Cartography humor.  
I know I haven't mentioned much about my current job since I started a couple of months ago, but I'm working on maps of the local water and sewer systems that are being rebuilt.

Today, I'm adding features showing the areas for which we don't yet have solid data. I have files that show what the original pipes looked like, I have annotations that show what's been demolished, and I've got a file with multiple contradictory proposals for the new pipe system -- but I don't know what's actually there, or what will be there.

I've named the shape file "incognita".

I'm fighting off the temptation to label the regions "hic sunt dracones".
I feel: busybusy

it would be a good visual distraction as you add in sections of the new hidden lab.

Are they dark and twisty passages, very much alike?

Then, author notwithstanding, perhaps you should label them "Hic sunt grues."

Damn you! I just snorted my drink at that one. ;)

I'm sure you've seen this already, but just in case.

Have you seen/heard of this in your work at all?
