The Movie Remake of the Jules Verne schoolboy story is soon to start in Australia. ?.
It is well known among people with a brain that the archaic distance titled a League when converted into Miles will read, Three miles, So assuming some halfwit is going to travel 20,000 leagues, his converted distance would become 60,000 Miles. So if the distance between the Core of the earth being approx 7,500 miles and the shorter journey (not the Diameter) is only one Eighth of 20,000 leagues or 60,000 miles (see diagram) his journey would take him into outer space.
<60 20="" leagues.="" miles="" nbsp="" or="">60>
Assuming these are earths OOOOOOOO. So traveling in a lateral or vertical direction the Jules Verne adventurer would travel through EIGHT Earths.
Doesn't make sense or am I missing some obscure technical detail with this cock and bull yarn. Vest back soon.
