Take that, geospatial relationships.
I misread an advertisement on a bus shelter in Trondheim... it was just a bunch of product-related icons sorted on a few spiraling lines, but at first glance I thought it was a transit map... it gave me an idea. I immediately made my way back to my hostel & sketched it out in the only software I had handy at the moment -- Microsoft Paint (1st draft)
Behold: DC Metro ... in a spiral. It includes the Farragut pairing but passes over a couple more complex details... otherwise I'm pretty sure the general system is there. No station names; I opted to get some extra sleep rather than try and make those fit in aesthetically. They've since been added in the 3rd draft.
