Earth in 250 Million Years

From Astronomy Picture of the Day comes this look into the future of Pangeia that closely resembles its past...

About 250 million years from now, the plates are again projected to reposition themselves so that a single landmass dominates.

The above simulation from the PALEAOMAP Project shows this giant landmass: Pangea Ultima.

At that time, the
>Atlantic Ocean will be just a distant memory, and whatever beings inhabit Earth will be able to walk from North America to Africa.

Souter Cried Repeatedly After Bush v. Gore

Unfortunately, he didn't resign too, as he threatened to do while blubbering like the momma's boy he turned out to be:

According to Jeffrey Toobin’s new book on the Supreme Court, Justice David Souter nearly resigned in the
wake of Bush v. Gore, so distraught was he over the decision that effectively ended the Florida recount and installed George W. Bush as president.

In “The Nine,” which goes on sale Sept. 18, Toobin writes that while the other justices tried to put the case behind them, “David Souter alone was shattered,” at times weeping when he thought of the case. “For many months, it was not at all clear whether he would remain as a justice,” Toobin continues. “That the Court met in a city he loathed made the decision even harder. At the urging of a handful of close friends, he decided to stay on, but his attitude toward the Court was never the same.”

Miss Teen South Carolina Calls 911

I personally believe that such miscommunication could never occur in The Iraq if South Africa had never invaded it.
