It's nothing of Earth shattering importance I know, but... I read something the other day about an art exhibition called nine by five and how this seemed relevant to Jersey... and a Google search has revealed an awful lot of webpages where the island is described as 9 x 5 miles in size.... and it's starting to irritate me now....
Perhaps people are confusing the land area generally reported as about 45 square miles with the 9 and the 5 that so happily multiply together to that number? Obviously the irregular shape doesn't lend itself well to measurements like these, but I really think that at least 10 x 6 would be a bit more realistic.
I hereby claim the Nerd of the Week award! (I'll just hang on to it from last week)
