Philipp Lenssen, autor do ótimo blog Google Blogoscoped, lançou há alguns meses o livro 55 Ways to Have Fun With Google (55 Maneiras de se Divertir com o Google). Inclusive o livro está disponível para download em formato PDF para quem possa interessar.

Cortando o papo furado. O negócio é que serendipitosamente descobri que meu irmão foi citado no livro na dica número 31.

31. Dig a Hole Through Earth

“I wonder if I shall fall right through the earth! How funny it’ll seem to come out among the people that walk with their heads downward! The antipathies, I think—” (she was rather glad there was no one listening, this time, as it didn’t sound at all the right word) “—but I shall have to ask them what the name of the country is, you know. Please, Ma’am, is this New Zealand? Or Australia?” (and she tried to curtsey as she spoke—fancy, curtseying as you’re falling through the air! Do you think you could manage it?) “And what an ignorant little girl she’ll think me for asking! No, it’ll never do to ask: perhaps I shall see it written up somewhere.”
– Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Have you ever wondered where you would end up if you dug a hole right through earth? Wonder no more (at least if you got an internet connection): Luís Felipe Cipriani from Brazil developed a website (www.55fun.com/31.1) based on Google Maps which lets you click on any starting point on the globe. A small info box pops up on which you can click “Dig here.” Afterwards you discover the location you would come out at the other end.
