Andrew Tanenbaum: Computer Networks (1981), Chapter 1, Problem 1:

Imagine that you have trained your St. Bernhard, Bernie, to carry a box of three floppy disks instead of a flask of brandy. (When your disk fills up, you consider that an emergency. These floppy disks each contain 250,000 bytes. The dog can travel to you side, where you may be, at 18 km/hour. For what range of distances does Bernie have a higher data rate than a 300 bps telephone line?

Updated version: Bernie now has the flask replaced with box containing 8192 microSDXC memory cards, each holding 128 GByte of data. For what range of distances does Bernie have a higher data rate than a 100 Mbps optical fiber?
