As numerous readers have hastened to point out, my antipodean arithmetic suffers from one too many mod-distractions, resulting in topological infractions. The corrected location is still in the deep ocean off the SW coast of Oz, but at a much balmier latitude. Clearly, this is a much more economically feasible exit strategy.


Corollary question for our UK readers: Were the mythical character of Mr. Ron Obvious from the famous Python sketch in fact real and did manage to tunnel from his home in the UK straight through to the opposite side of the globe, how close would his emergence point be to the planned exit somewhere on the island of Java? (35 pts, plus a possible 15 bonus points for style).]
