    Read over what I said: I didn't want the nuke to land on you silly!!!!

    maiden gertrude,

    Ok, so I really screwed that one up was in a hurry, sue me!!!!

    You knew what was meant just throwing a shot, that is ok at some point I will return the favor!

    Hopefully the nuke will not land on you!!!

    I wonder how many times this idiot is going to pull this crap?
    I just realized that I missed the end of the earth...can anybody give me an eyewitness report?

    It wasn't much cop. Whole thing went *splut*, shimmered out of existence, and reappeared just as it was before. Might as well not have happened. Waste of money and effort, if you ask me.

    He's just got to be right once.

    The important question really is
    If planet X does destroy the world.
    Will Russ suspend timeouts?

    So planet 9 hits in Siberia, I wonder how long it would take till we all died in America? How long would it take before we even knew something whacked our planet?

    The first effects ofthe coming in planet would be feltbefore the i pact.

    Seismic waves travel at about8 km/s peak velocity,so latest after 5000s you should feel them.

    I bet there would be non-linear effect that would push that 8Km/sec to more like 80 Km/sec for a planet sized impact.

    It would break right through the crust, and so the immediate effects would be to the tectonic plates, so the damage would be nearly immediate and not have to propagate across the planet to be felt. The major immediate effect would be the melting of nearly the entire crust, nearly half of it at first followed by the other half. The energy involved would be transfered almost immediately to heat and the heat would be tremendous planet-wide, probably turning all organic material into ash and then melting the rest.

    Earth could end up having TWO moons after the dust settled. That seems to be how Luna got formed, Earth being wacked by a Mars sized planet. They say now the core of Earth is a lot bigger than it should be for a normal accretion action. They think the Earth's core got some of that planets core added to it which in the long run was good for life on Earth because the resultant magnetic field would be almost twice as strong as it would have been without that wack.

    So life would probably continue, of course mostly bacteria since anything big would have been ground up to individual molecules but another hundred million years goes by and new forms would come up.
