Antipodes

I learned this word when I was in high school. According to Dictionary.com, it means: places diametrically opposite to each other on the globe.

My little ClustrMap (see the bottom of this page) got me thinking the antipodes of Minnesota. Click here for a close-up of my ClusterMap.

Anyway, it turns out that the antipodes of my spot on Earth is a spot in the Indian Ocean. Closest land is an island called "French Southern & Antarctic Lands." Even with the Google satellite version of the map, it doesn't look inhabited.
