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?
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) could give you a 400 word answer to your quandary. If not maybe one of his buddies at Burr Halpern could.
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.
