    Ok cool story. So im guessing the people that ran these studies are "yuppies nut jobs" right?

    Right?
    But i have enough common since to look into research done on the subject.
    Am I a drilling genius? Of course not. There's no such thing as a, "drilling genius". My father drilled oil wells for 50 years and he learned new **** until the day he died.

    Do I have enough common sense and experience to know that water doesn't flow up hill? You bet your butt I do.

    Actually, I think they're a buncha tree huggers that are taking half-assed information and passing it off as fact.

    You really should have paid attention in history class. It would have kept you from making such a fool of yourself.


    There is even a Wiki page - The Myth of the Flat Earth
    During the early Middle Ages, virtually all scholars maintained the spherical viewpoint first expressed by the Ancient Greeks. By the 14th century, belief in a flat earth among the educated was dead.
    Basically you are showing the tendency so prevalent amongst the modern American right of denigrating science while knowing next to nothing about complex subjects. Thank you for playing.

    It's a mixed success here (seriously messing up our local rural way of life), but you can bet your ass we are loving the hell out of its macro economic benefits. Sorry bub.

    They are using it as justification to remove the property tax. A bad idea, because we'll probably just get the taxes somewhere else where it will hurt, but everything revolves around this boom of ours.

    Actually you're wrong on this one buddy. They're relying on unproven science and to distract you from that have gotten you on some petty trivia.

    Let's get back to the issue.

    Bystanders lives at 14,000 feet deep? Care to give me a population table of our underground brethren?
