Fancy a quick laugh?

Go to google
click on maps
then "get directions"
in the 'from' box put "New York", in the 'to' box put "London, England"
have a read of direction number 23

:thumbsup: :rotfl:

3rd GC thread on this now. Sorry, ceases to have an effect.

Seems New York > anywhere in Europe creates the "swim" direction

Sorry didn't read in the terms and conditions that we had to get your approval. I thought it was funny.

Too right the weather is nice - having a slipped disc has meant six lovely weeks off, the first time this week I have been able to go out anywhere :suicide:

plus, I didn't have to swim over the Atlantic ocean to get there :smashin:

Assuming you don't drown in the Atlantic, you're still going to have trouble getting from France to England. Apparently, Google Maps thinks there's a land border, or possibly a road tunnel.

Well I presume its implied that they mean putting your car onto a ferry or the train

No, Direction 40 says "Slight right at Dover - Boulogne-sur-Mer" for 30.1 miles; and if you click on Direction 41 ["Continue on Dover - Boulogne-sur-Mer" for .2 miles], you can see a map showing the blue line of the route over the Channel. You get the same result with directions from anywhere in France to England. Seeing that the website indicates which roads are Toll Roads in France, you'd think that if the website knew that a train or ferry is needed to cross the Channel, it would say so.
