Time-waster of the day: April 5, 2011

Ever wonder where you’d end up if you started digging a hole in the earth from Providence? Speculate no longer, you curious cat! This nifty Google Maps mash-up has solved the age-old digging problem that you’ve likely thought about at least once or twice in your life.  Curiously enough, the results can be somewhat unexpected (contrary to popular belief, most of the time you don’t wind up in China if you start from anywhere in the US).  For example, if you were to start digging right here at Brown, you’d end up in the Indian Ocean, right off of the coast of Australia (the red flag represents exactly where you’d emerge).  If you feel the need to brave this journey tomorrow, don’t forget to bring a life jacket!
