"The land-mass, seen here, is reportedly about 250 ft. _long_."

The photo is of an object about as nearly perfectly circular as will ever
be found in nature. How TF can a journal of the supposed "quality" of TIME
describe a circle as "*long*"?

Give me strength.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
