We want to send out a batch of buttons but we only have one queued up to send. We would much prefer to send them in batches of ten to save time.

So, ask for some buttons, eh?

Which button has traveled (as the crow flies) the furthest yet?

Our coordinates are:
  • Latitude: 35.231200
  • Longitude: -90.777080

I can think of a few folks that might want one. Noll is still reachable. I doubt that Nickel would want one (she did not seem too excited when I e-mailed her a while back.)

That would be mine, almost sure, but I think it asked for directions from google maps, and it is lost somewhere on the way...

(edit: grr, I selected "walking" but something was wrong with the link, so I chose "by car" but disabled the highways)
(edit2: by the way, a math problem: how many km per hour does a sparrow walk? This is serious!)

Google Earth.

Although you can't tell, I put the ends right on the coordinates, perhaps with a meter of error (at most).

By comparison, I am a (relatively) pedestrian 825 kilometers distant.

Edit: To be fair, the crow would actually fly a bit further than the advertised number, due to the fact that the crow flies at a strictly non-zero altitude.
