My theory was correct, if you dig a hole in Chicago and go all the way to the other side of the Earth, you’ll end up in the middle of the Indian Ocean. I got proof!!

    I still think it’s China, like my grandpappy always told me!

    OMG this is my new favorite thing ever-ever-ever!!

    I started digging a hole in Pearland, Texas with my brother in about 1975. It was pretty deep. We could sit in it. I wonder if it’s still there.

    We had a dream. A dream of China.

    But alas…

    Alana, you and your brother can still make it to China. Thing is, um, you’d have to move to Chile, buy a boat, and start drilling somewhere off the coast. But follow your dream, Alana, follow it…no matter where it may take you…

    I do love this thing.

    So if I actually take CP’s advice, but reverse it and start digging at the right spot in the Indian Ocean, I could actually end up exactly where I’m not supposed to be today: Millenium Park! Why am I not supposed to be there, you ask? Because Toyota has rented it out for the day:

    “Among the attractions off-limits are the Great Lawn, the “Cloud Gate” sculpture popularly known as the “Bean,” and the bandstand, a popular lunch spot. Also closed to outsiders are the Pritzker Pavilion, Harris Theater, BP Bridge, McCormick Tribune Plaza and Park Grill.

    Only the Crown Fountain, Lurie Garden, Wrigley Square and the Millennium Park bicycle station

    I’ll happily rent out my portion of this public space in exchange for a Prius.
