"Third deepest hole ever"

Some missed headline opportunities there, for certain.

Im really high, and nick4753's picture looks like the girl has an eye patch on.

Yeah, like a reference to Courtney Love or something...

oh wait.

Clicky goodness!

Somehow poking holes in the Earth's crust doesn't seem like a *great* idea. I mean if we had a backup earth to play with I'd be all for it.

What they find once they cross the barrier.
2005-04-08 09:24:30 PM  
Oooo! Hey what if just keep on drilling and it comes out the other side! What would that be like a massive drain? Holy shiat we'd wind up slammed sideways against Japan!!! Cool!!

//really bored

ZING! was the first thing that came to my mind as well. Good one.

Ha ha ha, Submitter! Oh gosh that's funny! That's really funny! Do you write your own material? Do you? Because that is so fresh. "Callista Flockhart's career." You know, I've, I've never heard anyone make that joke before. Hmm. You're the first. I've never heard anyone reference...reference her before. Because that's what funny? Isn't it? Callista Flockhart's career. And, and yet you've taken that and used it out of context to insult her in this everyday situation. God what a clever, smart girl you must be, to come up with a joke like that all by yourself. That's so fresh too. Any, any American Idol jokes you want to throw out too as long as we're hitting these phenomena at the height of their popularity. God you're so funny!

Oh gosh that's funny! That's really funny! Do you write your own..... aww, fark it.

"hole was open and in good condition, IODP scientists said, and ready to be drilled deeper"
heh heh...
2005-04-08 09:30:16 PM  
lighten up, francis..
2005-04-08 09:31:13 PM  

Nice original use of the "I've never heard that one before" sarcasm. Well, maybe not...
2005-04-08 09:33:31 PM  

by the way, I like how she made sure this hit her IMDB profile:

The 75th Annual Academy Awards (2003) (TV) (uncredited) .... Herself - Audience Member

that is one hell of a tough role.
2005-04-08 09:33:32 PM  
I smell a business opportunity here... ThruEarth Travel Company. Giant elevators. Woo-hoo.

Actually I'm sure it'd be the crap out of spending 22 hours on a flight to Austrailia or Japan or something.
2005-04-08 09:34:52 PM  

you sound like Stewie Griffin.
2005-04-08 09:41:23 PM  
Thank you rawsta, that was the joke.

As an aside, it's been said that drilling into the seafloor from a ship is like trying to drill the sidewalk from the top of the Empire State Building using a strand of spaghetti. The project known as the Mohole was eventually called the Nohole (funny scientists, eh?)
2005-04-08 09:50:13 PM  
rawsta - Course it does. I saw the episode last night and it was the first thing that came to mind, so I ripped it off.
2005-04-08 10:02:44 PM  
May I be the first one to say, "Pop."
2005-04-08 10:07:03 PM  
strikitrich wins the thread, and PWNED you guys who recognize get the quote.

oh wait.

I'dve gone with Paris Hilton or Lindsay Lohan, but thats just Personal preference.

Hopefully they found a sammich for her too.
2005-04-08 11:27:41 PM  
So what do they do when the bit comes up?

Do they lean over it and yell "FRODO!!!!" "GANDALF!!!!"?

Or is that a different Middle Earth?
2005-04-08 11:40:37 PM  
Harsh. I like it.
2005-04-09 12:22:24 AM  
They tried to drill though that 'barrier' in the 50's or 60's. It's nothing new. Move along, nothing more to see here.
2005-04-09 12:39:14 AM  
ok dig a little further, and you will cause a volcano and earthquakes, tidal waves, and a new continent. you will cause the extinction of most life. you could cause a extender winter where not much can survive. good job!!!

supported by two lead agencies, the U.S. National Science Foundation and Japan's Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology.

Why don't we have a Ministry of Everything? I'm jealous..

And some anthropologist thinks he may have unearthed her body.
