Today's ridiculously hyperbolic quote

From the Guardian, talking about the new Airbus 380 'super-jumbo':

Geoff Dixon, chief executive of the Australian national airline, Qantas, said the Antipodes would be brought closer by the new plane. He said it would stimulate renewed travel by "conquering the tyranny of distance" for far-flung, isolated countries.

Yes, curse that evil, malicious distance.
