When all is said that's dumb, and when we finally cease our streams of whiny bickering, and when the well of our complaints runs dry, I feel I can be genuinely thankful, if for nothing else, that when the mighty earth, in it's big, stupid orbit, and with its rapid, yet seemingly slow, doltish spin... It is here that I can be thankful: that the spinning earth does not have some kind of high-pitched Squeak. I mean, how annoying would that be? A mighty "Earth Squeak!" How could anybody sleep? We would need research teams to identify the sources. Then pour tons of oil (or butter) into the suspect cavity or crevice. And who knows how long the noises would be halted? The world only has so much oil. But I suppose we could encourage the breeding of cows for an endless supply of butter. Maybe a tax-break for anybody who breeds cows. How about that, huh? Alright!
