Anyway, until my "real" post tomorrow, here's a little something I discovered a while back on Google maps. Time to get interactive:
1. Go to Google Maps.
2. Click on "Get Directions".
3. In A, type: "Archdale VIC"
4. In B, type: "Carolina Beach, N Carolina, USA"
5. Click on "Get Directions".
Voilà! Driving to the USA from Australia is possible! Google says so. It's all there plain and simple, step by step. Even better, each step is numbered. Take step 41 for example:
At the roundabout, take the 3rd exit onto Myilly Tce.
No problem! Too easy, just like the next step:
Turn left to stay on Myilly Tce.
C'mon, give me a challenge!
Kayak across the Pacific Ocean.
...for 5,404 km
Who in their right mind would kayak across the freakin' Pacific Ocean?
What I love is the next step after you've supposedly just casually kayaked across the Pacific with a laptop balanced across your knees:
Seriously, could you be more vague? I mean, I just kayaked 5,404 km and all you tell me on the other side is "turn right"? And turn right in what? I'm pretty sure I ditched my car back in Australia for a kayak.
Oh well, at least I'm immune to swine flu.
