Clearly us Southerner's aren't friendly enough because if you get directions from New York to London, you swim right past England, into France and then through the Channel Tunnel.

Hehe, while we're on the subject (and for those that don't know), as Google have google maps of earth, they also have maps of the moon - http://moon.google.com. Surprisingly high res detail when you zoom in.

this post triggered me to install google earth, pretty cool program. There are all kinds of things to look at a lot faster than using the web version. What a way to waste a couple of hours lol.
