Here's our Globe...

looks nice but is probably quite incorrect from a geographer's point. The Harad looks quite out of shape- I wonder what we did wrong...

We are still undeveloped as long as we don´t realize, that all our science is still descriptive, and than beyond that description lies a whole new world we just haven´t even started to fully understand.

It looks sweet that :) Distortion is inevitable unless you reproject your map. I'm not an expert in projections though...and anyway, at the end of the day, you just want to minimise your distortion. But you might have a rationale for who drew the map and what projections they would have access to to.
