Just adding my own simple, non-calculus solution, to the mix.
When the radius of the earth is r we have...
Length of string around earth = 2*pi*r
Length of string around earth and poodle evenly = 2*pi(r + poodle)
Subtract former from the latter and it's 2*pi*r + 2*pi*poodle - 2*pi*r, so just 2*pi*poodle more.
Perhaps for his encore he'll move on to posting jokes about airplanes and twin towers for real giggles.

They built a pyramid, we havn't.
How can we tell them how to build it better, when we cant even achieve what they did 4000+ years ago? lol
But my point is it may be the only thing preventing us from achieving the same is an unwillingness to be blatantly immoral (not to mention finding a compelling reason to build one in the first place). If that's the case then, yeah, we might very well have grounds for telling the a better way to do the same thing. You never know. *shrug*
A big reason we don't build something similar of that scale now is that we tend to frown upon obvious slave labor nowadays.
No need to tell Noah anything. The flood story is a myth.
Testosterone does not cause assholish-ness, per se, so much as it exacerbates it.
Oh, so kind of like alcohol then.
Electrons interfere with themselves, because the fluctuation (which is the electron) exists in the full region between the source and screen. The interference pattern is the same no matter how slowly (in terms of electron rate) you fire the electrons, so build up is not a concern.
And this is an important point. I'm not a physicist, but one thing that helped me understand this better is to consider firing a single electron (for example) at the two slits one at the time. It could be at the rate of one per minute, one hour or whatever.
Every electron that makes it through to the screen behind the two slits will hit it at a single point. Nothing unusual there. However, if you make a histogram on the screen based on how frequently each spot gets hit by an electron you'll see the interference pattern you'd expect from a wave being split in two from the two slits. So each electron is a wave that travels through both slits, not one or the other.
Only if you're really really lucky.
If there is true consensus about global warming, then science should be inviting opposing thought - not trying to stifle the discussion like a dictator.
But what if the opposing "thought" you're inviting is simply a bunch of specious reasoning debunked a long time ago? Repeated over and over. To the point that you realize that the ones doing the arguing have no interest whatsoever in any kind of objective truth. How long should you be inviting it then? How long do you pretend they deserve respect?
For many of the myths espoused on what the Paleo diet was see here.
And really, 640 kg of unused plutonium ought to be enough for anybody.
Should that be considered a disability?
We don't need more web programming languages. Just one good one.
