That a part of Canada is South of Detroit is actually true. Just weird.

 

Of course Palin never said it but rather noted that there were places Russia was visible from Alaska.  Well duh? That is, of course, true and also not surprising given the geography.

 

Canada is also visible from Alaska, not just looking South from Detroit. But the latter is a fact that boggled my mind.

I don't think so. 

 

Bangor, ME - 44.808147

 

Rome, IT - 41.902782

 

Even Boston is further North - 42.361145

Yep, It's a fake fact! Good catch.

Still amazing how most of Europe is pretty far North. Even Venice, Italy is further North than Bangor, Maine.

That's why smart people like you and I visit Maine and most of Europe in the Summer, and then ride out the grueling SoCal winters at the beach :D

 

Although one of my friends swears up and down I need to take the wife and kid to Tallinn, Estonia for Xmas...she says it's like a fairy tale.

What is really gross is when it came time to sign the contract, the contractors wife asked if I was told there was a 7.5% fee for using a credit card. 

 

I said that I wasn't told that and I wasn't sure I wanted to proceed. She then said she would wave the fee.

 

This gutter bill will make short work of the 6k spend on the Hyatt card... on to the next SUB.
