Anonymous said: Do you think it would ever be possible for humans to change the orbits of moons or other extraterrestrial bodies?

Yes..we could change the orbit of the moon…but it would take a huge amount of energy. The mostly likely scenario would be sending solar or fission (or fusion) powered robots to nearby comets and converting part of the comet into fuel to alter its own orbit to collide with the moon in order to change it in the way that we desired. (This would require SO MUCH AWESOME MATH!)

However, we probably wouldn’t actually want to change the orbit of the moon since the Earth has a lot of systems that rely on the current lunar calendar. And planets…well…I doubt there are enough comets in the solar system to significantly change the orbit of Mars or Venus. But what we could do is slam a bunch of comets into Venus in order to:

1. Speed up it’s rotation (which would be much easier than changing it’s orbit) because it’s days are SUPER LONG which would make it very hard for terrestrial life to live there

2. Significantly increase the amount of water on the planet. 

If you’re wondering why people think about this stuff…it’s mostly in order to write science fiction novels…but also so that we can keep thinking about all the marvelous things that are possible in our future.

Nope, you’re not confused…that’s what happens.

Ideally you’d use one of my scripts, but I’m open to it being open. I think there’s something interesting and helpful about seeing other people do different things than you with the same material.

Who the fuck named the Sahara Desert anyway

Sahara is just the Arabic word for “deserts”

You fucking named it the Desert Desert

way to fucking go

I’ll take “European Imperialists Who Never Bothered To Translate…

Obligatory note on “The La Brea Tar Pits” translating to “The The Tar Tar Pits.” Also pointing out that ‘So Long As It’s Words” put ‘#Moon Moon’ in the tags, which made me laugh. 

If you can’t tell…I’ve found a new blog I like a lot. If you love words, follow So Long As It’s Words!

what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?

It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870

I CAN ANSWER THIS!!
In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).
In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.

EDIT: The original NGram is a fake! So this makes Pokemon an even weirder coincidence.

Remember that time Neil thought he was just trollin’ the internet but then the “So Long As It’s Words” ladies pointed out that, in fact, he had accidentally chosen the exact moment when it was most likely that the word Pokemon had briefly (and completely coincidentally) been published in English literature?
I love you all!
