Dad Finds Map That His Teen Daughter Is 'Working On', And Some Of The New Additions Are Hilariously Alarming

The children are our future, as they say.

And in some cases, they're up to some truly absurdist genius.

Case in point: NBC Sports writer Craig Calcaterra's 16-year-old daughter Anna.


Calcaterra recently discovered his daughter is either a skilled comedian, a mad genius, or maybe both—and will definitely be taking over the world one day. She's been working on a map that fundamentally reshapes the Western hemisphere, triggers multiple wars and also gives us a second Ohio, and it is... well, it's something.

As Calcaterra relayed on Twitter, it all began with the simplest of parental questions: "Got any homework?"

And well...

Just your average map, just a fun doodle from a teenager's sketchbook.

Until you look closer and do the reading...

Honestly, it's hard to discern whether Calcaterra's daughter needs to be stopped because she's using her genius for evil, or if she's the leader we've all been waiting for. Who's to say?

Because a lot of her proposals seem totally reasonable.

Like combining Vermont and New Hampshire just makes sense. So does melding the Dakotas.

Less clutter.

And swapping the Virginias seems fair.

West Virginia's been in Virginia's shadow all this time, so why not switch it around and let West Virginia have a chance to shine?

Giphy

And letting Florida secede, well... we can probably all get behind that.

It's already its own world in practice anyway.

Giphy

But increasing the size of both Texas and Idaho—such that it takes over not just the middle of the US but a huge swath of Canada too? By unanimous vote‽‽

Utter madness.

And not just because Oklahoma loses its cute panhandle in the process.

Giphy

And this whole Long Chile thing is... it's just...

Giphy

And A SECOND OHIO?

We have enough on our hands with the first one.

Giphy

Anyway, as you might expect, folks on Twitter had lots to say about Anna's new world order.





The Ohio thing definitely raised some eyebrows.




As did Canada's seeming acquiescence to Anna's imperialism.



And that whole thing about the Dakotas had people scratching their heads...

But Anna herself quickly put this all to rest.

Well, that's that.

Anna is our Queen now and that's the end of it.

Long may she reign over Long Chile and all eastward territories from sea to shining East Virginia, or whatever.

Being horny can lead to some questionable decision-making.

Something happens to the brain when blood is flowing to other regions of the body.

They should discuss this in health class.

It's perfectly normal, but we have to learn how to deal.

Why in this day and age are people still taking nudie pics without triple-checking the recipient?

Why take the gamble?

And half of the time we hit send, mistakes get made.

One minute you're feeling sexy, the next minute grandpa is having a stroke.

Be careful.

There is so much to learn in the world, it's impossible for one person to know absolutely everything there is to know.

But there are certain things, like common phrases and idioms, that everyone seems to use that might be a little embarrassing to not understand until later in life.

While starting a family and having children is a goal that many people have, some do not realize that it's not easy, fun, and loving one-hundred percent of the time. Rather, it's expensive, exhausting, and hard, though it might be worth it in the end.

With this in mind, people shared what they felt were the hardest hurdles of their parenting.
