MXUS Border Tunnel Discovered


Border Tunnel Discovered In Upscale Neighborhood

Mon Feb 28, 7:06 PM ET 

Federal authorities from San Diego are investigating a border tunnel 
discovered by Mexican authorities over the weekend, it was reported 
Monday. 

The tunnel connected a luxurious Mexicali residence to neighboring 
Calexico in Imperial County, officials with the Mexican Federal 
Attorney General's Office told The San Diego Union-Tribune. 

Inside the passageway, investigators discovered lighting and 
ventilation equipment, a closed-circuit security system, hydraulic 
machinery and various tools, Mexican authorities told the newspaper. 

The finding led agents to believe that the tunnel was presumably used 
for drug trafficking, Mexican authorities told the Union-Tribune. 

A middle section of the tunnel was initially discovered in the United 
States early Friday by U.S. Border Patrol agents checking for tunnels 
in a residential area of Calexico, the newspaper reported. It is the 
third tunnel found in Calexico in the past 15 months. 

U.S. investigators searched for the tunnel's other end, Lauren Mack, 
a spokeswoman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in San 
Diego told the Union-Tribune. 

"This is an ongoing criminal investigation, and we're still trying to

hahahaha
& youd think these 
authorities 
would just follow the freakin thing & see where it
leads
hahahahaha
but arrant bounders they are

fresh diagnostic anatomy of the mouse anyway


a few bits up front about the borders & oecussi etc
http://www.reliefweb.int/rw/RWB.NSF/db900SID/KHII-6A33UX?OpenDocument
but note especially the twisted words from the ozzie
clinician
about 2 thirds of the way down the page 
to the effect that
oz has a big stake in ensuring that the mouse is
equipped to meet the challenges facing it
& particularly commends its efforts to develop a
cooperative approach to border management issues
hahahahaha
oops that was me
i couldnt help it 
& 
the development of close relations with its neighbors
will be crucial to its long term stability
& 
tho it has made remarkable progress
it clearly requires the continued support of its
neighbors 
etc etc
i kid you not
hahahaha
amazing

& the stalled er talks are set to resume monday
as you may recall
with oz begging the roaring mouse for more creativity

Re: left v right lobe was europe v siberia & eupen and malmedy


& upon further scrutiny
& just to throw the peninsula olympics entirely up in the air once 
again
i am finding that the definitional requirement that there be a 
perceptible protrusion from a perceptible mainland
as first enunciated by lowell i think
also places a limit on the size of the winning peninsula
yikes
since whichever is the larger lobe thus cannot be the peninsula
yikes 
but must serve instead as the mainland from which the smaller 
lobe protrudes as peninsula
aha
& thus by strict geographical definition it is not the larger but the 
smaller lobe that will actually win the largest peninsula title
hahaha
& this smaller lobe will become not only the gold medalist of 
afroeurasia but of the entire world in fact

for this is no longer just a minor inter regional matter
hahaha
but a real world record in the making worthy of guinness

the worlds largest peninsula

arabia & baja & india all currently make the claim

but guinness himself is silent for some reason

It's has earlier been surgested that BGCSMK=BGw, but this map suggests otherwise:
 
 
This site however has a much more different CSMK border, pointing a BGw.

Can anybody tell if these boundaries still excist, as shown on the map. And what they represent.
 
I find the outer boundary with settlement PAMOT quite interesting.

widest isthmus measured but largest peninsula still elusive


some slight additional progress has been made toward
determining the worlds largest peninsula

for starters
the coords of the termini of its isthmus
also evidently the worlds largest of its kind
have been carefully noted 
to the best of my limited ability 
specifically
nlat 63d40m x elong 37d48m
on onega gulf of the white sea
&
nlat 30d30m x elong 48d54m
on an iranian inlet of the persian gulf

but that is accurately enough for a much improved
trial balance to be based upon & to proceed from
if only i could figure out how to superimpose an image
of the great circle arc that would join these terminal
points 
onto an outline map of the countries it would cross
particularly russia & azerbaijan & iran 
all accurately enough to permit reasonably good
estimates of the proportions of the territorial areas
of those countries that would fall to either side of
the isthmus

but can anyone help with that or toward that

& it probably wouldnt even have to be extremely
terribly accurate for the trial to be successful
either
since 
again 
the margin of imbalance isnt very likely to be so
razor thin that it would matter

indeed our remaining without a sure winner at this
late hour hasnt been due so much to any precision gap
as it has been to an understanding gap 
til recently anyway
& as it is due now to a technique gap

for the moment

but i think the puzzle is very solvable in due time

um
& being temporarily stumped in the original direction
i did at least take some substitute gratification in
determining the length of the worlds longest isthmus
since i could

3768 kilometers

um
& it has also occurred to me that another good name
for the winning peninsula 
whichever lobe it is
might be 
daedalus 9
as in the surreal line score of the event
daedalus nine
peninsula dead

hmm
maybe i could get the guinness people to help me out
with this trial balance demonstration
since they will need it to be satisfied themselves in
the end

& they might take an active interest in such a
definitive winner once they realize one can be had

but i guess the trick will be in convincing them that
such a monster of a winner would still be a peninsula

it does boggle the mind a bit

Re: widest isthmus measured but largest peninsula still elusive


The best practical visualization of any great circle on a map is to stretch a 
string between the two terminal points on the surface of a globe.  Most folks 
don't have a globe lying around, but most libraries do.

Re: widest isthmus measured but largest peninsula still elusive


good thinking
thank you
so all i need to find now is a big enough & good enough & new 
enough globe 

since i already own the string

& some additional number crunching i have also been doing in 
the meantime tells me the great circle isthmus route actually 
runs a good deal farther to the west than i had previously thought 
possible
thus very likely introducing the slight additional complication of 
dividing several other countries too
while also decimating if not completely obliterating & reversing 
the 1400 ksk advantage enjoyed by the west lobe in the previous 
trial balance

& thus the contest has tightened up again into an implausibly 
dead heat 
for now

nor would i have wanted it any other way frankly

but this is looking very doable now

what fun
