Continental drift? The Earth is moving?

And I thought the Earth was flat! What the...??  ???

Lol Mike, nope, and I am disappointed you didn't know that.

Ok all accusations and nastiness aside, I decided to try this method in a new revised manner taking all the updated elements into play.

First I had to make a US shaped dough ball, just whipped it up between posts. I know it's not the whole continent, but I am limited in my pizza stone size. Then, to ensure I was covering more than one surface area I applied 3 rows of plastic people standing on the dough surface held together by a rope in ''tug of war'' formation. My conclusions will be made from either a broken rope, or 1/2 the people fallen on their faces. If the second occurs I will then measure the drag marks the bodies made through the dough over time. This should prove to be fascinating and educational. Here's the dough so far...

It is, Mike.  In fact, it's 51799081561521 inches in diameter with a thickness factor of 0.10; and there's no escaping the anchovies in the sauce.

I knew it!!

So we all going to fall off the face of the Earth if the continents keep drifting apart. That's the end of the world! I gotta go and make more dough before everything ends and panic sets in!!  :'(

Be back later...
