It really makes me sad that you have to spell out for people something that is so basic and natural.

We all know it growing up but somewhere this basic knowledge of our symbiosis get's lost or challenged by adults who think they can reinvent our species merely by redefinition. Good luck with that.

I think they are trying to be clever and play on the term China Syndrome, where the fuel melts all the way through the earth to it's Antipodal point.

But since this is Japan, the author speculates that the antipodal point is somewhere in Uruguay, which it is not (it's kinda close though).
