No Fortitude For Longitude, Part 6

, , , | Related | February 16, 2012

(My dad is in France. My mom calls him at 9 pm in Maine, which would be 3 am in France. My mom grumbles to me the next day.)

Mom: “Brazil and France are the same distance from here, and Brazil is only one hour later, so why would France be 6? It makes no sense.”

Me: “Wrong direction. Brazil is south, France is east.”

Mom: “It’s stupid. France and Brazil should have the same time!”
