Anywhere On Earth

"Anywhere on Earth" (aka "AoE") is a phrase given to the last place a given date can exist on earth and is located on the direct opposite side of the earth from Greenwich, England, the home of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), now called Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).  The closest lands that are just east of this International Date Line are Howland Island and Baker Island.  So if you need to turn in that assignment by the end of the day, you can literally make the deadline by submitting it from one of these uninhabited islands.
