Which Extremity of the World Are You?
YOU ARE THE NILE
At 4145 miles from your furthest extremity to the Mediterranean Sea, you outdo the Amazon to become the world’s longest river. The piranhas hate you.
Beneath you lies an underground river with six times your volume. You kept this remarkably quiet for several thousand years. In fact, you’re full of mystery; your source wasn’t discovered until 1862. You’re also full of water. And crocodiles. And nuclear pharaoh machines that run on light and can see through time.

Ohmygoodness! I’m the Atacama Desert! How can that be?! I hate the desert. I loathe heat and I can’t abide places with no water. Oh, woe is me! How shall I go on, sob, sob..? ~;^)

I also am the Nile. I guess that question about wandering the mediterranean sea is what did it for me. I’ve been to eygpt and crossed the nile river and I’ve wandered the mediterranean, I would love to do it once more.

“YOU ARE VOSTOK, ANTARCTICA
The world’s coldest place. You reached a low of -88.3 degrees Celsius, recorded at the convenient Russian research station on top of you, a level of intense cold that would not look out of place on Mars. At this temperature mercury is very firmly a solid, making normal thermometers useless; radon gas condenses into liquid; and a few degrees colder would have carbon dioxide freezing out of thin air. Added to this, your average temperature is a trifling -55 degrees, the only visible rocks within 600 miles are meteorites, the ice freezes eyelids shut and clothing to the body within fifteen seconds of exposure and sometimes even splits teeth open. You are, in a word, cold.”
I always knew that 😀
