Comment My pimple's bigger than that (Score 1) 224

" ...with 40 cm of rock eroding and the water level rising by 10 m per day at its peak..."

40 centimeters ain't much of anything. I doubt it would allow much of the Atlantic Ocean to get in.

Unless, of course, the blurb author meant 40 cubic miles in which case we're talking about one big hole.

But, if that's the case, using the same terminology the water lever was rising by 10 miles per day.

Help, I'm surrounded by ignoramuses.

Comment Fantom? (Score 1) 137

'There are millions of computers sitting idle at home consuming fantom electricity.

Fantom? As in "Phantom of the Opera" or that old comic "The Phantom"? Nah, can't be. Not spelled the same.

But, if in fact phantom was intended by the author, just what in hell is phantom electricity?
