uranium, copper, bauxite, silver, petroleum and cacao beans, but also woods and tropical fruits. Much of its natural resources are undiscovered or barely harnessed. Having a low human density, for a long period of time Africa has been colonized by more dynamic groups, exploiting African resources. Some economists[who?] have talked about the 'scourge of raw materials', large quantities of rare raw materials putting Africa under heavy pressures and tensions, leading to wars and slow development. Despite these abundance of natural resources, claims suggest that many Western nations like the United States, Canada, France and the United Kingdom as well as emerging economic powerhouses like China often exploit Africa's natural resources today, causing most of the value and money from the natural resources to go to the West rather than Africa, further causing the poverty in Africa.
