Leaving aside the "did they really find the source of the Nile" question can someone help me understand this bit that I read on a site debating the claim:
// In short, the "Top Gear" team redefined the phrase "source of the Nile" by first redefining "Nile" to include the Mediterranean Sea, thus moving the mouth of the Nile from Egypt to the Strait of Gibraltar. That resulted in the new source being in a location one could drive to (unlike the source recognized by everyone else).//
how does moving the mouth to the Strait of Gib make the source one that could be driven to? ..when the usual Nile delta apparently doesn't?

beats me. The source is usually considered to be the other end of the river, but perhaps what's what they mean by redefining the source? So it's the wide end, not the narrow one?
General Charles "Chinese" Gordon actually found the precise location of the source of the Nile and revealed it in a missive to Mr Gladstone; however, unfortunately, that correspondence has been lost to the sands of time...Not a lot of people know that.
if for fun "top gear" the specials
i thought that would be obvious to all
