No, because if you go far enough West you'll be back East.
You see, LH, the Earth is shaped like a ball. A bit of a misshapen ball, like one that's been played with by several generations of kids and then given to the dogs as a "fetch" toy, but a ball none the less. So if you mark any spot on that ball and draw a straight line on the surface away from it in any direction you'll end up back where you started! Isn't that cool? It's just one of the wonders of what I call a "sphere."
