    Default A little fun with google maps

    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.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.
