The difference in time between when Tyrannosaurus Rex and Stegosaurus lived is greater than the difference in time between Tyrannosaurus Rex and now:

(Which makes the following thought occur to me: The movie Jurassic Park features several dinosaurs that were not from the Jurassic period!)

But Earth would long ago have been sucked inside of Jupiter. Tides are a bitch.

Those would be some massive tides. Hadn't thought of that.

So, the distance to the moon is 384,400 km.

The distance to the innermost Galilean moon Io from Jupiter is 421,700 km, and its orbital period is 1.769 days. Some smaller satellites of Jupiter have orbits closer than the Earth's moon. Could a satellite the size of the Earth not have a stable orbit at that distance? The tides would certainly have some dramatic effects I suppose, but would that necessarily result in it falling into Jupiter?

Economics majors have 4 times as many sexual partners as Philosophy majors.

Do they count MBAs? Because then it would make sense.

Don't know, but I assumed they were comparing majors for a bachelor's degree. MBA is a master's degree.
