And Nobody Wrote ?

Too much Christmas cheer ? Asleep at the switch ? Just figured I couldn’t make a mistake ?

The North Pole is at 90 degrees North Latitude. Not zero.

0000/0000 is somewhere west of Africa on the Equator. I’ve known that ever since Cap’n Andy told me the story about plugging all “zeros” into the INS (Inertial Navigation System) just to see what it would do.

I’m going back to drowning my sorrows in Margaritas.
