Student redraws US map. Her goal? To drive us mad

Between Anna Calcaterra, the 16-year-old daughter of NBC Sports reporter Craig Calcaterra and, apparently, a aspiring cartographer.

At first glance, it seems almost normal: there is the familiar projection of Florida, the Great Lakes, Mexico and South America.

But look again.

Texas it's too long. Idaho is also. Why? Do not ask.

Alaska was erased as if it sank into the sea. And don't expect to see Wyoming here – Anna doesn't believe the state is real.

The teenager devastated the Western Hemisphere on an inspired and existentially disturbing map that has since illuminated and infuriated hundreds of thousands of Twitter users, inspiring at least two separate Twitter trends.

She told CNN that she was inspired by people who previously tried to label the United States and "failed miserably".

Look now, what used to be Florida Panhandle while crossing the Gulf coasts that previously belonged to Alabama and Louisiana. The goal? To start a second civil war and force Florida to separate. Natch. And if you've ever visited Ohio and loved it so much, I wish there was a according to Ohio to find out, Anna heard you. The Four Corners, once notable for being the point where Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah met, were replaced by an Ohio 2.

Anna refused to elaborate on the purpose of a second Ohio, when requested by CNN. "Does anyone really want to know more about Ohio 2? Nobody wants to hear about Ohio 1," she said.

The sparse state of Wyoming is also missing from this map. Despite harboring the Rocky Mountains and Yellowstone National Park, Anna doubts it is real.

"Nothing against Wyoming, it just doesn't exist," she said. "Having it on the map is like putting Hogwarts or something."

But oh, we don't even touch the rest of the Americas. Anna is actually starting international wars, so the thin strip of South America that used to be Chile is now "Chile Longo" and stretches across the west coast.

In Anna's twisted world, the Chilean-American war resulting from Chile effectively stealing the Pacific Ocean is the catalyst for World War III.

Why the whole war? Anna didn't say. But let's hope Ohio 2 is spared.
