You are standing on a beach looking out into the ocean. Assuming your view is unobstructed, how far can you see?
(In reply to re(2): RE: I see no ship
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.
