I start at point X. I walk one mile south, one mile East and then one mile North and arrive back at point X. Where, besides the North Pole, could point X be?



Answer

I am just so far north of the South pole that after travelling the mile south, my mile East takes me on one complete circumference of the pole. Then my mile north will take me back to point X. There are an infinite number of points X on this line of latitude.
