When we hear the word ‘sandwich’, the first thing that strikes our mind is veggies or mashed potatoes sandwiched between two slices of bread. There are many types of sandwiches, be it chicken sandwich, potato sandwich or tomato sandwich and you must have had almost every type. But, what comes to your mind when you hear about ‘Earth sandwich’?
Feeling perplexed, right? It’s really astonishing to know that ‘Earth sandwich’ now exists in the world, all thanks to two guys from different corners of the world who have used ingenuity and two slices of bread to make an Earth sandwich.
The brave yet bizarre frontier was realised and achieved by Lee St John from Minnesota in the United States and Subash Luitel from Delhi, India.
Lee dreamt up the idea of placing a slice of bread on opposite sides of the world to create the ultimate sarnie and “four hours later” was messaging Subash, after being introduced by a friend.
Check out the conversation between Lee and Subash:
“I had just hoped it would get a few laughs from friends and get people thinking about bigger things they could do with the tools they already have,” Lee was quoted taking in the Press Association.
“I know to some it just seems ridiculous, it is, but it is also incredible that in just a few minutes I was able to meet a new person on the other side of the world, coordinate with them and actually pull something like that off.”
Since originally posting the lunch-inspired experiment on Facebook, Lee and Subash’s astonishing feat has been shared thousands of times across social media platforms.
Lee says he is now friends with Subash in India and is trying to help him achieve his dream of travelling to the US.
Isn’t it awesome that we have the technology to do this?
