The Heineken World Rugby Cup 2007 Continental Shift advert shows Rugby teams pushing the continents together to form a mega-continent. Maybe I’m missing something:
- If you are standing on a continent, and push against part of it, it won’t move at all. Like standing on a bus, pushing against the seat doesn’t move the bus.
- If you’re standing on one side of a continental divide and push against the other continent, both will move apart, equally, in opposite directions. Stand on a boat, push against another boat, both boats move apart.
Bad Ad Physics or have I missed something really obvious?
