Dig here

If you dig a hole through the earth, where will you end up? Check out these websites for the answer. They're both a clever use of Google Maps.

With this map, you can click anywhere on the map and you'll get a "Dig here" link. Click the link and a push-pin shows you where you'd end up.

This one has two maps side by side. You can drag one and watch the results in the other.

And we were always taught we'd end up in China.

  1. I just did some digging and found one fascinating fact - give or take an error of several hundred (or thousand) miles each way - when I dug in the Arctic circle (at least what I thought was the AC), I ended up in the Antarctica, which makes total sense. However, going from NC brought me to the southwest side of Australia, probably in the Indian Ocean; no doubt it would be close to where you would end up. Speaking of....we saw the movie about - I think it was called "The March of the Penguins." Incredible! It proves one thing most powerfully - God's sovereign plan and care for all the magnificent creatures He created, including even us.
