What are we looking at here?

I built this back in 2010 and will update it for #Brazil2014. This data visualization is accomplished using html5, css3, Google Fonts, javascript, jQuery and by viewing it in a modern web browser. If you are using internet explorer 9 or earlier all you'll see is an unordered list, womp, womp. I learned a great deal about the html5 canvas element, css3 transitions, javascript, jquery, national flags, and the FIFA World Cup by working on this build.

What happened in 1942 and 1946?

World War 2 prevented the World Cup from being played.
