  • Um.. I cant tell if people are joking but the equator doesnt have an east and west side..it has a north and south side. sorry if Im being square. Hard to tell with the written word.

    You can tell that pic is fake though because the equator is red. I have a globe right here to prove it.

  • Well, Vet, if you take that globe and turn it on it's side, it's clearly an east-west equator now.

    If I'm not mistaken it's not only red, but several miles wide.

    It's not paint. It's a globe-long plastic adhesive.

  • That's not the equator. Everybody knows the equator is really just duct tape from when God put the world together.
