Today’s Strange Fact

The New York Review of Books: FAQ: About the electronic edition:

Q: If the entire contents of the archives were printed on one line, at the same size type used in the Review’s print edition, how long would that line be?

A: 255 miles, or about the same distance as New York City to Kennebunkport, Maine.

(But I refuse to try to calculate how many miles of type I’ve read.)
