Bak 2 Skool 10: VOLCANOES

No, please don't wave your hand underneath a stream of lava.

It must have been really fun being in school with Dan Ryckert. Now we'll all know what it's like, for better or worse!

Most of the Earth's mass is in the mantle and core, if that was gone there would be very little gravity left to hold everything on the surface, PLUS, the currents in the core are what generate the Earth's magnetic field, so goodbye atmosphere and hello solar winds

not to mention the like, basic structural integrity issues with a hollow planet, everything would collapse, we would instantly be annihilated DAN

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD - someone please clip the Dan questions like "what happens when we eject all the lava from the core of the earth into space?" or "what if: jet egg with propeller" and send them all to Neil deGrasse Tyson for follow-up. I need legitimate answers to Dan's absurd questions.

The core is responsible for Earth's magnetic field, which protects our planet and atmosphere from the Sun. And also removing a large portion of the Earth's core would significantly reduce the amount of gravity that we have on our planet. Dan is just talking about destroying the planet.

I want to see the alternate reality where the Web reaches mass market saturation about two decades earlier than ours and Bakalar is at CNET doing laserdisc player reviews.

Not that I condone visiting Dan's intelligence griefing upon any human, but Randall Munroe would probably be a more responsive target.

I feel like the episodes are getting more and more surface level knowledge of the "what," of the subjects. The first few dug into different aspects. Still enjoying it nonetheless.

Dan hypothesizes fish that swim in magma, which don't exist. However, magma vents under the ocean often have unique biomes of critters that manage to survive the incredible heat and pressure, and those things are metal as fuck.

Edit: Also, someone needs to tell Dan that the core is a solid ball of iron and nickel. Just regular ole metal

One thing the core of the earth is doing for us is keeping gravity as much as it is.

Someone needs to tell Dan you CAN sled down some of those volcanoes (albeit in a suit that protects you and down pumice slopes)!

Pro-tip: Don't in fact go to Hawaii! The native peoples of Hawaii have long been calling for a halting of the tourist industry but it reached a breaking point after COVID. The one-way traffic of tourists in has put a huge strain on everything but especially the healthcare infrastructure. Not to mention the long-flights that rack up quite the carbon cost.

Dan's description's of the academic discipline of Film Studies is literally insane. There is no way someone walks away with a college degree by just knowing the directors and stars of a bunch of movies: that's not what Film Studies is.

I think Dan is onto something about removing all the magma. Plus since you're removing mass from the earth, that means gravity goes down which means we all weigh less. It's like a diet for everyone.

There's lots of active volcanoes in the world that can be hiked which is fun, it's just like a long, rocky uphill walk. Mount Merapi in Indonesia is one of the most active in the world but was a popular tourist activity until 2018 when it started erupting.

Dan basically described Dr. Evil's plan from the first Austin Powers movie when he asked about drilling into the Earths core.
