Yes, it's true. A globe is a three-dimensional representation of the earth. It provides a way to view the earth as it sits in space. Because the earth is round, we can see only one-half of it at a time. Globes are not always practical because they are not easily portable. And Because you can't display 3D surfaces perfectly in two dimensions, distortions always occur. For example, map projections distort distance, direction, scale, and area.

You literally believe that Earth is flat and claim that i'm mistaken? Schools in Europe teach that Earth is not flat they are mistaken then? So you agree that education in Europe is not good? you are getting lost in the argument itself. Either you admit you are wrong about the earth being flat or you agree that education in Europe is not good. You are so dumb that you don't know Homo sapiens is literally a specie of animal. 1- You studied in Europe 2- "NASA lying to us even in the false rounded earth smh" There's no way you received a good education if you don't know how 2D maps are made or believe that Earth is flat. Fact. If you disagree with me and claim that education in europe is really good then you admit that you are not smart and have not learned anything in these good institutions and schools. Choose.

That is a mercator projection and it's "the best" we've got in terms of usefulness. Yes it stretches everything but it preserves the shapes and angles. Also, it's rectangular and the latitude and longitude lines are straight and perpendicular to each other. You can make more accurate (in terms of sizes of countries/areas) projections but then you lose other properties.

It is true, the further away a country is from the equator, the more distorted does it get on a flat map. It is impossible to not distort the globe while projecting it on a flat space, hence various projection methods were invented. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercator_projectio..

ofc it is... i learned that with 8 years old lol... Every map and 2D cartographic projection of the real world 3D theres distortions... there are different types of maps that distort in different ways, cylindrical, conical, azimuthal... this for example is the most known map because it favors northern countries like " bigger" reinforcing the importance they had at the time of the creation of the maps.

On a 2D projection of the Earth's surface (Mercator projection), the general rule is that the further you go from the equator, the more distortion there is in the size of countries.
