Voyage to our hollow earth. "Steve Currey's Expedition Company has chartered the Russian Nuclear IceBreaker YAMAL, to take 100 adventurers to the North Pole for an expedition to conduct scientific observations that could resolve once and for all whether the Hollow Earth theories have any validity!"

Hollow? When will these simpletons realize the error of their ways and just admit that the earth is flat?

Previously. (But it's still got that wonderful I-really-should-look-away-but-I-can't quality it did seven months ago...)

This is great: even if the expedition ends in tragedy, it's still a net victory for humanity.

Seems to me that even if they don't find anything, they can always fall back on the inverted earth theory and pull some kind of Planet of the Apes-style "you've been inside the hollow earth all along" switcheroo

They had this guy on the radio late at night talking about the inverted Earth idea, which is the last I heard of those people still even being around. Also it was an inspiration for a D&D Campaign a long time ago, and as such is at least somewhat interesting.

pokeydonut - you can't invert the Earth - where would the turtles go? As for the 100 adventurers? I just hope they remember to take their 6-8" Knife of Polar Bear Slaying +5...
