#1 Oh, yeah? Well there's a chunk of Arkansas that floated up from south of the equator someplace and got sandwiched into the rest of the North American Plate. That's why Arkansas is the only place within a thousand miles with diamond mines.
No, I can't find the link - it was in an old Scientific American article, before it went communist.

But Arkansas /= scuba gear, Bobby.

#3 The new study suggests that Mauritia became detached when Madagascar and India split up
I see a whole new field of social work: geologic-family counseling.

#4 As opposed to the historic one, presumably.
Grammar, people. It's not just a good idea.

#6 Pappy is trying to bring back Pangaea Muggsy. I for one say they separated for a good reason, there were serious rifts among them. Working with them has a hole would be like jumping thru a Ring of Fire.

#7 I had a Madagascar once....
6 miles per gallon in the city and 12 mpg on the highway and it burned three quarts of oil a week.
I gave Madame Blavatsky a call on her higher plane of existence, but I could only reach Willim Q. Judge and he said and I quote here "Theosophy is that ocean of knowledge which spreads from shore to shore of the evolution of sentient beings; unfathomable in its deepest parts, it gives the greatest minds their fullest scope, yet, shallow enough at its shores, it will not overwhelm the understanding of a child."

#8 Ahah! It's Fabled Mu.
No, it's the fabled Lemuria. This is exactly where Lemuria was supposed to be. (And it was Lemuria, not Mu, which so fascinated Madame Blavatsky.)
Unfortunately, this continent is apparently too old to be Lemuria, since it predates the appearance of mammals. I am disappoint.
