No, really. According to the Monk Map, the closest Monk is over 4800 miles away: BatGnat, hiding down in Sydney, Australia. The furthest is j.a.p.h, in the middle of the Atlantic, over 11600 miles away. It seems as though I'm the only Monk in all of Asia.

j.a.p.h.'s little lie not withstanding, I'm also the furthest monk from anyone else. But that depends on definition I suppose. I tried to come up with a technical definition, but really The Big Monk Map shows it much better. I'm over in Japan. That freak dot down by South America would be j.a.p.h., although doesn't show any landmass down there. ;)

Logic of course deems that all this isn't quite true, as there are currently over 5000 registered Monks, where as just over 140 are currently mapified. Forsake not your deity, show him your love and let him know you're out there. Of course the allmighty would be powerful enough to track you down, but he has better things to do with his time, ya know?
