    I see Cory already got to the headline, making all subsequent readers puzzle over the ‘first!’ comments.

    But surely the map is not the territory? Or is it now much easier to get to first base, given that you could use grid references?

    WWII airmen were issued silk maps for when they parachuted to safety from their disabled aircraft.  Those would make nice dresses!

    What a terrible waste of a perfectly good map.  Next up: t-shirts made of old Picasso and Monet paintings.

       I’m holding out for Bermuda shorts made from the Bayeux Tapestry.

         I’m holding out for pants made out of prehistoric cave paintings.

        I bet there’s a few britons who read this and are snickering especially loud.
