Trivia Question.....

Fri Jun 28, 2002 3:38 am

Where are you....

If you go one mile due south, ten miles due east and, then one mile due north... and end up exactly where you started?

The only place I can think of is the North Pole.

Or a planet with a 10 km circumference... In this case you could start anywhere one mile north of the equator  Smile

There's a more veiled version of this that I've always loved because the question asked has nothing to do with geography.

A hunter leaves his camp, goes 1m south, 10 miles east, shoots a bear, and returns 1 mile north to his camp- What color is the bear?

Can you go East from the north pole? Every direction would be south, right?

I guess it would have to be the north/south pole.

You can't go south from the south pole Beefmoney. Also note that it is first 1 mile south, then east.

Perhaps and I think were a bit soft, I think that Hurricane and Qantas744 knew exactly that it is the north pole.

Now for a tougher one. How far is up?
