If you were to draw a straight line, or dig a tunnel, through America, where would you end up?
Let's say you have a globe that sits upright on a table so that the south pole is on the table. You drill a hole, maybe a few holes, in America with a long drill bit, where is the other end of the hole?
The drill bit is parallel to the table surface.
Please note this line is not through the core of the earth, and I am not referring to the antipode of America, which is the Indian Ocean.
