Digging to China

Everyone knows that if you dig down vertically from the UK, and somehow avoid the molten rock, you'll pop out in Australia.
Nope.
You'd better pack your water wings, in fact, as the point directly opposite us is south-south-west of New Zealand, in the Antarctic Indian Ocean.

Wendy Carlos offers a map of local nadirs (antipodes).  It's striking how few places have terrestrial (i.e. on land) antipodes, rather than being opposite patches of seabed.

Hey, that's pretty cool.
