    One time I was 27 seconds old and had a huge birth second party.

    What’s weird about that fact about the moon is that when it’s a full moon, it looks round to me.

    May the Lord be with you as He is with me.

    The pulsating is the heart beat of the world.

    Start treating your mother (Mother Earth) better.

    No planet or moon is perfectly spherical.

    It pulses every 26 seconds because of all the crap humans do to it… IMO

    An environmentalist was giving a speech and told his audience that if we continue on our present course all life on earth will be gone in 50 years.

    A member of the audience jumped to his feet and cried out in panic, “What? What did you say?!”

    The environmentalist solemnly repeated, “I said if we continue the way we are now going, that every man, woman, and child on earth will be gone in fifty years.”

    The man sat down in relief and said, “Oh, thank God. I thought you said fifteen years.”

    Until next time.

    the pulsating is coming from the people who drive around in their cars with the bass turned up to max on the radio……

    Oddly, I don’t feel the Earth move under my feet, or even see the sky tumbling down.

    When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that’s amore. Or that’s well rum.

    Take care, may the singing half of Martin and Lewis Dean “Memories Are Made Of Nerve End Ganglia And Brain Synapses If You’re Lucky” Martinord be with you, and gesundheit.

    So the moon is lemon shaped, the Earth is pear shaped, and we’re nuts. We live in a giant fruit salad. Beware, the end time Jello mold is coming.

    The following seems to be on topic, though I’m pretty sure it’s been posted before:

    A flat-Earther dies and goes to heaven, and is met by Saint Peter at the pearly gates.

    “You’ve lived your life free from sin and because of this, we welcome you into heaven my child” says Saint Peter.

    The flat-Earther breathes a sigh of relief and starts to make his way through the gates of heaven. Before he is about to enter he turns to Saint Peter and asks,“I’ve got to know, is the earth flat or round?”

    Saint Peter laughs and responds,“It’s round I’m afraid my child."

    A look of shock comes over the flat-Earther’s face, then the look of realisation.

    “Huh, I see.” says the flat-Earther.

    “This conspiracy goes higher than I thought.”

    Until next time.

    I told my mom she needed to keep her hands out of my drawers.

    She ask me why, I told her because it tickles.

    So, every 26 seconds someone, on an island, needs to enter the code: 4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42 – to keep the earth from exploding?

    I don’t know if this is true or not (I’d guess not), but it’s funny.

    In 1969, in the months leading up to the Moon landing, the Apollo 11 astronauts trained in a remote moon-like desert in the western United States. One day as they were training, the astronauts came across an old Native American.

    ‘What are you doing here?’ the old man asked.

    ‘We are here as a part of a research expedition that will very soon travel to explore the Moon!’

    ‘The Moon?! Hmm… could you then do me a favor?’

    ‘What do you want?’

    ‘Well, the people of my tribe believe that holy spirits live on the Moon. I was wondering if you could pass an important message to them from my people.’

    ‘What’s the message?’

    The man uttered something in his tribal language, and then asked the astronauts to repeat it again and again until they had memorized it correctly.

    ‘What does it mean?’ asked the astronauts.

    ‘Oh, I cannot tell you. It’s a secret that only our tribe and the moon spirits are allowed to know.’

    The astronauts were intrigued with the secret message, so when they returned to their base they searched and searched until they finally found one Native American who could speak the old man’s tribal language and translate the message.

    When they repeated the message they had memorized, the translator started to laugh his as* off.

    ‘Why are you laughing man, what does the message say?’

    ’It says – Don’t believe a single word these people are telling you. They have come to steal your lands.’

    Until next time.

    Pulses at what frequency?

    Planet Earth has been hit by a few asteroids that probably caused it to ring like a bell, like the one that wiped out the dinosaurs. Maybe the pulsing is the remnant of the vibrations caused by such an asteroid.

    The earth pulsates because every object that has mass and weight no matter how small or large have a resonant frequency.

    That’s easy.

    The Earth is actually one of many Galactic Beacons used by interGalactic travelers to calculate their location within the Galaxy.

    The Earth was created billions of years ago by alien engineers, who placed a pulsating mechanism deep with the Earth’s core.

    There are many, many worlds throughout the Galaxy that have these pulsating mechanisms.

    The initial strength, length, and amplitude of the pulse is the guide to were you are within the Galaxy.

    There is a Galactic pulse manual that can be used to triangulate where you are by the length, amplitude, and strength of the pulse.

    The pulse’s initial strength decreases by distance from the source.

    The manual shows position for your intergalactic craft by the detected signal strength, along with the length and amplitude of the pulse.

    Pretty neat, huh?

    And i just want to say boy is the artist exaggerating the moon’s lemon shape. The Earth, according Asimov, is slightly pear-shaped. Now I have to look up this business about the pulse that goes through the world every 26 seconds. It might be caused by moms getting mad at their sons, I dunno.

    Several plausible explanations can be found for Earth’s 26-second pulsation. Among them is the cover-up to a decades old murder:

    (if for some reason it doesn’t show search: xkcd + 26-second pulse)

    Earth is the same as the moon. In fact, all planets are.If you were able to stand on/in the water at the poles and the equator, at the same distance from the earth’s centre, you would be on the surface at the poles and considerably under water at the equator. Badly put, but I hope you get what I mean
