    Re: Headline - Accidental tourist ends up in the wrong Sydney

    This is particularly funny to me.  When I was a cadet on a ship, we broke down in the Straits of St. Lawrence and were towed to the town of Sydney.  While awaiting the tow boat, the mate on watch decided that the cadets needed to be kept busy so we were asked to calculate the distance and an ETA at 15 knots from Sydney, Canada to Sydney Australia.  It took awhile for us to figure the best way to go and then crunch all the numbers.
