    Well I got that wrong because space is further from Earth than I thought, 62 miles apparently, I do not live 62 miles from the sea, I live about 6 miles from the sea, though currently the sea is about quarter of a mile away from me.

    Flies always take off perpendicular to the surface they are on.

    This makes it really easy to kill them by clapping your hands above them bearing in mind the angle of the surface they are on. They are quick enough to fly up into the closing gap and get squished.
