Arkanaut: LesterB: Wow I think it all got covered in three comments!


Theoretically there could have been an Atlantis comment, but I guess people don't really care about that anymore.

Rather interesting. Continental crust usually does not sink like the denser ocean crusts. I wonder if these are the subducted remains of something off the Indian or Antarctic plates.

Sgygus: Though Gods they were
And as the elders of our time choose to remain blind
Let us rejoice and let us sing and dance and ring in the new
Hail Atlantis

Atlanta was a city, landlocked,
Hundreds of miles from the area we now call the Atlantic Ocean,
Yet so desperate the city's desire for tourism,
That they moved offshore, becoming an island,
And an even bigger Delta hub,
until the city overdeveloped
And it started to sink.
Knowing their fate, the quality people ran away,
Ted Turner, Hank Aaron, Jeff Foxworthy,
The Guy Who Invented Coca-Cola, the Magician,
And the other so-called gods of our legends,
Though gods they were--
And also, Jane Fonda was there.
The others chose to remain behind
On their porches with their rifles,
And one day evolve into mermaids,
And sing and dance,
And ring in the new.
Hail Atlanta!
