An Earth Science Joke
The teacher of the earth science class was lecturing on mapreading.
After explaining about latitude, longitude, degrees and minutes
the teacher asked,
"Suppose I asked you to meet me for lunch at 23 degrees, 4 minutes north latitude
and 45 degrees, 15 minutes east longitude...?"
After a confused silence, a voice volunteered,
"I guess you'd be eating alone."
