How to find an Antipode

It's pretty easy. The hardest part is finding your own latitude and longitude. The Lat/Long of Augusta, Maine is approximately 44.4° N, 69.7° W.

Once you have it:

1, Change the N to S (or, if you're in the Southern Hemisphere, the S to N)
2, Subtract the longitude from 180 and change the W to an E (or E to a W when appropriate)

So 44.4° N, 69.7° W becomes 44.4° S, 110.3° E.


And on another subject entirely here's my string bag before I unraveled most of it (don't worry, the resulting mess has since been re-knit). I took a picture because when it was laid flat you could see this cool swirling pattern:


ps Keep the comments coming! Woohoo! :D

Thanks for the tips on finding one's antipode, and Lisa, you will need to define your word (I dare not even try to spell it again) on Thursday.

Cheers,
