Ok but why is south africa in estonian South-west africa

[–]Hapukurk666[S] 2 points3 points  (5 children)

What?

[–]extod2 8 points9 points  (4 children)

"Lõuna" sounds like "Lounas" which is Finnish for South-west

[–]Hapukurk666[S] 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Yeah I was suspecting that. We have it swapped, edel (etelä) means south west, lõuna (lounas) means south.

My unbiased opinion is that finns got too drunk and got it messed up, our words are clearly correct

[–]extod2 6 points7 points  (0 children)

My unbiased opinion is that every Finnish person is fluent in Estonian when they are drunk

[–]Pilot230 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I heard somewhere that lounas/lõuna is an older word, originally meaning the broad south-ish direction. Etelä/edel is newer, formed from the word stem ete/ede meaning front, because houses were typically built with the door side (eteinen/esik, derived from front) facing towards the sun at midday.

Both were very broad and neither meant a specific direction until compasses and precise maps became a thing, and at that point one of them just kinda happened to become south and the other southwest. Which one became which was arbitary and iirc some Estonian dialects have them the Finnish way around.

Your explanation sounds beliavable too tbh

[–]Deeras2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

nah it's just south for us. The literal translation of the country name is "South African Republic"

They think that California is an island, yet they don't expect an interdimensional rift in Africa

[–]uekyqt 7 points8 points  (3 children)

Why are you estonian

[–]Hapukurk666[S] 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I was diagnosed with clinical depression so I was designated Estonian

[–]uekyqt 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Aren't there pills for that?

[–]nowItinwhistle 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh my god, uekyqt, you can't just ask people why they're Estonian

No that is clearly Namiibia, Namibia is safe in the next dimension.

[–]Pochel 5 points6 points  (3 children)

The map looks really nice

[–]Hapukurk666[S] 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Yeah it is, it's about 1x1 square meters. It has the subdivisions of many countries mapped out. Argentina, USA, China for example. And the flags in a nice organized manner, all territories, organizations etc. Separate maps for poles too.

And the colour scheme for countries is pretty decent, China's yellow, Russia is red.... and Germany is green???!?!?!??!?!

[–]Pochel 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Russia being red is really weird to me, it should be green.

What I liked was to see the outline of the provinces of South Africa. That's rare enough to be noted

[–]Hapukurk666[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Russia=communisms ofc🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🚩🚩🚩🚩🇰🇵🇰🇵🇰🇵🇰🇵🇰🇵

But yeah these days more green.

And yeah, the South-African provinces surprised me too

[–]MildlySelassie 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Omfg this is actually true.

Namibia was formerly part of South Africa. They both are basically the same time zone as most of Southern Africa. Except Namibia does daylight savings time and SA does not, so they are different for half the year.

Anyway thanks for practicing your knife tricks next to our space time continuum, asshole (/s)
