Since this is a smartass list in general, I'll retort:
A "100 km circle area" is wrong in general, because areas are described
in square meters or square kilometers. Your description contains a
distance unit, and it's very logical to assume the distance from the
center of the area, also called the "arc radius". Your followup
description of the diameter is the less logical assumption.
Travelling 50 km in 30 minutes would require 100 km/h as the median
speed. Let's assume, that the trip starts in the city of Berne and
getting to the highway takes 5-10 minutes depending where you start.
Also, the speed limit on the highways around Berne is 80 to 100 km/h for
several kilometers in each direction. So getting to a median speed of
100 km/h for 50 km will be quite impossible.
So in my not-so-humble opinion, Andreas' joke is valid and funny.

I can't resist answering this one, although it is a lot of noise.
Let's assume Bern is at the center of the circle and you are within
100 km distance from each ends, that's maximum 50 km away.
If you can't make 50 km in 30 minutes, then you've got a serious
As for serious replies, I'll look all of them one by one when I get a
few of them.
