Antipodes Map!

If you are a stumbler with StumbleUpon, you might have come across this! So, What are antipodes?

In geography, the antipodes of any place on Earth is its antipodal point; that is, the region on the Earth’s surface which is diametrically opposite to it. Two points which are antipodal to one another are connected by a straight line through the centre of the Earth.

This site is a Google Maps mashup where if you choose a location on the top map, the bottom map shows you the antipode! A great time waster! :-) The antipode of our house ends up somewhere in the Indian Ocean close to Australia! So what is your antipode?
