(Goodnight for real)
The closest object with the strongest gravitational pull is always down. There is a point called the Lagrange Point partway between the earth and moon where their gravity cancels so there is no up or down at that point. If you launch a cannonball from the moon fast enough and it passes that point it starts falling toward the earth and could level entire cities upon impact. All the planets orbit in the same plane so North and South are sort of perpendicular to that, but I’m not sure historically why we started building globes with North on top. We could have started mapping the solar system upside down from what we currently do and it would be just as accurate.
Mind = Blown… Sea, and this is why his forum is great…
Also at the center of the earth every direction is up.
I’m leaning towards basket weaving in the rain if we can’t rent a swimming pool. Out of curiosity how does one weave a basket.? Also out of curiosity why does one weave a basket?
I mean I don’t think I need a basket, but maybe I just don’t know what I’m missing out on.
I read the article. It did not have a lot to do with baskets.
We make baskets because no one else will… We’re he basket weavers they need… AND deserve…
I can get behind that.
Brooke you were supposed to go to bed…shame (I was also supposed to sleep in…shame)
As for basket weaving…I tend to get hurt a lot, so I’m afraid I will get a lot of cuts on my hands. As long as someone has an underwater first aid kit I should be fine
We’ll put that on the list of materials we’re going to need. It occurs to me that we should avoid having a meeting in the ocean. Kristen’s blood would get into the water, and we’d have to fight off hungry sharks armed with nothing but baskets.
Fun Fact: Before Julia Child started cooking she worked in the Office of Strategic Services during WWII. She was basically Peggy Carter, and one of the first recipes she ever helped write was for shark repellent.
We should start small, though… Let’s start with basket weaving in the rain and we’ll move our way up to the ocean… By that time, Kristen’ll be great at it and we won’t have a problem
Sounds like a plan, but what am I going to do with all this shark repellent? I doubled the recipe!
Keep it… You never know when a Sharknado may happen…
Maybe I could donate it to Benoit Lecomte. He’s going to need all the shark repellent he can get his hands on.
Yeah, that’d probably be the right thing to do…
I don’t know maybe we’d just be enabling him. Swimming across oceans feels like a bad habit.
But I can’t swim well…
You don’t need to swim if we’re supposed to be underwater. You just need to be able to breathe.
But I could probably get you some carrot-themed pool floaties if that makes you feel more comfortable.
Mostly we just need to be able to sink well for the basket weaving, so I think you’ve got that covered.
Out of curiosity how close do you live to the ocean? I thought living in proximity to a large body of water gave you magical swimming powers?
Are you asking Carrot?
Magical swimming powers aren’t associated with ocean proximity, but magical healing powers and the power of song are tied with unreasonably long, blonde hair.
This is getting more interesting all the time, and our list of materials keeps growing longer. I really like the idea that we’d be turning in receipts for pool floaties in an organization called the Assassin’s Guild.
I am asking carrot. (Mostly because Vermont is landlocked and I need all the information I can get).
Asking how close he is to the ocean provides ample room for him to avoid a direct answer.
For instance, I am closer in proximity to the ocean than I am to Japan, but farther away than the width of a standard no. 2 pencil.
I am close to Japan in spirit, but I can’t find a number two pencil for the life of me.
