Map of the Day: The Other Side of the Globe

When you were younger did you ever dream of "digging a hole to China" in your backyard?  Well, it turns out that if you live in the U.S. you wouldn't have ended up anywhere near Beijing, even if you had figured out how to dig through the Earth's molten core.  This map tool allows you to see what's on the other side of the globe from where you live.  Click on the link and put your hometown in the middle of "map 1."  The second map shows what's across the globe.  Spoiler Alert: The answer is less exciting than you think.
