Walk Hard

Jules: I'll just walk the earth.
Vincent: What'cha mean walk the earth?
Jules: You know, walk the earth, meet people... get into adventures. Like Caine from "Kung Fu."
-Jules' post-retirement plan in
Pulp Fiction
What would happen if you just started walking in a straight line in any direction (North, South, Northeast... whatever)? What would you pass through? Tall Eye can show you. (via Information Junk)

You might be surprised (I was anyways) by the path you get on your map. This uses Great Circle Navigation, so unless you are starting out on the Equator, the "straight line" you are walking on looks pretty curved on a regular 2-D map.
