It is indeed a small world, Gord! I had sent SkiprJohn a PM an hour or so ago, telling him that his mention of South Point had brought to mind a riddle that a clever person can use to win a bar bet.
The riddle is "What US states are the farthest north, south, east and west?"
Almost no one in the US, let alone anywhere else, knows that the answers are:
South: Hawai'i - North: Alaska - West: Alaska - East: Alaska
This is because the Aleutian Island chain stretches across the International Date Line, the arbitrary line separating east and west. It doesn't surprise me at all that you not only know that, Gord, you can give the lat/lon co-ordinates, as well!
Of course, now John can't so easily take advantage of his mates at the yacht club bar, but I'll bet everyone who reads this board will be using this riddle on their friends and families.
