How Globes Are Made

Here is a fascinating video that explains in detail how the Globes we found in our classrooms and in old lecture halls were made. And I do believe that this clip is from an episode of a show on Discovery Channel called "How It's Made".

I <3 that show. Also, unless the narrator has changed, I'm pretty sure that's the Canadian version. The U.S. version has a male narrator, and each show focuses on manufacturers located in their respective countries.

Every time I see a globe in a science-shop, antique-shop, or discount-home-store, I notice that it is either north-pole down or a slight movement from its precarious balance causes gravity to take it north-pole down. I find this aesthetically unpleasing, because I would like a globe that has its text upright in its at-rest position, and one that will stay in whatever position I leave it in.
I cannot understand why this is so.
