You are standing on a beach looking out into the ocean. Assuming your view is unobstructed, how far can you see?

Right - I didn't mean that the question should have given us literals  to plug in for the variables.  I just meant that the question could have been semantically clearer with regard to what it was asking us to compute and what assumptions we should make.  I did give credit to those who had already solved the "How far is the horizon?" question, which I agree was what we all intuitively "knew" that Juggler was asking.
