So you remember how when Bugs Bunny dug a deep hole he always came out in China? If he was digging straight down, he’d have to come out in the southern hemisphere, no? Ever think about that?
Me neither. I was just trying to eat up my Cap’n Crunch before it got soggy.
But here’s the thing: If you figure up the exact opposite side of the world from Black Mountain, NC, where I call home, it happens to come out in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Perth, Australia (the other side of the country from Brisbane).
So if you’re in North America and you want to point at me, it’s not really a question of which direction to point on the horizon. Just point more or less straight down.
