We’ve always known that silly old myth about digging a hole through the Earth straight to China couldn’t possibly be true, especially considering all the Morlocks, dinosaurs and Lava Men living in the center of the Earth.
But if you’re determined to dig your way through the world anyway you should first find out where you’re going to end up once the digging is done, and here’s a hint- you won’t end up in China unless you live in South America.
So are you ready to figure out where you’d end up if you dug a hole straight through the Earth? Then consult this Interactive Antipodes Map created by Romanian IT company Aniotek Solutions and see which antipodal city you’d wind up in.
Unfortunately for me there is no antipodal city for San Diego, so I’d end up in the Indian Ocean near Madagascar, good thing I wasn’t planning on digging an impossibly long hole this weekend…
