What In The World Happened Here? II:

The ocean is about six miles south and generally east of here.


It's perfectly OK required to post cryptic answers.

None of the views expressed here in any way represent those of the unidentified agency that I work for or, often, reality. It's just me, fired up by coffee and powerful prose.

Third from the right, last row looks rather uncertain as to his location.

Something about not playing dice.

Geeky physics humor (or a reasonable facsimile thereof).

We could switch to non-physics-related locations.

Apparently, the phrase "your name is mud" did not originate with this episode.

I know a spot that looks roughly like the picture and meets the description, but I did not find a match. I admit that the "42" went right by me, although I hope it was an obscure correct answer.

42 is the single most cryptic answer in the universe. The question is "Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything", from HHGTTG. KevinR was just having fun with cryptic answer required bit, and that required the proper logo...

With 42 out of the way, this event was named for a geographical location, but actually occurred somewhere else. The building in the smaller rectangle is an abbey which was built after the event.

Of course. It shows me that I have not hitched for quite a while! Shame. I'm glad that Kevin was awake. blush

OK, I was on the wrong damned continent. Hey, I was on a continent at all! And I was almost in the wrong millenium!

At this point, I won't make an effort to be too obscure.
