Excuse me, but just as most people don't count the length of their
toenails when figuring out how tall they are,  most people only
would count only the important bits of America.

Your continuious anti-american [sic] sentiment is clearly caused
by your inferiority complex due to being born in a boil on the ass
of the United States.

  He did say "the North American Continent", and it does get
  slightly wider farther north.  (The Trans-Canada Highway,
  for example, is 7600 km long, or 4720 or so miles).  North
  America is also very long north-to-south.
  gives a decent view of the continent.
  Don't let your mind be as narrow as the "contiguous" parts
  of your country. :-)
