I used Berlin to LA as comparison for that. Then ADDED Berlin to NY as a further, separate comparison to provide additional scale.
Only an idiot would automatically assume that the latter by default MUST be PART of the former.
Seriously, you COULD have come up with some sane objections or comments like Doug or Harold, as i just did a simple and quick comparison, but instead you draw extended connections that doesn´t exist?
Right so the last line of your post meant nothing.
Exactly how is twice to thrice the overseas distance to New York closer?
So if the first line says Western US and the last line says New York is closer ...
Nowhere in the snipped portion is anything to denote that anything is different in the comparisons. You specifically note this.
Only can't I read according to you. Now I am at fault for not reading your mind, apparently. Thus an idiot.
Still trying to figure out why New York even matters UNLESS it is in the Western US.
