"Any" meridian could be - since I get to choose it - 179W. I'll bet you do not live West of that Meridian.

Unless your argument is that anything, including, say, Grand Manan Island (44.7N,66.8W) is still "west" of the 179W meridian.

I think that is the argument. If you find yourself on the 179W meridian, travel due north to lat. 45; then head west (roughly towards Sakhalin Island). Keep going west and you will hit Grand Manan.

Silly? Maybe. Ask @Haborix

To stop being obtuse (and/or silly), that is what I meant. I really only expected to elicit boos, not analysis.
