Aw, you guys missed one of the most fantastic globes I have every seen: http://www.msichicago.org/whats-here/exhibits/earth-revealed/

The Earth Revealed Globe at the Chicago Museum Of Science And Industry. It's a giant carbon fiber sphere that they project the earth onto from several different projectors and cycle through a whole series of things such as the evolution of earth, tectonic activity, global climate change activities, etc.

It is suspended on very thin cables so that the impression is that this every active globe floats in mid-air, very much like a Star Wars hologram.

The breastfeeding story just angered people who were genuinely disappointed that the story wasn't about what they hoped it would be, and the lack of pertinent pictures was adding insult to injury.
But at least the protagonists were correct: dad, breast, milk, daughter, boobies.

Now, THIS is a misleading title. Promising us "incredible globes" and instead forcing geography down our throats is just one ugly example of (jail) bait and switch.
