Maybe I'm missing something, but Gross lost some credibility with me when he said
<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:]One Earth day is about 24 hours long. Over the course of a year, the length of a day normally changes gradually by one millisecond. It increases in the winter, when the Earth rotates more slowly, and decreases in the summer, Gross has said in the past.[/QUOTE]
Wouldn't winter in the Northern hemisphere be offset by summer in the South? Or does the top of the planet trade with the bottom as to how fast it spins? :smirk:

"Wow!,50 states - when did that happen?".

Yes, Greg, that is exactly what happens. Since I live near the equator, I know the airfares to Rio change according to how much closer Rio gets as the two hemisphere change rotational speed.

Making the crossing by boat is a bear!! The water where the two hemispheres
meet is mighty rough!

And did you know high tide occurs all over the globe at the same time?
So does low tide. Where does all that water go during low tide?

..and: "Alaska and Hawaii are found in little boxes off the coast of California."

An actual answer to a college level geography test (as far as I recall).

Looks like CNN's competitors have their own problems:

Even the most seasoned reporters make honest slips of the tounge - some funnier than others. One of my favorites was a certain lady "journalist" who indicated that Abe Lincoln was a Founding Father (while she was mocking someone else's anser to a related question).

Actually, that's due to global warming and the recent record cold temps.

See, the plates moved further north to colder climates cause that molten core was cookin' hotter cause of all that global warming..

That's how Ben moved the island on "Lost".


ooops, I better shut up....

Wife and I love it. Can't watch this season as we both are out on Tuesdayd. Gonna buy it when it comes out and watch it together. I don't like watching ~ANYTHING~ without my wife.

Gonna miss, hot, dirty, sweaty Kate when it's all over.

I don't know why, but I don't like Evangeline w/ makeup on. I much prefer her "seasoned" look. ~VERY~ few women can pull that off !!!
