The glorious earth has punished me appropriately for my mortal sin of voting Republican in 2004. Yes, I know. This is a horrible crime against the state, and the goons are en route to take me to the gulag. Here is video evidence of the blatant attack:
I sense a great distubance in the farce.

The tease is quite titillating.
I'm still amused by the randomly discovered fact that if you start the trailer for "Inconvenient Truth" and "Play that Funky Music White Boy" at the same time, the two coincide perfectly. Sort of like "Wizard of Oz" and Dark Side of the Moon.

James the 'almost ran' city councilorBefore we all get too amused by the looming continental drift crisis we need to be aware of the imminent dangers of Tidal lock.
I took the liberty of making a brief video to explain the dangers here:
Can the rotation crisis be helped if I send my spousal unit to drive 20 miles to the east and walk home?
Actually it's a trick question. I live in New York, so 20 miles to the east would be salt water all around. But if it's required to stop global crisis, that's the sacrifice my spousal unit will have to make, won't she? We all must make sacrifices, right? I'll just have to live with it for the rest of my life, proud of the fact that I helped to save the planet.
So in essence, if you can get your Ex spouse to drive 20 miles east into the sea, it is worth the points of a current spouse going forty miles.
(These results may vary from ex spouse to ex spouse and were determined by measuring the mean mass and girth of ex spouses over current ones.)
By the way, to register here I needed to borrow the Rosetta stone. The Egyptians are less amused than the last time one of us borrowed it. Maybe those archaeologists were also vision impaired I dunno.

It's quite simple. When you opened The People's Cube, our state-run server injected your computer with a team of Carter nano rabbits who analyzed your system, found the video above, and determined that you were some sort of a scientist. Hence the Greek symbols. Had they determined you were an ACORN activist, your screen would have displayed food stamps of various denominations.
This Anthropogenic Continental Drift thing. It's true. The Democratic Science of the people can prove it.
Between 1700 and 1799, at about the time the industrial revolution was getting ready for glorious puberty, there were just 34 cataclysmic volcanic eruptions in the world... you know... the really big ones that flatten trees and capitalist resorts built to exploit nature.
Between 1800 and 1899, when the evil capitalist industrial revolution was realy getting some steam up, there were 41.
And between 1900 and 1999, when the exploiting factories of the imperialist anglo-american cabal were at their height, and as the continents drifted faster and faster apart, there were 69.
Really. I'm not making this up. I left that to the capitalists dogs at the Smithsonian. (No. Really! I'm NOT making this up.)
And since 2000, the downtrodden earth is exploding at the rate of one cataclysmic volcanic eruption a year.
This is such complete and irrefutable proof that the scientific debate about ACD is now over.
It is therefore up to our governments to do something about it. Clearly, we need a Motion Trading Scheme (MTS) that imposes a tax on everything that moves, and then redistributes that tax by paying a subsidy to anything that moves so that nothing that moves will be out of pocket, and a whole new pillar of the bureaucracy can be built to handle the complex calculations.
It's a step closer to a perfect utopia.
Now lets see if my avatar works.
Pollution from volcanoes makes the Cap & Trade plan ridiculous because compared to volcano eruptions, all man-made and cow-made pollution looks like a drop in the ocean. But if we harness the volcano power we can first and foremost make polluting US factories look more like fish in the barrel.

Cap and trade is the perfect solution. We cap the volcanoes with rotating vents and trade the inertia to help stop tidal lock. In fact, we can continue the process to shorten the work day as per union fantasy #1 by reversing tidal-lock and speeding up the rotation of the planet. Once it has reached it's desired length at the equator, say 3 hours with a one hour lunch before sunset, we can reverse the vents and hold steady. Total cost? roughly 200% of the entire GDP of the USA till 2209.
You have clearly been spending too much time with the capitalist imperialists.
To suggest an action (creating turbo jets on the volcanoes) that actually results in something happening (the ending of Tidal Lock) is undemocratic and clearly against the will of the collective.
Remember... the bureaucracy wishes to create a process. They care not for outcomes.
Here, in the People's Republic of Australia, we have no such aspirations. (And no volcano either... but that isnt our fault.) We see purity in the MTS, and care little for your bourgeois efforts to once again exploit nature for your own purpose.
Quote:Here, in the People's Republic of Australia, we have no such aspirations. (And no volcano either... but that isnt our fault.)
THIS IS AN OUTRAGE! Why does the glorious collective allow our Antipodal Brothers and Sisters labor without proper volcanic support? I CALL FOR AN IMMEDIATE REDISTRIBUTION OF VULCANISM TO THE DEPRIVED AUSTRALIANS!

