Quote from: Mando Pandango on July 29, 2020, 12:59:23 AMOfficially they all border each other

According to whom? befuddlement

How could that even be geometrically possible? akudood;

YPrrrr

In terms of geography, yes. As defined by the states involved and the federal government, yes.

Mathematically, no.

Colorado is for squares, that's why

There is, as you may know, also a monument to America's Four Corners. It's apparently extremely boring and not worth visiting since it is in the middle of goddamn nowhere.

They meet at a single geometric point. A point has no length or area. It occupies no space in any dimension.

Quote from: YPrrrr on July 29, 2020, 12:23:34 PMMathematically, no.
Am I wrong? It's been a while since I've studied smart stuff

lieve mathematically they have to share a length rather than a point in common

But no you're not wrong because in geography that's considered a border. And like both of us said, officially the state governments and federal government recognize them as bordering states

I mean it's not far from Monument Valley and Petrified Forest


But, a lot of the Southwest is the middle of nowhere tbh

having read this article, i think i've absorbed the same information that would probably be found at the monument's visitor's center and plaques, signs, etc. therefore, i can now avoid ever going there in person.

This is how I felt about the Barringer Crater

Samus Aran

i mean a huge impact crater is way cooler than an imaginary spot where four imaginary borders meet
