There are only 2 countries in the world
that are "doubly landlocked".
In other words, neither they nor any of
their surrounding countries have any coastline.
Can you name them ?

I can now...

You could get a whole round of pub quiz questions out of this

Much more fascinating is how they measured the lengths of coastlines - of countries with a coastline.

For those of you who think I am writing nonsense, how small does a cove have to be before it is excluded from the measurement... or the perimiter of a particularly large rock... or the perimeter of a rather smaller rock or a rock pool.

And wouldn't the length be totally different when the tide is out from when it is in?

A full fifty-six minutes to move this light entertainment stuff out of the SE1 forum to the oblivion of the unloved chatter forum!

We had only thirty-four minutes to swap minced lamb recipes before James swooped last time. Are standards slipping?

T.L.M.J-J, this reminds me of when under the 'fluence....( booze one!) arguments could be guarenteed if we discussed what country we would reached if we dug straight down from London... most people said australia..

long arguments would ensue....a ball would be dug out from under the stairs, a Play People toy would be sellotaped on it by its feet, some people did not seem to understand that up and down were relative.....

depending if the play people stayed put the answers were variable,
one day I'm gonna get drunk and get that ball out!

I know I've probably told you that before!

If you did dig straight down, how many congestion charge zones would you pass through? See what happens, phoney, ask one simpl question, and it could go on all night. Where is Sea Level, When the tide is in or out, or when the water is calm or choppy?

What happens if they take out all the oil beneath the see and we burn it all up - will the world get lighter - what happens if everyone is creamated - does the world get smaller and lighter - if the continents move farther apart - do we bump into the ones the other side - I don't know - at 2.31 and after a dram or to - I just wonder.

All this correspondence is fascinating, but what I would like to knoiw is THE ANSWER.

Many thanks Hilary
