    Hah. I was looking at some of the ones that showed the land masses and thinking, “Look, Ma–no lines!” We make all these boundaries up, then kill each other over them as if they’re actually (or ought to be) real.

    How strange we humans are.

    Is it themepack? how can I download them, I don’t see the button that I need,

    btw I’m new to website so I might’ve missed the download button!!

    @Hola Amigo – Right click on the images you like and select to open the download pages for them in new tabs/windows. Once there click the download button on the right side and select the size you want in the opening window from the options menu in the upper right corner (if you are not happy with the auto-sizing feature of DesktopNexus). ^_^
