How to make an earth sandwich

  1. Find out where the other side of the world is – go here for help.
  2. Get one person on one side of the world and one person on the other side of the world.
  3. Each person gets a slice of bread and at exactly the same time, place it on the ground.
  4. And there you have it – one freaky earth sandwich!

If you have ever made an earth sandwich, please send me details. That is such a freaky (and difficult) thing to do. I’d love to hear your story.

Update 17 October 2010

Well, I looked into the earth sandwich concept later and… I’ve discovered a (smallish) world of people (with time on their hands!) trying to create the ultimate earth sandwich. There have been several attempts to make it happen and only a few successes. It’s probably harder than I thought, coordinating each person on each side of the world with the same kind of bread (what kind of sandwich would it be with different types of bread?!) and getting the timing right.

So here’s the website all about the Earth sandwich challenge – hats off to you people – .

These guys have even produced a how-to video…
