On a Mercator map A, B & C are about the same.

OK, but Mercator projections, by design, distort distances. Since the actual distances are A = 1,021 miles, B = 1,883 miles and C = 2,277 miles, I was wondering why 2 people confidently ruled out B, but still considered A, which is about half the distance represented by B.

Estonut:

I know exactly where DC is & approximately where Mexico City is. I've driven cross-country in the US, though never into Mexico further than just across the border. But I could deduce how much farther Mexico City was.

I didn't have this kind of info on Oslo & Moscow.

Call me a map geek. I have a pretty good ability to visualize a map or globe in my head.
