But good news for the residents of India and Bangladesh - the two nations have finally sorted out their psychedelic border.

That border gore is appalling.

I, for one, am sad to lose the world's most fractal, archipelagic borders.

Jesus Christ, that was atrocious. Glad to see they are working to fix it.

Google Earth shows that it's basically just a field.

Some reporter actually went there and found that the field is owned by a Bangladeshi guy and it's already de facto Bangladesh.

Are there any other second-order enclaves remaining besides the seven Dutch second-order enclaves of Baarle-Nassau that are within Baarle-Hertog?

Cool videos.

I was aware that the Lake of the Woods had an exclave, but I don't think I had ever heard of Point Roberts, Washington.

I had to laugh at the Belgian guy who discovered his front door was actually in the Netherlands.  I'm not sure it would have occurred to me to move my front door.

I also liked the Kiribati explanation in the video  Strangest Time Zones of the World (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uW6QqcmCfm8).
