Dig to China?

Did you ever hear the old expression about digging a hole so deep you wind up in China? If you could dig all the way straight through the center of the Earth... where would you really wind up?

To answer that burning question, some folks have created a Web site that lets you select a place anywhere on the face of the Earth for digging. Double-click on the map at that point and click "Dig Here." The site will then show you where you'd wind up if you could dig straight on through.

And if you could dig straight down and through the Earth from Westlake, where would you come out? Hint: It isn't China and you'd better be a really good swimmer!
