Not really, no. The problem is you're asking for a continent, which usually means a large landmass based on some kind of cratons, and cratons usually don't just disappear. They can get jostled around or merge into one another, but they're very large masses of slightly less dense rock that "float" on top of the denser oceanic rocks. Even Zealandia, ...

Yes. See any continent (but Antarctica) on Earth:

Look at Asia, moving North from the southern tip of India: you have tropical climate, high mountain environment on the Himalaya and then the Gobi desert and from there taiga and steppe. Totally possible.

Absolutely yes. None of this trash on a beach was dropped there by humans. Much of it was dropped many thousands of kilometers away. The distribution of the trash is not even though. Some places will concentrate it, some places will disperse it. It depend on the specific confluence of currents and wind patterns just where the trash heads to, and whether it ...

Trash, like any other substance, can be distributed by weather agents like wind and currents, so it is plausible that it reaches even remote locations. Take a look at what happens with volcanic hashes, dust, plant seeds, plastics and so on, just to consider a broader definition of "trash": they are carried over for even thousands of kilometers and ...

TLDR. No, just no. Long story short Sorry, the concept is totally not feasable. Global wind patterns arise from two 'primary' drivers and are influenced by many others. The temperature difference between the poles and the equator. In a non-rotating world this would lead to meridonal convective heat transfer via the ocean/atmosphere system. Coriolis pseudo-...

The concept is totally feasible. It does come with some disadvantages, like: The needed size of the installation. The "large" in your "large space mirrors" would have to be several thousand square kilometers. Ideally in the 1 million square kilometers range. This might be a bit expensive. You will be adding some extra heat to the Earth. ...

Let us assume that the Crimson King wears his glowy red ball like a hat or an elaborate do. It is right on top of his head. For calculations we will make the King himself of negligible height which might be why he feels the need for such a large hat/ elaborate do. How far away is the horizon from 5800 meters up? I used this website. http://www.ringbell.co....

Assuming the asteroid is at head height, you can calculate from this the range is 272 kilometers. France is about 1000 kilometers wide, so about half of France would die as they became flesh monsters if it appeared above Paris. The sun radiates massive amounts of heat (hence why the the Earth is warm), so scientifically the red sun is a bit weird. You should ...

Same effect. https://www.pca.state.mn.us/air/chlorofluorocarbons-cfcs-and-hydrofluorocarbons-hfcs Halon is specifically listed as harmful to the ozone layer. Bromine does the same evil that Chlorine does. As for the question itself, from the source HFCs, CFCs and HFCs contribute an estimated 11.5% to present-day effect of GHGs on climate and climate change....

Kesh is a runaway grey swarm and the obelisks have a counteracting grey swarm. The kesh is a biological, magical, or technological grey swarm, that eats everything it touches. The obelisks are a corrupted version of it, that emits its own swarm that feeds off the kesh within a certain distance. The kesh can't eat the foundations because the obelisks eat it. ...

Foundations already reacted with kesh Let's put aside answers that the bedrock or things like sand are probably not reacting to kesh. There is a very simple reason you've already given in your opening statement. Stuff reacts to kesh and is reduced by it to a dust. This dust doesn't react with kesh anymore, or if it is, can't be reduced further. Sure it'll ...

Gold The obelisks are made of gold, which is very non-reactive. Furthermore, it is as simple as it gets -- it's elemental. You can't break down molecules that don't exist. Were they of silver or iron or copper, or most other metals, there might be a problem with the surface tarnishing/rusting/acquiring verdigris and the kesh breaking that down in a manner ...

Cylinders, not Spheres There is no explanation for why the obelisks repel the kesh, so its mechanism is up to you - so rather than a simple radius, the obelisks repel kesh in a circle that is of fixed radius but unlimited vertical extent. (Or effectively unlimited.) So as to prevent the kesh from dissolving its way down to the core of the planet, why not ...

I would say that it is at best unclear. According to this map, one can see the average height per country for a 19 years old male. It is worth nothing that even countries with very similar climates (i.g. Norway and Canada, or Greece and Turkey) have different heights, and the consideration that in colder climates a shorter body would be favored by a better ...

-In islands animals usually develop to be smaller because the large ones starve and die -Inbreeding and sexual selection can select for short people, see the Jomon tribe which evolved into modern Japanese people of today. Japanese are among the richest Asians while also being the shortest. diet is not everything. Even in the poorest places in China, people ...
