It's Friday, baby, so please don't blow my mind

Holy Christ. Did y'all know that not every part of the earth turns around at the same speed?

I'm not fucking kidding.

See, the earth is kinda like a cherry cordial. There's the chocolate outside, which we are busy trashing, and the nasty, vaguely liquor-tasting goo inside, which is the outer core, and the cherry: the solid iron inner core.

Well, apparently scientists have just determined that, because it floats in that goo, the inner core is free to rotate at a speed completely different than the rest of us are rotating.

No shit.

It goes faster.

Wonder what the intelligent design people will have to say about this.

Probably the whole cherry cordial analogy will go way over their heads.
