Stereoscopic view of the North Pole (without ice) based on images from GoogleEarth. Being used to the standard map projections makes you forget that the shortest distance between Europe/Asia and North America is over the North Pole. Sadly, this view of the North Pole without sea ice may become a reality as Global Warning returns the climate to something like the late Permian period.
