The Fremont Center of the Universe milepost has information about how many miles it is to other spots around the globe. It is part of a community campaign to designate the Fremont neighborhood as "the center of the universe."

Center of the Universe

There are three signs -

"Entering the Republic of Fremont, the center of the Universe, set your watch back five minutes."
"Entering the Republic of Fremont, the center of the Universe, set your watch forward five minutes."
"Entering the Republic of Fremont, the center of the Universe, throw away your watch."

Center of the Universe

As I was cruising your, shall we say... "insomniac's web dream" set of sights I realised that when you went through Seattle you COMPLETELY bypassed the center of the universe -- Fremont. Seriously! as you enter the area there is a sign that says "Entering the Republic of Fremont, the center of the Universe, set your watch back five minutes."
