It's not necessarily distorted, it's just a different frame of reference. I can remember a conversation like this at a Joint Techs meeting many years back. Several of us were outgassing about how expensive it was to get 100mbps connections off our campuses, until the guy from the University of Hawaii told us how much he was paying per month for a *T1* to the mainland. :D
