In the spirit of academic debate purely for fun (and perhaps a bit of nonsense), and because it was suggested by bemahan 912363:

Where are the four corners of the world?

The Flat Earth Society believed that the world was indeed flat. Newfoundland Tourism claims that the Flat Earth Society thought that Newfoundland and Labrador was one of the four corners of the world. Being a Canucklehead, and an adopted Newfie, and because for all it's faults this is a really cool place - I'm inclined to agree.

So... open to debate... where are the four corners of the world?
