Just in case you were wondering ...

... if you should take the time to dig that hole to the center of the earth, Live Physics has a handy little app that shows you where you would end up if you did. My plans have been put on hold until I get a submarine, alas.

Hey! If I cross the street to the school (Don't need no stinking hole in my front yard!) I come out just a short swim (well, it looks short on the map...) to southwest Australia!

Hi ho! Hi Ho! It's off to dig I go...

Well, BCR and I will need a sub *And* some warm long-johns, it looks like! I think I'd rather come help you dig closer to Australian, methinks. Maybe we can get Trias to start from the other side and meet us ;-)

Actually, you'll be closer to Harris Island than Ozzie Land, John. But I'm just a short dog-paddle from Albany, WA.

That's Western Australia, not Washington. Sorry, ladies...

Hmmm! Who knew? All those holes I was digging as a child would have landed me in Botswana, not China.

Wow! What a surprise that would have been.

Imagine how surprised the Botswanis would have been ;-)

*Nothing* surprises a Botswani.

Except seeing a Namibian drop in expecting to go fishing...

Maybe a Submarine would help. No, no - for BCR! Not the Botswanis!
