For those of you who need to know:

1 nautical mile is equivialant to 1.15077945 statute miles.
1 statute mile is 0.86897624 nautical miles.

1 knot = 1 nautical mile per hour = 6076 feet per hour
1 mph =1 mile per hour = 5280 feet per hour
So whats between Nautical and Statue mile. A real mile?5280

Nautical miles are metric or something -- they only work if you're in Canada.

Stupid hat wearing, unshaven hairy-legged, 30 degree list, granola munching, laundry hanging, keel dragging, sextant reading, boom ducking, cheap-azz rag-baggers anyway.

I can't even fathom why they use nautical miles. It makes my stomach knot up.
