If the Earth Were a Sandwich

Happy Monday! The week has finally arrived that my girlfriend returns to the country and civilization. She arrives Friday evening and we have a fun filled weekend planned of doing absolutely nothing. With the Holiday this week it should move along relatively quickly. I'm going to enjoy some fireworks tonight and possibly a cookout tomorrow. I will do my best to post tomorrow (even on the holiday, what dedication!).

Here's a fun one! If the Earth Were a Sandwich challenges you to make the Earth into a sandwich. It states, "Never before have two slices of bread been simultaneously placed on the ground directly opposite each other on the globe, this making an EARTH SANDWICH. The fact that the Earth has never been a sandwich is probably why things are so screwed up. The first team to successfully document and prove that they have made an Earth sandwich will get a Leauge of Awesomeness certificate and.........something else." So, what does any of this have to do with mapping or GIS? They have a nice Google mashup that shows the location of folks bread around the World. They also have a tool that shows you the exact opposite spot from your location on the Earth. Check out one of my pics on my slideshow at the bottom of the page. Unfortunately, my half of the sandwich falls in the middle of the Indian ocean and my pooch Bailey consumed it. Check it out at 3 Days!!
