    Here's a few surprises. I think most are aware that the reason why certain countries look bigger or smaller than others is that of something called the Mercator Projection. Putting a 3D planet on a two-dimensional world map was something of a challenge for early cartographers, and so a Flemish geographer and cartographer named Gerardus Mercator came up with a solution for the most accurate world map.

    But it surprised me when I dragged some land masses around the globe to see their true sizes.

    That's brilliant.

    I've been through the tunnel scores of times and never had any sensation of going up and down at all.



    Well, there was the one time when I was giving a lift back to a delightful filly from Courseulles-sur-mer and she chose to show her appreciation as we...







    Shut up Ernie. Go and walk the dog or summat. You're getting distracted.
