I'm a Post-Doctoral Fellow in atmospheric remote sensing at the University of Toronto in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I first came to Stack Exchange for practical reasons: Tex.SE has been of major help when I wrote my licentiate (midterm) thesis. Since then, I have discovered the joy of many websites. As my network profile will show, I'm interested in travel, outdoor, scientific skepticism, and as I work in academia, also in academia and LaTeX.

Looks like they didn't want to express the full length of the coast in a vector...

Persists, perhaps it's a browser/javascript bug (Firefox 11.0), I'll try tonight at home to see if there is any difference.
