    Part One: Two men get lost whilst walking in the woods. One starts walking northwards, whilst the other heads south. They bump into each other a quarter of an hour later. Explain.

    Part Two: If a man walks due south for 4 miles and then due north for 3 miles, what is the maximum distance he can be from where he started?

    Part one I am thrown by the woods thing, no woods at the poles so
    thats out. Part two, 7 miles, he starts 4 miles from the south pole
    and keeps going.

    AH! Beaky snitch!
    On part two, in a three dimensional sense, the way the neutrino flies,
    its slightly less than 7 miles if you make a straight line between the
    two points, not much though.
