I find that fascinating and am amazed how it's stayed lit so long.

#2 10 months ago

Well if you want to know what happens if it stops you only have to take a look at Mars!

Or you can watch that documentary, "The Core", about when it started to slow down on earth.

#4 10 months ago

What? The earth is flat, so therefore, there is no core

#5 10 months ago

Or just watch the movie "The Core" to satisfy that Core Itch!

Don`t forget the sleestack running around in there.

Yes, there is a molten core. Bugs bunny confirmed this decades ago....

Bugs could also dig through the Earth from the U.S. and end up in China in a matter of seconds.

On a more serious/related note, did you guys ever notice that hydrogen is in the same class of elements as all the alkali metals, even though hydrogen is a nonmetal? It’s because it has the same electron orbital configuration as alkali metals do, and in the core of giant planets like Saturn or Jupiter, it’s compressed so tightly, that the hydrogen becomes metallic.

Every time I have that conversation with my girlfriend's cat she tells me I don't know how to play with the cat. I try and tell her this is why I am a dog person.

So what do we post next? Dog or cat pictures?

See here’s what I just don’t get. Say I start digging a hole like Bugs. I’m digging dowwards, below my feet. So when I get to China am I arriving feet first or head first ?

#16 10 months ago

I remember when I was a kid, the phrase about digging a hole all the way to China. It turns out, if I could dig the hole, I'd come up at the bottom of the Indian Ocean! https://www.antipodesmap.com/

I remember trying to link Atari's Middle Earth to this thread, but it wouldn't go.

I wonder how many licks it would take to get to the center?

#20 10 months ago

Uh one, uh two, uh three. Three.

#21 10 months ago

Watch that center man... It's a Doosey

Head first cuz when you get the the center you will have to start digging up.

Honestly, after seeing some of the other threads that got started today, I'm thinking this one's a win.

#25 10 months ago

Hay, hand digging to China is Science!

I was considering starting a spin off of this topic, was gonna call it: "The exterior of the earth is a crispy crust"

I do prefer crispier things over molten ones. . . unless its the center of a lava cake.

How bout "What's the proper etiquette when trying to quietly dig to the Earth's molten core?"

Seems like the science on the Earth's molten core is pretty settled.
The question is "Does Uranus have a molten core?"

I understand Uranus is very gaseous.

#32 10 months ago

I heard Uranus also has Klingons.

How is it so many of these threads always come back to Uranus?

#34 10 months ago

Maybe cause we all hang out at the Rear End Lounge...

And I thought it was a matter of probing the universe for answers to life's questions. . .

Apparently Uranus's core may contain Methane.

Hey people that like the butt thing are usually super clean about everything. Enemas and Super clean stuff, "amateurs are messy" said someone. Not to get personal but my first college girlfriend would only use the back door because she didn't want to worry about pregnancy and really liked it, so I WAS SPOILED and have been denied over the last 15 years (from the proper channels).

So like Alkali Lake, where Wolverine got his upgrade?

I'm still trying to figure out how the real deal ended up in the basement instead of the serious section.

I'm guessing it was around the time you decided to add a pole.
