As far as the variable of latitude being 110.574 Km @ 0 degrees, and 111.694 Km. @ 90 degrees, averaged to 111.134 Km per Arcdegree Latitude times 180 degrees separation (constant) =
π/180M (Ø) = 20004.12 Km, so far hath He removed our iniquities from us.
Psalm 103:12

Orthograph #137 - Confusion of Speech

Curmudgeophan's Caption Contest #2


They said it couldn't be done, but Fr. Benedict did it once.  It has taken several months for Curmudgeophan to recover and regain his lemony fresh personality.  He's been training hard with Subdeacon Barfy and reading a lot of OCA websites lately so he's ready for a new challenge.

Go ahead, hit him with your best shot.


The winner will get whatever I give them, whenever I get around to it.

... or not be jealous.
