Friday Fun Link – Dig A Hole To The Other Side of the World

I’m sure everybody’s wondered where they’d end up if they could dig a hole directly through to the other side of the earth.  In fact, I think the official playground ruling on this immortal question, at least for anyone contemplating this question in Canada, is “China”.

Now, technology allows you to answer that exact question for real. And the answer (at least for me) is “somewhere south of the Indian Ocean, relatively close to Antarctica.” (In fact, the nearest land mass is the French Southern and Antarctic Lands.)

Not China but close enough! 😉
