Things to do with Wolfram|Alpha when you're bored: Look up antipodal locations

Here's another thing you can do with Wolfram|Alpha when bored: Look up places on Earth that are diametrically opposite to you.

Just key in 'my antipode' or just 'antipode'. For more fun, type in another place, for example 'los angeles antipode'. And Wolfram|Alpha will tell you what place is opposite to that place on Earth, and its co-ordinates.
