Liverpool, England, UK

How far is Liverpool from London?  2 hours and 19 minutes.  How far is Paris from London?  2 hours and 19 minutes.  In time-space, Liverpool and Paris are equidistant from London.  In geographic space, Liverpool is 60 miles closer to London.  How do you explain these equations?  [2011]

  1. It's the same type of explanation as being 58 miles south of Washington DC and 58 miles north of Richmond, yet drive time is twice that to DC than to Richmond! Penny from GeoConnects
