    How can this be?

    If Hans stands in front of Leif, yet Leif is standing in front of Hans!??

    How can this be?

    OK I'll try this

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> Leif is on the North Pole and Hans is on the South Pole, Hans faces England(say) along the Greenwich meridian, Leif has his back to England but in line with the same meridian</span hide>

    Re: How can this be?

    Hmmm. I'd say the original question should have been that I was standing behind Hans who, in turn was standing behind me. I'm not taken in by this "the world is round" nonsense, so this standing Poles apart theory won't wash with me!
    Anyway, I would never stand in front of Hans. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    According to some theoretical Physicists, yes.

    Dunno if it's full of jam though...
