Something New


So I was looking at another DWI videotape when I noticed something different on the screen . . . Latitude and Longitude coordinates. I'll be dang. There they were:

33n12'56 and 97w45'83

I checked them out on Mapquest and Google maps and found out that Bridgeport police had arrested the guy in China. Yep, right there where the red star is (which is fitting.)

By luck, I figured out that a negative sign went in front of the 97.

97 degrees WEST and 33 NORTH is Bridgeport and is correct. If you enter it into Google or whatever without a negative sign, that makes it EAST. You must use a negative to make it go WEST.

If you enter it correctly, it will show up correctly.

So, if an oil well was drilled in Wise County, at the exact location the person was caught at, and they went thru the center of the earth, the bit would come out at the red star in China, huh?

Actually...no

If you went through the exact center of the earth, you would exit directly south of that red star, in the southern hemisphere. That would be pretty much in the center of the Indian Ocean.
