    Well, it wasn't a coincidence before we measured distance in metres. The French originated the meter in the 1790s as one/ten-millionth of the distance from the equator to the north pole along a meridian through Paris.


    Multiply by 0.4572 to get cubits per second

    ^ Because it's along the equatorial bulge, it's summit is the farthest point from the Earth's center?

    Never heard of Mt. Chimborazo as running for highest mountain; what you say makes sense, but it's ultimately down to those that define the parameters and write the record books.

    Well, technically, yes there is some light there, but your rationale is totally wrong. Absolute darkness or blackness is the absence of light. We can see the shadow because we can't see what's actually there.
    So my point is technically true but my rationale is totally wrong? Do you ever read over your replies before posting?

    It's impossible for a human to cast absolute black or a shadow absent from any light so your reply is nonsense.

    Put a coin on the ground in broad daylight and cast your shadow over it, does the coin completely vanish? No it doesn't, because its still being bombarded with photons from the sun, albeit a lesser amount.

    ...Imbecile!

    .....and never contradict or question scientific convention.

    Well, a point to ponder about mountainous things, Olympus Mons on Mars is the tallest mountain/volcano in the Solar System.

    A human standing on the summit would only see Olympus Mons to the horizon, not beyond it.






    Which, is probably safe to say, a human will experience before the end of this century, probably with a decade or two to spare.

    Here's one to consider.

    What would the sum total of every turd you've ever taken look like?

    As big as Wales?

    Why, cause you'd only scale it 3 times before breakfast?

    Oh, I see what you're asking. I'm not sure Pangea included old Antarctica, so maybe no fossils. There's been a few fantasy and conspiracy theories about alien artifacts.
    There's also been a couple of expeditions to drill down into a vast underground lake. The first team to attempt it got really pissed off with a later Russian team because the expectation was that the lake may contain ancient living bacteria and the Russian team weren't taking precautions not to infect any water found with their new-world bacteria.

    Heisenberg was different to all other scientists. While all others tried to prove they were right, he tried to prove he was uncertain, while schroedinger wasn't sure if his cat even existed.

    I believe the highest summit of any mountain is below sea level.

    Einstein, Pascal, and Newton decided to play hide and seek. Einstein covered his eyes and began counting, Pascal ran off to hide, and Newton just drew a 1m square and sat in the middle of it. When Albert opened his eyes, he saw Newton and said, "I found you, Newton", and Newton replied, "No, you've found Pascal".
