    If you dug a big hole in your garden, where would it end up?

    C'mon, admit it, when you were a kid you always wondered if you could dig a really big hole and end up in Asia. Wellllll i can't quite give you that, but this is close!

    I'd get down about six feet before my wife spotted it and shot me.

    I'd get a little wet. I would come out in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Australia. But, if I did start to dig the neighbors would think that I was burying a body, or something.

    Well, at least I'm in the Indian Ocean... Come to think of it rather far south in the Indian Ocean... Damn it. You cool people ending up in like, Mongolia. Sounds like a bunch of us could make our holes meet up and drown together!

    If everyone dug just half way through, we would all meet on the middle!! Then we could have a party.

    My wife would just fill the hole back in. Unfortunately, I'd probably still be in it...

    Middle of the Atlantic Ocean... on a sunken city... full of, uhm, gold and nice stuff.

    I was thinking... you start diggin down this hole until you reach the planet´s core, then sudenly you´re diggin up and all the dirt and, erm, magma is falling over you. (...) Quite weird isn´t it?

    It would end up destroying my marijuana plantation and put thousands of illegal immigrant workers out of a job.
