A No-Dav Hemisphere

I realized a couple days ago, that if you spin that little globe on my site just so, there's an entire hemisphere of Earth that I haven't been on. For all I know it doesn't exist. It's mostly the southern hemisphere (although I have been south of the equator, in French Polynesia); one of these days I'm going to Antarctica, so that'll fix that.
