Is it not something with the nuclear core that goes through the earth all the way to China or whatever that is?

That's the one!
(Sorry, that question just came into my head because it was on Celebrity Millionaire last year, and Johnny Vegas answered it by calling Paul Sinha as his phone-a-friend. Also I have a copy of the Testaments right beside my desk. :hap:)
