Dig a hole to China?

Here's a fun map that shows where you would end up if you dug a hole to the other side of the world. If I dug a hole from my house, I'd end up in the ocean. Somewhere between Madagascar and Antartica. Pretty cool.

It looks like I would end up in the Indian Ocean. I hope there will be a boat nearby.

I'd end up in the Indian Ocean next to Australia. I need to start working on my swimming skills!

With my luck I'd be halfway through my digging when the man who runs Hades would saunter over and ask me why I was checking in early.

crewsk - I wouldn't be far from you - we can go in together on the rescue boat!

Sounds good to me elf! I sure hope they don't take long to get there, I have a real problem with possibly being shark bait!
