Expanding Earth hypothesis confirmed

Longtime readers will have noticed that the posting rate and quality have both drastically declined around here over the past 8 months. Truth is, I have been involved in a number of projects, the most important of which is the confirmation of the expanding Earth hypothesis. Truth be told, though, this is mostly Mrs. Lemming’s project; I just watch, listen, and tidy up all the other things that this doesn’t leave her time to do. But the demonstration of Earth expantion is going very well; the planet pictured below started out as just a wee little olivine just a few dozen weeks ago. Look at it now:

Hmmm, not only has Australia expanded, it looks as if it has drifted northward at a surprising clip. I'll forgo gratuitous questions regarding subduction zones and collisions, and simply wish you and Mrs. Lemming good luck and congratulations!

Woot! Congratulations to the Lemming family. How does the LLLL feel about the upcoming addition of an lovely even-littler lab lemming?

I hate to burst your lovely hypothesis, but I'm still a firm believer in subduction.

Congratulations to the entire Lemming clan!

My mind is boggling at the thought of the geological equivalent of the arrival of the next little Lemming!

OK, you've convinced me. I repent from The PT Orthodoxy.

Congratulations! Look forward to seeing pics of the next baby lemming.

Aah, but what happens to the title of the LLLL now? Does she become the Lovely Less Little Lab Lemming (LLLLL)?
