    See... this just supports my theory on gravity... The earth has no gravity, it just sucks. And it sucked so much before Dr. Schmidt... that it looked like the diagram above. Then came Dr. Schmidt, and much of the sucking went into his playing... and the worlds parted. That is of course my theory... The theory that is mine...

    The Great Land of Oz - 101 Lesson 6 - Geology of Southern Oz

    Geologically, the western half of Tasmania (the little green island - shaped just like the map of Tasmania) is the same structure as Antarctica - however, the eastern half is the same as the Big Brown Island where I live. There appears to have been enough suction in the middle of Tassie to hold the rocks together as a certain trumpeter "blossomed" - and split the World apart - if we are to go with the theorem previously espoused here on TM. It is quite simple to prove that Tasmania is therefore a small part of the driest continent in the World and explains why 46% of Antarctica belongs to "Us", rather than "The US".

    Your homework will be to research the largest waterfall in the World - a minimum of 6 words should do it, but feel free to expand on those words. Marks will be given for accuracy, deductive reasoning, illustrations, and correct statements about crocodiles.

    Hint 1: I didn't mention height of falls in the homework.

    You've got the height about right - but Dry Falls in Eastern Washington, USA is a tiddler in comparison to the one I have in mind. No penalty for multiple answers BTW. Nice tangent considering lack of water though - 1 point for deductive reasoning. Oh, if you write Dry Falls in Eastern Washington, USA again you will lose that hard earned point.

    The largest waterfall, which I would take to mean the most volume of water, is probably the one in Laos on the Mekong. I forget its name.

    I always thought the largest waterfall (as in having the largest width x height area) was Victoria Falls in Africa.

    I wonder if the Loudest Trumpet Player In The World could be heard above the sound of the water?

    Can't check if I don't have more detail - thanks for participating - not the one I have in mind.

    If you weren't referring to the waterfall's area, but to the volume of water flowing over, then I suggest the one you mean is the Inga Falls on the Congo River.
