I usually don't pass on junk e-mails but this one was good and made me chuckle this morning.

Go to http://www.maps.google.com and type “New York, New York to Paris, France” in the search box. Hit Enter and read line #23. Pretty tough trip…

That's good.

Interestingly, the directions from London, England to New York, NY, route you through France and have you start your swim at the same spot where the NY to Paris swim ends. However, to get across the channel it looks like they route you onto a ferry (without ever making that explicitly clear in the directions).
