There's a famous riddle about a hunter who walks one mile south, one mile east, and one mile north and ends up right back where he started. He sees a bear and shoots it. What color is the bear? The accepted answer is white; the hunter is at the North Pole and the bear is a polar bear. However, someone recently discovered that the North Pole isn't the only starting point that can meet those conditions.
Name another spot on the globe from which a person can walk one mile south, one mile east, and one mile north and still find himself right back at his starting point.
There is more than one possible answer.
There is an infinite number of points on the globe that can satisfy the given conditions. If you draw a circle around the South Pole with a radius of approximately 1 + 1/ 2π miles (1.16 miles) from the pole, you can start from any point within the circle. This means that your walk south will take you to very close to the South Pole, your walk east will take you on a complete circle around the pole, and your walk north will take you back where you started.
