If you traveled at the speed of light, it would take you about 1.3 seconds to get from Earth to the Moon (for scale, the light travels from the Sun to Earth in about 8 minutes). Planetary expert James O’Donoghue animates the distance using NASA imagery.
Have you eaten a whole medium-sized bird on Christmas? Has the holiday festive food left you fat and constipated? Taking a walk might help you get the bowels moving again. A 22,077 km walk from Magadan, Russia to Cape Town, South Africa.
Someone with way too much time on their hands at iheartchaos.com has been playing with Google Maps and found that the longest possible walk on this planet is between Magadan and Cape Town. The problem is it takes you through some of the most dangerous regions of the world including South Sudan and Syria. But if you managed to eat 2 kg of meat in one sitting, I´m sure you can handle a few terrorists who decapitate pedestrians for fun. Here is the Google Maps link to help you plan and a helpful guide to Magadan from a South African who took the walk back in 2005 after a particularly big Christmas dinner.
