On many of your pages you offer this: "If you were to burrow down through the Earth from ..."

It would be clearer and more accurate were you to write: "Were you to burrow down through the CENTER of the Earth from ...".

Best regards.

I think you could be right. Maybe I will change "come out" to "emerge" as well.
Thanks a lot.
