Borders are a concept that enter the news much too often. Deadly wars are fought over them in places such as India and Pakistan, Israel and Palestine. In the U.S. there is a country – wide debate over what should happen to the borders, who should be allowed to cross and who should be allowed to stay. One thing about borders that is not in the news, however, is the amazing arbitrary nature of choosing borders, and the silliness of piecing these borders together.
