    Blinky Non-fun non-facts

    Deepest hole dug in the Earth is 7.5 miles.

    While data produced by the Kola drilling project continues to be analyzed, the drilling itself was forced to stop in the early 1990s when unexpectedly high temperatures were encountered. While the temperature gradient conformed to predictions down to a depth of about 10,000 feet, temperatures after this point increased at a higher rate until they reached 180 C (or 356 F) at the bottom of the hole. This was a drastic difference from the expected 100 C (212 F). Also unexpected was a decrease in rock density after the first 14,800 feet. Beyond this point the rock had greater porosity and permeability which, paired with the high temperatures, caused the rock to behave more like a plastic than a solid and made drilling near impossible.

    Nor is it round (or spherical if you prefer).

    Another Fun Fact: Earth is not hollow.

    Don't think I've said Dinosaurs don't exist, after all, in the bible and other cultures there's mention of Dragons. But there are a lot of questionable things worthy of further research.


    Anyway, here's an interesting one.



    Pyramid power affects water (gives a tap and it freezes before your eyes), among other things.

    There's a hole in Siberia that leads directly to hell. It's 3 inches wide.



    edit : This is of course a quote from the fact sphere from Portal who shows up in Poker Night 2.

    OK so what is the explanation of this video? Pyramid magic? Is there a different explanation?

    Also for the OP, it's very interesting. Not sure if there was a specific point in the OP but it's definitely interesting that the temp got higher than expected and solid rock turned into hot molten putty.

    The big question is how the hollow-Earth civilizations have learned to cope with that.

    A hole in Siberia that goes to Detroit. That is a fun fact!

    And they bolted it up instead of digging a canal to the ocean so it can be flooded.

    I was born there and only pussies don't stand up for the town they were born in.

    How many times have you been there?

    So called 'Pyramid Magic' was discredited years ago. I also heard that the Russian scientists stopped drilling down into the Earth's crust after they heard over their microphones what sounded like human screams coming from deep below... This naturally scared the shit out of them and they stopped the operation. That's what I read anyway.

    With regards the city of Detroit, here in England we constantly hear about how bad it is and how it's one of the worst cities in the US. If this is wrong I'll happily change my views, and you're right synbiosfan, people should stand up for their hometown.

    Something to do with negative ions according to this video;



    Haven't really researched this myself, but looking forward to trying some of these things for myself. Would better explain all the fascination with pyramids by all kinds of cultures in the past.

    It's very interesting because if it's the furthest we dug, how do we know what inside the Earth looks like?



    Even stranger, the idea of what's inside the Earth was conceptualized before technology. But even with technology, what technology can be used to verify this?

    Why be so quick to place faith in what mainstream media teaches when everyone can do these simple tests for themselves. Here are 3 other fun examples of someone trying Pyramid power for themselves;

    It's not what you know it's what you can prove, Mega.

    This is the damn last straw. I've had enough. I gave you way too many chances and you've obviously not cared enough to consider the position you've put me in. Go out somewhere, find a job and maybe learn to be a better human being because as of this thread, you just plain fucking suck.
