Re: ATM (was Re: too many routes)
Excuse me, but just as most people don't count the length of their toenails when figuring out how tall they are, most people only would count only the important bits of America. Your continuious anti-american [sic] sentiment is clearly caused by your inferiority complex due to being born in a boil on the ass of the United States. :-) Best, Paul From: "Sean M.

He did say "the North American Continent", and it does get slightly wider farther north. (The Trans-Canada Highway, for example, is 7600 km long, or 4720 or so miles). North America is also very long north-to-south. http://www-nais.ccm.emr.ca:80/wwwnais/select/northamr/english/html/en-a.html gives a decent view of the continent. Don't let your mind be as narrow as the "contiguous" parts of your country. :-) Sean.
