IIRC the Earth is maintained on its axis by a long bolt
and a cap nut.  You could simply disassemble, invert,
and reassemble.   Of course now the printing is upside
down, but who's to say which way is right?

I probably couldn't tell this "barr" joke on the list without cleaning it
up and that would ruin it. And it's too cute to ruin

A bear and a rabbit happen to be next to each other taking a
dump in the woods. The bear turns to the rabbit and says "Do
you find the shit sticks to your fur ?". "No" says the rabbit. So the
bear wiped his arse with the rabbit

Ok I just did a quick experiment (took a glass of water and added rock and
sand) The rock and sand fell to the bottom, proving they are heavier than
water. so with the larger regions of water bellow the equator, the southern
section would be lighter, making the northern section heavier, and we all
know that top heavy things when supported in the middle will right them
selves.... So North is Down and AU is on the top of the world, and the top of
Au is infact Tasmania.....


Lol

I think you're on to something, but your experiment could use a little
refinement.  You need to use a glass of water, a rock, and an ice cube.
Remember there is land at the south pole, and only ice at the north pole.

Now add the rock and the ice to the glass of water and note their position.  You
will notice that the rock, a scaled model of the south pole, sits at the bottom
of the glass.  While the ice, a scaled model of the north pole, floats at the
top of the glass.  Thus the correct orientation of the globe is north up.

So if she weighs less than a duck, she is made of wood, and therefore ...

I tried this but got different results.

First, I added an ice cube to the water and a little vodka. This did make
my head lighter. Then I repeated the experiment with less water and more
vodka.  Fairly soon, my feet were so light that they were sticking up in
the air while my head suddenly got so heavy, it dropped and hit the floor.
With such inconclusive results, the experiment must be written off.  I'll
retry later with different fluids and report back. Keep up the good work.

While this is an interesting experiment, all you actually proved is
that the rock is less boyant than water.  Here is a thought
experiment for you, to prove my point:

Step 1: compare density of steel to density of water.
Step 2: insert a steel ball bering in glass of water
Step 3: insert large Battle ship in glass of water.
Step 4: notice that glass of water no longer exists, due to a battle
ship being on top of it.
Step 5: now insert battleship in water.
Step 6: notice that previously mentioned ship, while weighing several
hundred tons, does not sink

Flotation is a function of boyancy, not weight.  Your rock, if it had
had an air pocket in it, as much of the rock formation in the
northern hemisphere has, (due to mining along with natural caves)
would not have sunk.

Don't you just love it when you don't check the return address
to personal mail ? It was meant to go to Bob Barr only (hence
the "barr" reference) not the list. Apologies to anyone offended.
Commiserations in particular to the rabbit, hope you can still
get a date

I thought that might have been the case.

No offense taken (on my part, at least). It's not as if that was the
first time I've heard that one. Puns on my last name are quite
plentiful.

Unfortunately, if the date is particularly successful, the rabbit ends
up dieing. (I hope that's not too obscure for the younger folks on the
list.) :-)

Here's a fun one...  Worked for a dot-com some years ago
and they were taking the whole company to the Bahamas
for a 5-day vacation.  However, it was in September
near the end of hurricane season, and the trip had to
be postponed because a hurricane actually rolled into
the area.

Soon after the postponement email came another email
from an employee, who had apparently intended the
email for his mother.  His English wasn't good, but
I clearly remember the email stated "Hey Ma, about
the trip, I was wondering why they were taking us at
this time of year.  Cheap prices, that is why."

It went to the whole consulting division.  Not sure
how he managed that.

Needless to say, another email, this time with an
apology, followed soon after.

Cheers,
-Neil.

I know, so sad. They probably wouldn't be impressed that they've
got lucky paws either. Not lucky for them
