If you dig a hole straight down, where would you end up?

If you dig a hole straight down, where will you end up?  I live in Missouri.  I was always told that I would end up in China.   Not true.   For that to happen, I would need to start digging my hole in Argentina, not in Missouri.

How do I know?  I used an antipode finder.
