I also have a fun riddle like question that I thought would be fun:
A man walks one mile south, one mile west, and one mile north.
He ends up in the same place he started.
Where on planet Earth is he?
Can you find the second possible location?
And just north of the south pole, so the circumference is exactly one mile around!Answer to the riddle: Because earth is an oblate spheroid, at the north pole all 'directions' point south. Therefore, starting from the north pole, moving south, then west (along a parallel), then north would bring you back to the north pole.
