Anyone up for this?

Geohashing

Requires some reading, check out the comic for a shorter version. Basically it creates a random coordinate for an area and you can go and you can go on an adventure to find it.
Interesting part is that it creates the coordinate based on the date and the DOW price (using that just as something that'll be random) so it comes out the same for anyone in that area. So every saturday at 4pm xkcd readers will go and see who else is there.
