The Soviet Union dissolved in 1991.
**** they were down deep if they didn't find out until 1992.

if youre bored, lets play bowling !
#82 to #74 - John Cena (05/12/2013) [-]
You can't use a gerend in front of a verbal noun like that. One GOES bowling, not "play's bowling." You go swimming, you don't play swimming.

But "bowling" is the name of the game itself. Like you can play chess or tennis, you can play bowling.

how about the one where i won the superbowl and got a bunch of hot women and a robot servant?

I've always wondered about this. Do they just build the drill in sections, welding a new section on when the rest of it is in the ground? And where does all the bedrock go?
User avatar #10 to #8 - havocnchaos (05/11/2013) [-]
You have a valid question but I don't see why people thumbed you down. Here is a thumb for you sir.
User avatar #34 to #8 - collegedood (05/12/2013) [-]
well they aren't welded, they screw together and are fastened with giant wrenches to make sure they don't come apart in the hole, but I'm pretty sure they turn the bit in a way to always tighten the locks between each metal rod.
BUT why drill down when your drill will pierce the heavens?

It seems it uses water to make all the bits at the bottom into a slurry, which is then sucked through tubes inside the drill to cool the tip and pump it out.
Also, Gurren Lagann is good.
User avatar #12 to #11 - thenewnuggubler ONLINE (05/11/2013) [-]
Also, if it was an auger drill, the rock is lifted out by the turning of the body of the drill.

That's a good quote. Let's think of someone famous and relevant who we can claim said it, and we'll make one of those fancy quote-pictures.
