That's scary. Esp if you remove the reclamation on Singapore, they are even more alike!

Cool stuff. I just used it to compare Singapore to Penang (because my friend kept disagreeing with me that Penang is smaller than Singapore in size.

Wolframalpha is a seriously power computational engine. Completely different to google. It solves math, chem, physics problems etc. I would not have go through my masters wiithout it (particularly in the chem section).

That was interesting, but the URL broke for me, here it is bare ...

I'd considered the land reclamation on the E and W sides of SG too, without which you're right they'd be even more alike.

It started with a graphic of the IoW in the morning paper, and I just did a double-take :lol: followed by a bit of a :o

The IoW is famous for it's Jurassic Coast, Cowes race week (ocean-going yachting), it's idiosyncratic gauge railway and it's allegedly rather in-bred population.

Perish the thought .... it never crossed my mind.

-- What with the Jurassic politics (cough), all SG needs is a yacht-week.
