He challenged his viewers to create the first "Earth sandwich." (This has apparently now happened.) 

But the coolest thing about his site is the "FIND THE OPPOSITE" tool, which allows you to pinpoint the place on Earth that is opposite your own location.

The opposite of New York City is a spot in the middle of the Indian Ocean. So I guess I need a boat.
