French Mile?[edit]

What on God's green Earth is a French mile? The French had pieds and lieues, or feet and leagues, but nothing that was named from the old Roman milia passuum. So does that reference in Mercator's letter refer to lieues calling them miles or to something else? --Wtrmute (talk) 18:21, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

Lost?[edit]

Was this one of the inspirations behind the magnetic island of the TV shows LOST? And I remember a ship called the black rock also. Mando Salama (talk) 08:56, 19 April 2016 (UTC)
