I tot u pulling my leg .. really got la the contest! Just checked their website!

This would put all 30,000 of us at an unfair advantage - or better yet, KFC is gonna scratch their heads when they see 10,000 entries with the EXACT same mileage down to the 2 decimal points! :nutz:

That's assuming someone gives us the missing POIs .. pronto!

And post up the wrong POI for the rest of us, and then submit a POI correction AFTER the contest has closed?

Very clever! :wink:

The Jln Mahkota Teluk Intan is a short stretch of road. So it doesn't matter where is the exact POI. With the coordinates in MSM and the 2 extra POIs I gave earlier, everyone will get the same distance. The issue is whether the KFC contest organisers measured the distance accurately in the first place. Did they use the car odometer or a GPSr to measure the distance?

My guess?

They drove around in a car - complete with standard manufacturer innacuracy on the odometer. Worse, if the mamat measuring the distance drives a car with wide sports rims - throwing the odometer even farther off the scale.

So our answers would differ by some measure I think. At least by a few percentage points. Not that we could take our gps distance as gospel truth either! But it would be close!

Sorry guys. I was bitten by a bee at the bottom of my left feet. Can't drive so I can't get you the coordinates.

Aah .. a simple case of removing the stinger, apply some hydrocort, some antihistamine and you'd be quickly be on your way to the pages of NST as the winner of the NST contest! :wink:
