    Do they mean just the continental US or do they include Hawaii and Alaska?

    I refuse to believe this until I get an answer.
    As far as the credibility goes, Africa doesn`t exist.

    Poor Hawaii and Alaska. Always getting left out.

    Also this picture is an exercise in meaninglessness. As has been said, Africa is a damn continent. Sure we might have some retards who`ve never seen a globe before who don`t know that--but come on! Besides, you could probably comfortably fit Africa and Europe in Asia.

    This is something a retarded publication like USA Today would publish. I expect better from the Times of London.

    Regardless of the fact it is a continent and the others are countries. Africa is still the second largest continent. You can almost fit both Antarctica and South America in it, or Australia, Europe and Antarctica.

    #1 Asia - (44,579,000 sq km) - 30.21%
    #2 Africa - (30,065,000 sq km) - 20.38%
    #3 North America - (24,256,000 sq km) - 16.44%
    #4 South America - (17,819,000 sq km) - 12.08%
    #5 Antarctica - (13,209,000 sq km) - 8.95%
    #6 Europe - (9,938,000 sq km) - 6.74%
    #7 Australia/Oceania - (7,687,000 sq km) - 5.21%

    the British Isles isn`t a country either (I know it is part of Western Europe obviously). I think it was a rather pointless demonstration of how big a continent is.....why I don`t know.
    I was never under any illusion that it was tiny. I know Africa perfectly well so am still bored. :(

    My GOD people, the whole POINT of this was just to show how large the African continent is.

    No one ever said Africa was a COUNTRY.

    And LaMigra77, your comment was ignorant, and totally uncalled for. Why does someone always have to throw racism into discussions here? Oh that`s right... It`s the internet, where you can make foolish comments and not get your ass kicked.

    any message the creator of that image hoped to put out was lost on the fact that you are comparing countries to a continent. find countries that are similar in size from europe and africa and then compare them to send a message.

    i want to see a cookie commercial were someone has a empty chips ahoy container thing(whatever you call the plastic tray and wrapper cookies come in...) and starts putting oreos in it till its full then says oreos are over prices cause more oreos sold last year but you can fit a pack and a half in the chips ahoy container.. makes no sense at all.

    those might be made by the same company but it would still be a funny comparison to this.
