I got nothing...

Wait?!

Was that the point?


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Wouldn't put it past anyone doing that haha but just seems like an honest mistake.

Mercury requires faith, it will reveal its secrets to you only if you let it into your heart. Or you know, when they fixed the link...

Edit: Really, my thousandth post on TTA is essentially a joke at my own religion's expense?

Need to think of a witty signature.

Quote:"Earth does not seem to have these layers, either because the minerals never separated, or because the movement of its surface plates, called tectonics, has mixed everything up again," Boujibar added.

So very, very wrong. Eiher this is being tragically misreported (likely) or this guy has never heard of core-mantle-crust differentiation.

The physical and chemical variation induced by plate tectonics on Earth is not subtle.
