Not surprising if something is orientated north south that it is parallel to
the equator. Miles is surprising -- or at least interesting, as I don't
understand why the mile would be based on the pyramid inch (I presume you
are saying that when the mile was established, it was based on 'The circumference
of the great pyramid is X pyramid inches, we'll just say the earth's
diameter at the equator (I presume you mean that, there's no such
thing as *the* circumference of the earth) is X miles and work out how long
a mile is based on that.
