Not too long to go!


 

My Border Collie just asked me to change the topic to something a little more challenging. Her idea is fractal geometry.

Where the heck is this thread going?? I think it all started with award anticipation then on to a science class then a discussion of culinary preferences. I think that it should continue with a discussion of the origin of the Universe. Zzzzzzzz.......

Now given that the grid squares are of regular geometric shape and the coastlines are essentially fractals, I would add 10% to this number to account for those sub-squares where a bit of land might be included in an otherwise empty sub-square.
