1 Answer 1


Although my guess requires we're mixing quantities and units with impunity, and upper and lower cases just as much, I think we're canoeing on the

Pacific ocean


"Electrically dangerous" "Watt" (W) divided by "current" (Capital I, represented as "i" in the question) leaves either "potential difference" or "Volt",

and subtracting a T from the more likely option leaves us with

Vol + canoes.

The odd shape is actually

a map

presenting a lot of those:

    $\begingroup$ Why not canoeing on rot13(Evat bs Sver) itself, instead of the pacific ocean? that fits exactly with the _____FF___ $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Bass, exactly. Canoes are just wordplay to get the Ibypnabrf, thats why the question is not 'where are you canoeing', but in general 'name that place'. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Lezzup I have absolutely no idea what you are babbling on about. The place is well and properly named in the final spoiler block. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ So to be clear, your final answer is Ring of fire, not Pacific ocean, right? $\endgroup$ Commented Aug 10, 2023 at 19:07

    $\begingroup$ @newQOpenWid No, my answer is obviously "South Sandwich", because it fits the "ten letters with a double f near the middle" clue so well. $\endgroup$
