:lol: :lol:

The perceived height of a mountain is relative to the flatness of the surrounding country. Anyone agree with me?

And what happens if you laugh your head off - how d'you get it back on?

I suppose you're right on that one...

But why is it that some mountains look smaller close up than far away? I'm thinking particularly of Errigal :shock:

I've never seen Errigal in reality. My best guess is that when a mountain is in a flat country it's the only landmark that stands out. Coming from afar you see flat ground and suddenly a hump in the skyline and that hump seems big. But then you get closer and realize that it isn't that big after all. (I have no idea how high Errigal is, actually, and the surrounding country appears to be hilly as well)
