hahahaha...well, I'll have to let you know on the EXACT question...but, it is something to do with calculating the amount that the tetonic plates were moving 6.25 billion years ago...

Are you sure its 6.25 billion? If I'm not mistaken , at that time , this system hadn't formed yet , and the predecessor star may or may not have reached the supergiant phase.

So I'm a bit confused. This geology question that involved math... Was it like one of those questions akin to the two trains going 35mph & when they would meet? I don't remember anything like that in any of my geology classes in college.

Sorry to hear about Bibits father, thoughts and prayers to you and your family.

I've been busy with work and DH got a new job last summer so he's home again. So not as much free time as I used to have.

Bought a new 2010 Jetta TDI in Sept. The sunroof on my Blazer got stuck open and since it was 9 years old it was too much to repair, although we did eventually get it closed. Plus the whole gas situation. Now DH and I are both in TDI's (diesels) getting over 500 miles to a tank.

Counting the days to March 20, first day of Spring, I am so ready to warm up and bust out the shorts and flip flops and start gardening. Man it's been cold!

They want(ed) me to calculate how fast the tectonic plates were moving 65 million years ago. (plus other, similar questions). Now, on a logical standpoint, I think that is a ludicrous question...who cares? BUT, being the good student that I am, I tried to at least find a base point from which I could do the multiplying...yeah, not so much.

Plus the class is FULL of maps and graphs. Also doesn't work in my pea brain.

Hopefully we can work something out in my meeting on Wednesday.
