Well, the surface area of Australia is 2968000 square miles..
The surface area of Earth is 197000000 square miles.. and the volume of earth is 259800000000 cubic miles. So, going from the surface to the core, the Australia-shaped wedge of Earth looks like it'd work out to be 3914140000 cubic miles.. or 1.63148472 × 10^19 cubic meters...

64 * 1.63148472 × 10^19 cubic meters = 1.04415022 × 10^21 cubic meters.

I think the great-grandparent was using oz as an abbreviation for ounces, though.

Let's get this idea out so that it gets implemented and leads to the decentralization of the DNS process...

How about the U.S. starts seizing domains everywhere at the request of a U.S.-led cabal that has, as a condition of entry, the requirement that members agree to a U.S.-centric policy on copyright infringement?

After the inevitable collapse of the current centralized DNS process, a couple of browser plugins and people will go on doing what they were already doing.

If we listened to those people complaining loudest and hardest, banned all Facebook, Twitter, iterative product releases, generic rants and blogs, flamebait and troll articles, and reviews, what would be left? One story per day, which half the people on Slashdot didn't even understand, because it was too technical?

I postulate that there would be an upsurge, relatively, in articles relating to the female lead of V for Vendetta, possibly in the nude and lathered in some sort of warmer-than-lukewarm breakfast product.

Just a theory... although I, for one, salute our former meme overlords.

Them as has, gets.

Working...
