hmmm......

I was sampling some of Oaxaca''s finest last night and realized that if lines of longitude ran parallel like lines of latitude, we would have an East Pole and a West Pole to go along with the more popular North and South. Would the West Pole be in the Pacific near the Gilbert Islands, or in the Atlantic near Ghana?

PS- please don''t confuse me with the facts

hmmmmmmm.....

The force that dictates the location of the north and south poles is magnetic, 1 of 2 parts to the electro-magnetic spectrum. Thus, we would infer that the perpendicular force be electric. The expectation of the experimental outcome would be that the empirical data suggest the ''poles'' of this force then be the most electrifying and least electrifying places.

My vote goes to Paris... the city of lights for one.

This is my hypothesis and I am sticking to it.

Gee, I think I will send a proposal to the NSF now ))))))))

I believe that with one more bottle of Oaxaca consumed you may have been able to answer your own question. Personally I have NFI but I''m sure the yacht salesman Jeff working for (burr.halpern@annapolis.net) could give you a 400 word answer to your quandary. If not maybe one of his buddies at Burr Halpern could.

I didn''t see any mention of bottled consumables in aasault''s original message. Methinks potential confusion stems more from horticultural origins . . .

The perpendicular force is electric: ladyland.
Be with you.

Oddly, only VIEXILE knew that Oaxaca''s finest was not potable, which could have something to do with the "EXILE" in his screen name. Alas, my plans for an East and West Pole have gone up in smoke....

...up in smoke???...

It''s becoming clearer to me...

Maybe one of the east/west poles is in the so called Bermuda triangle???

Maybe in Delphi in Greece - the Greeks center of the known universe???

After years of trying to remember that the lines are called Parallels of Latitude and Meridians of Longitude, the inquiring mind, smoke hazed or not, wants to really confuse the issue. I have heard, however, that gravity is a myth...''cause the earth sucks! Cheers, Richard.
