First, that question is incorrectly worded; it should be written "Does North Carolina have a fall line?" Someone originally gave a wrong "no" answer, with an incomprehensibe explanation, but I think that I'm editing all that out here. Yes, North Carolina has a fall line: it is the boundary between the coastal plain in the east and the Piedmont Plateau in the central part of the state. It is a northeast-to-southwest trending zone, running from roughly northeast of Roanoke Rapids southwesterly through around Rockingham. The fall line in the southeastern U.S. is really a zone, and not so neatly defined as it is in the mid-Atlantic states.

How deep in North Carolina should we bury the water line from the house to the outside meter?
The water line must be below the frost line... so I would go 48" and be SURE to pad the line.... best to put it inside a larger plastic schedule 40 pipe to prevent crush and stabbing by rocks, shovels.

Do you cross the international date line from North Carolina to tel-aviv israel?
Since the earth is spherical (round like a ball), you can always reach any place by way of two different directions . . . even the corner store. For several reasons, however, savvy travelers usually choose the direction that results in the shorter trip, which is why you typically take the 1-mile route to the store instead of the 24,999-mile route.
Similarly, you can certainly cross the International Date Line on a trip from Raleigh to Tel Aviv if you want to, but it's almost 19,000 miles farther than going the other way.
