Math Question...

Postby Paul Southworth on Thu Apr 15, 2004 11:01 am

If someone were to dig a 4000 mile long tunnel, and it took them 59 years to do it (21,535 days), how far is that person traveling per day?

Very bad at math, actually.

59 years equals 21,785.75 days actually (leap years).

969.441033703 feet per day.

Edit: Stupid calculator rounding stuff off.

Is he running back to the opening to dump every shovelful?

If so, then the answer is he's a stupid shit.
