1 .Go to google maps.
2. Press routedescriptions (or what its called in english - I'm seing danish text myself of course)
3. Write Japan as start.
4. Write China as destination.
5. You might have to press "calculate route a couple of times)
6. Go to nr. 43 i route description
7. when you're finished laughing - share the fun :)

I hope this works in non-danish browsers too - but I don't see why it shouldn't :)

SPOILER IN THE POSTS BELOW - So don't read them before trying yourself - or do if you're really lazy ;)

can someone figure out how fast a jet ski goes, then find how long it would take to travel that distance on one.
I'd do it, but it seems like math would be involved.

Rough guesstimate - I would say that a jet ski can do about 45mph somewhat safely - but can cut the waves at maybe around 70mph before hitting an aqautic "speed bump" and going airbourne. Beyond that - additional acceleration is a moot issue.

Brilliant. You can type in google
"45 mph in kph"

and get

45 mph = 72.42048 kph

then
"782 / 72.42048"

to get
782 / 72.42048 = 10.7980505

So a mere 10.8 hours of jet skiing.

If I owned a kayak company I'd hit Google up for the product placement space that jet-ski is getting right now.
