Remember when you were a kid and somehow no matter where you lived you thought if you dug a hole in the earth to the other side of the world you'd end up in China? You'd come out of that hole with everything upside down with little Chinese children looking at you wearing their cute little pointy hats and a startled look on their face and asking, "Uh, what's up, Doc? Where'd you come from?" Or wait, maybe that was a Bug Bunny episode. Not sure. Anyway, on the digging to the other side of the world, I was a tad little bit off. I would actually end up treading water right smack in middle between the Indian Ocean and the Southern Ocean. I didn't even know there was a Southern Ocean. Go here and find where you would be and then come back and let me know. Just because enquiring minds want to know.
And if that is not fascinating enough for you, you can go here and find out if you went on a walk, where on earth would you go if you actually walked in a straight line. You will be very surprised. It won't be where you think.
Or if you want to come to Alberta and have a coffee with me click here to find the straight path from your place to mine, then put on your walking shoes and come on over! The coffee's always on and I'll even splurge on a cheesecake!
There, now no one can say that I am pure fluff. I'm all about keeping you informed with information that teaches and stretches your mind. What would you ever do without me? You're welcome! :v)
*Update* Well, it seems most of my American friends are treading water in or near the Indian Ocean. Come on, my friends, from other places, tell us where you come out. We really, really want to know. And keep telling me if you're from U.S.A. Just in case, you land somewhere on terra firma. I did go back and "dug" from the middle of China and it comes out on the western shores of South America, so I do know not everyone lands in the Indian Ocean. :v)
