Re: 1190: "Time"

Hello again from the shadows. I have not kept up with the OTT since T** E** (I'm a permanent resident of the comfy chair I suppose), but have occasionally checked in to see familiar faces and smile to see you wonderful people keeping the joy going. The new othercomic touched my heart and I had to re...

One thing Randall seems to ignore, though (unless I didn't read carefully enough) is, if you drop Mt. Denali from space, how much of it would actually be left to impact once it reached the surface? I have no clue on what order of magnitude the loss due to ablation would be, so I don't know if it wo...
