Original Starting post for this thread:
I was trying to remember which eggs in the refrigerator were hard boiled and which were not, when an idea for a thread topic occurred to me.

Does anybody have any fun facts to share? You know, those always fun and often useless facts that just might come in handy to know someday?

For example....

Did you know that if you were to take all of the veins from your body and lay them end to end along the equator that you would die?

My dad, me, two of my sons, my ex wife, and my wife's best friend all in September.

My oldest son is August 26, so we usually throw him in there, too.

You know what we were doing on New Year's...

The moon was part of earth. It was knock into the orbit that it is now by a major meteor strike. The moon is not a planet as you are describing.

3D modeling if fun to do. Excel has excellent 3D modeling tools.

Ncal...

About the moon.

The moon was Molten for hundreds/million of years. Then (similar to earth) as it cooled it formed a crust, the crust got thicker and thicker until it is a solid rock.

As it cooled and the crust formed, as it was bombarded with small/big rocks the crust would Crack and the molten core would flow to the surface.

Interesting enough, did you know a mine I belive in Africa has a vein of metal that when looked at through a 3d model actually looks like a metal bowl. There is a solid metal deposit that is mostly Gold/silver/lead/copper that is "feet thick"

Scientists believe a meteor stuck the earth that contained these metals. It created such heat that there was a molten mass that took millions of years to cool and solidify. As it did the metal layer gradually formed.

Ps... nobody was around that long ago so these things although make sense have no way of being 100% correct.

Cheers
