For all the gamers who love the classic arcade games, here’s a map to guide your Pac-Man efforts. Darker areas are considered more dangerous, as you have a farther distance to travel before reaching an intersection. The lower half of the board is generally considered more difficult to clear, particularly the bottom row, where it is easy to be trapped by ghosts on either side.
There are a couple caveats/glitches, which affect this map. One is that there are four intersections (blue outline) where the ghosts cannot turn upward in scatter and chase modes.  Only when frightened can they turn upward at these intersections. There is also the infamous safe spot (hiding spot), outlined in green, where you can sit indefinitely without being touched assuming the ghosts didn’t see you move there.
Happy gaming!

These maps show the density of submarine communications cables around the world. The top map displays unweighted line density, while the bottom has been weighted by bandwidth (e.g., Gbps).
The data come from Greg Mahlknecht’s website (see link below). He states that the accuracy of the layout varies, as he was able to obtain exact routes for some cables, but other routes are schematic depictions based on landings. In addition, he generally excludes cables below 1 Gbps. It should also be noted that some of these cables are defunct, or are not yet activated. So these maps should be considered generalizations of global submarine communications; they are not exact, but provide an overall sense of the layout.

Dance there upon the shore;
What need have you to care
For wind or water’s roar?
And tumble out your hair
That the salt drops have wet;
Being young you have not known
The fool’s triumph, nor yet
Love lost as soon as won,
Nor the best labourer dead
And all the sheaves to bind.
What need have you to dread
The monstrous crying of wind?

To a Child Dancing in the Wind
W.B. Yeats

Iseult Gonne (6 August 1894 – 22 March 1954) was conceived in the mausoleum of her late brother in an attempt by her parents to reincarnate their dead, still adored infant son. She is remembered in history as a muse and love interest of Yeats and the inspiration for his poem ‘To a Child Dancing in the Wind’ among others.
