RE: Super Continent
A well managed culture of anti-intellectualism subverting one of the few things americana that can be called a qualified success.

Australia is also moving north, and will probably plow up the archipelagos of Southeast Asia on its way to collision with Vietnam and east China.

Greenland is actually riding on the same plate as North America.  So Greenland is flying in formation with North America and moving away from Europe as the Atlantic continues to widen.

That's interesting. Everything changes in one way or another. Even slowly.

I did experiment with veganism. I tried to make a completely vegan meal once. 

But there just wasn't enough meat on those kids.
