"If a dozen men, working eight hours a day, had to dig a hole ten-and-a-half miles deep—how long would it be, including Sundays, before they put down their spades?"

The King's eyes shone with a cunning sparkle. He gazed at the Cat with a look of triumph. But the Cat had its answer ready.

"Two seconds," it said quickly, with a little flick of its tail.

"Two seconds! Are you mad? The answer's in years!" The King rubbed his hands together with glee at the thought of the Cat's mistake.

"I repeat," said the Cat. "It would take them two seconds. To dig such a hole would be utterly foolish. 'Ten miles deep?' they would say. 'Why, what on earth for?'"

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about seeking legal remedies.

If I didn't drive by the sign like this every day I would agree with you. So yes administrative division is a "borough" even though New Yorkers refer them as "boros" an in no other way. So please leave them be.

All Please don't change the spelling of the 'boro' to 'borough'. It's spelled that way on purpose!

comment Is it legal to bring Jamón Ibérico from Spain into the United States?
You might. The security in Newark was basically 2 stage. First a dog was walking around looking for meats. At which point a bunch was thrown in the garbage that was at the luggage carousels and another one in the hall. Then for those lucky enough to pass that you have an XRay machine that will make meats show up in bright red color on the screen.
