    Need to step up my east-west game. Like the opposite of the classic running back that dances around too much.

    Is that a western provinces thing maybe? Anecdotally, Ontario people seem to stick to the Caribbean, Florida, and Mexico for their classic warm-weather resort vacation rather than spend the extra effort to go to Hawaii.

    Probably. 90% of my Canadian friends are west of Ontario. 100% of them have been to Hawaii multiple times.

    I just tried google maps in dark mode. Not enough contrast in default map view for my liking.

    I don't understand the longitude in the bottom left corner. If London is 4 hours ahead that would mean I'm 4 degrees west? Miami Beach is 80W and London is 0W, so it's 80 degrees difference. What am I not understanding.

    The earth rotates at a constant rate. There are 360 degrees, 24 hours x 60 minutes or 360/1440 minutes. That .25 per minute. Time zones make this a really big area. For example if you’re 240 minutes behind or 60 degrees. But that math doesn’t add up so idk. I’m just making this up as I go.

    Thank you. I'm guessing with daylight savings time it's 5 hours, so 75 degrees off.

    I'm not sure I ever met a person from Nepali when I lived in Nebraska. I would have guessed German or maybe Sudanese.
    Creole in Florida makes a ton of sense and would have been my guess.