And Marshal Pupovich, here in the antipodes, we have little DHMO though we understand why it causes such concern. We are, however, surrounded by Dihydrosodium Monoxochloride, an insidious liquid extensively used by the capitalist imperialist military industrial complex as a fluid tranport medium for mobile weapons platforms. It is sometimes known by its commercial name of d-moxychlor. This insidious poison can leave a flaky residue on the skin hours after even the briefest contact, and is poisonous if ingested. It also causes extreme eye irritation and can harbour a very long list of deadly organisms, including one that is flesh eating.

Quote:The continents, and the tectonic plates they are attached to, shift about and grind into each other, causing mountains to be rucked up into the sky and volcanoes to erupt, and earthquakes, and other geologic shit of this nature.
What you may not know is that this process, while unstoppable, can be slowed down tremendously. We can save lives this way, and more importantly, beachfront property. But we haven't been doing it.
Our inaction in saving lives- and some really sweet bungalows- is tragic. Tragic.
How can we slow down this destructive process?
One word, friends: friction.
How do we enhance the natural friction that keeps these gigantic continents from slippy-sliding all over the place, crushing everyone that you love and burying their wicked beetchin' summer rental cottages in hot lava?
We need to extract the dangerous lubricants that are hiding deep in the Earth.
Right now, under the ground, possibly thousands of feet under your very...uh, feet...are vast deposits of a black, menacingly slippery substance that scientists refer to as 'oil' [TX pron: awl].
We gotta get that shat out of there, stat! Our recalcitrance in this regard is frustrating and downright dangerous. The time to act is now.
No matter the cost, humans must find a way- with specialized pipes and pumps, perhaps- to reduce these vast deposits of 'oil' that imperil us all.
Who knows? We may even find a use for it.
Our Scientists are currently investigating how anthracite deposits may also be accelerating Anthropogenic Continental Drift.
Don't worry, enough grant money and they'll come up with something. Because that's how science is done, old boy.

But you want to know about lava. Alas, all I could find was the snip below (under the heading "Draining Bathtubs/Toilets"), but hey! It’s Wikipedia! What more reliable source could I need? BTW, I love entries from idiots desperately seeking immediate help from the masses to pass an exam.

Quote:The Coriolis effect DO HAVE a clear influence on rotation of flushing bathtubs, toilets and mud volcanoes (and magmatic volcanoes as well). However, velocity of fluid, just as the article says, needs to be taken into account. This means that if mud is very fluid, the spiral line clockwise (Northern Hemisphere, of course) almost dissapears. A recent volcano in the Eastern region of Congo, in Africa (Nyamuragira Volcano, north of Lake Kivu), shows also de Coriolis effect, since the lava flow was not very fast (in this case), as it is possible to see in satellite images from Google Earth. This volcano has two diferent lava flows: the southern flow shows deviation towards left (we should remember it is in the Southern Hemisphere) being a proof of the Coriolis effect. However, the northern flow looks like not being affected by the Coriolis effect, maybe because of topography: most of this flow is by the eastern wall of the Rift Valley, which avoids deviation towards the left, at least, in part of it. --Fev 00:06, 3 August 2006 (UTC). Seen from the top, a mud volcano has a similar shape than the Iceland low pressure system showed in the article's first image. However, the movement of mud is clockwise (from top to the bottom around), since it is, actually, similar to a high pressure system. Just this fact is the proof that the Coriolis effect determines deviation of a straight line due to Earth's rotation: deviation is the same either in high pressure systems than in low pressure systems (towards the right in the Northern Hemisphere and to the left in the Southern Hemisphere. --Fev 01:08, 3 August 2006 (UTC). --Fev 03:08, 3 August 2006 (UTC)
Would you know anyone in the Southern Hemisphere who owns a lava lamp?
