    Taylor* Chuck    47.9    122.3
    Tripp Steven     37.5   -140
    
    * = Position approximated by looking up city in Encarta World Atlas
    (North and West are positive, South and East are negative)
    
    Using these 14 data points, the average latitude is 24.6 North,
    and the average longitude is 27.7 West, a spot 487 nautical miles
    north of Mindelo, Cape Verde islands in the central Atlantic ocean.
    This is quite a distance from the nearest restaurant.
    
    The nearest spot on a continent is Nouakchott, Mauritania, 761 nmi SE.
    It is 1177 nautical miles NE to Casablanca in Morocco.
    
    Hmmmm...
