Well, for the French territory question I specified a point of origin, Cape Henry, for the discussion.
For the E, W, N & S I didn’t specify anything. So, do you want to use Bermuda, Kansas City, Las Vegas, London, or whatever? Seems that Longitude is generally accepted and certainly well know on this forum.
What would you suggest as a Point of Reference, or Origination, for that question? If we’re in Los Angeles and I ask which is further west, Tokyo or London, wouldn’t it be obvious that Tokyo is closer to the west, but London is closer going east…
BTW, I’ve won a LOT of beers, but perhaps partially because the ejeets were too ignorant to argue the point. And free beers taste great!!!
