Which arguably walking between any three points on the ground (or quite frankly on almost any other not totally flat surface) ought to net you. :)

And I'm back to being the dumbest person in the room again...

Actually, I was thinking about that brainteaser this morning ("Where can you walk 1 mile south, 1 mile east, 1 mile north and get back to your start point") because I'm aware that it has several possible answers.

I had a vague idea that "non-Euclidean space" was all theoretical, so I'd assumed that it would be impossible for any non-Euclidean stuff to exist in our universe. Ah well, at least I've learnt something, so thank you both for that.
