Let me ask you, if you were standing at one of the Earth's poles, either north or south, and wanted to give someone directions, how would you start? Well, I suppose if you where at the the south pole, you would start your directions with, "first you go north. . ." It would be the opposite if you were at the north pole.
If you continued with your directions by telling that same person to meet you back at the pole at noon for lunch, what time zone would both of your watches have to set at to meet at the same time? The problem is, all time zones run together at the poles. OK, now I am starting to get dizzy. . . maybe that is why my nickname is "Dizzy". Of course, if you take one step off the point that is the south pole, you then can go any of the four directions, right? But, the Earth wobbles on its axis, so does that mean that poles move around in a small circle? Actually, I believe it does. Now, I am really dizzy.
Another question comes to my mind. At the poles we wouldn't have any centrifugal force trying to throw us off the planet as we would at the equator where we would be spinning around at about a thousand miles per hour. So, even though the Earth is fatter at the equator (probably because of its spin), we would probably weigh weigh more at the poles because there is no spin trying to throw us off. Not sure about that, what do you think?
I don't believe that I want to visit either pole. It gets cold enough here in Texas for me. Now, you all have a great day and don't get too dizzy, you hear?
