    "mcnaial1, yes, but there`s this newfangled invention called a PLANE"
    JAXLEY, yes, but then it wouldnt be SMIMMING at all. the point he was making is that you cant "swim", so it should have said something else.
    but oh well, it doesnt really matter.

    This was one was amusing, can you imagine the directions to get to Antarctica.

    I love it! Would there not be a problem when you arrive in France with no car? Might then take you a bit longer if walking or hitch hiking.

    This is definitely real. I typed in from Ireland to Ontario... it said "swim across the Atlantic Ocean". That went through France, too. I don`t know, maybe they just like French or something. Google weirdos...
