god damn this is so difficult to grasp, sometimes I have to remember map projections are a thing.

thetruesize.com is a pretty fun tool then. allows you to move countries around a map and scales them to match the distortion a Mercator makes.

this is actually how I met the wife.

Back then I was trolling my good buddy Lange and using his face as my avatar. She recognized me(him) at a mall and approached him and they chatted for awhile. Afterwards she messaged me on my page at tf2mingle.com and explained what happened and how embarrassed she was and that she was still a huge fan of mine and couldn't wait to see all the great things I would accomplish on flame_idiot. We kept chatting and things were going well but I had to spill the beans about not being as handsome as Lange. I sent her a pic and she was a bit shocked and more than a little disappointed. She almost backed out of our first meeting until I promised to spend thousands of hours in a newly created mod for TF2 called SOAP DM and become one of the most mediocre invite scout the world has ever seen. Jackpot. She had a huge thing for scout mains and even though I didn't have a scout unusual at the time, the prospect of one day seeing me carried to 3rd place in Dallas by Seagull and Zbryan was enough to keep her interested.

You forgot Alaska (and Hawaii, but they only contribute coconuts)

EDIT: Couldn't figure out that map thing to find a comparison of AK to Australia, so here's one of AK compared to the rest

Not exactly the same thing but a few years ago I noticed that Deer was friends with an irl friend of mine, and as it turned out he went to the same high school as me but graduated the year before I was a freshman. Last year I saw him at a school play and the graduation ceremony, during which his mom actually gave a big speech. He knew a few of my friends from the grade above mine and it was pretty funny having to use his real name instead of his online alias when talking with them.

Not the same thing at all, but I wore my FROYO shirt to my high school today and some freshman asked if I play tf2. I said yeah, and that this is my team, gesturing towards my shirt. He told me he was a spy main and walked away.

Some guy at the airport asked if I worked for android since I had my froyo shirt on at the time. Other than that, nope, not once.

Not invite but there was a guy who asked a little too specific of questions a few years back in high school. Turns out I had him added and I didnt even know that I helped him out in learning jump basics forever ago. We were pretty good buds but then he moved out of state. Still see him on jump sometimes.

I think you got recognized twice at evo. The first time we were in an elevator, and some dude walked in and said "Oh hey Fragile. Hey Shrugger". Then he looked at me for a sec to see if I was someone he knew, decided I was not, and continued talking to you two.

When I first got into competitive TF2 I was in the Team Colonslash mumble when it was just a very small team and a community of a few extra people and I was friends with Jackkai who was in that Mumble often. One day I was talking to him about how my day went and mentioned I went to a cafe called Scrumptious before college, and it turned out that his Dad owned the chain so he asked me where I lived. Turned out he was a fair few years younger than me and went to my school. I knew him as this fat curly haired kid that got bullied once and twatted some kid in the face. He lives like a 5 minute walk away and now he's hench. Weird that such a tiny community happened to have a guy that was so close ahha.

Not invite, I think, I see this guy at a store around where I live sometimes and he is usually wearing a froyo hoodie. I never bothered him but I'm kind of curious if it's anyone I've heard of.

The other week I was in Sideshow's twitch stream chat and someone mentioned a city near where I live. I started talking to 2 other people and it turns out David The Win went to the college I'm at now but left a few years ago.

I added the other guy who also went to my college and I found out he's in my Maths class, I've just never spoken to him much before and he plays mid ETF2L. So weird that we were in the chat at the same time and he just happened to mention where we live.

I was on a date and the person recognized my steam username (he had a tf2 background on his desktop so i brought up the videogame) because i was on a team with the stabbystabby which was the first red flag. He had a lot of mlp stuff around his apartment which was the 2nd red flag. Long story short all tf2 got me was a hoofjob.

Not invite but there are a couple of people at school who play TF2 and have played on TF2C. If I remember correctly they recognised me when I said I was a mod.
Also, LessThanThree goes to my school and I met Mike in the uni down the road.
