    I just heard the term watching a show about Atlantis and the term came up.
    What say you?
    I say no, because nowhere does not really exist.
    Everywhere I go, I am somewhere, no?

    Have you ever been to West Texas?

    If you can find the very center of West Texas, that's the middle of nowhere.

    I think you can be nowhere, but not in the middle of it because if it's nowhere it doesn't have any boundaries, otherwise it would be somewhere, so a middle of it doesn't exist. Or Amarillo, that's pretty damn close

    Beat me to it, I'm in El Paso now, and it's vast nothingness really got me on my run this morning. Hopeless, intoxicating, empty...the best place in the US to truly hide out. The Lithium doesn't hurt...

    Oh man, there are lots of areas in NV that make west TX look crowded and too modern.

    Language would be so boring if it were only literal- devoid of any literary constructs.

    It's easy to get to. Nowhere is flat. We know this. Simply fold nowhere in half, make a crease, then lay it out flat again. Travel across it until you reach the crease. VoilĂ !
