I hate to just say I like it, but I do - something to smooth my ruffeled feathers.

Fascinating.

Looks like that assumes a steady percentage of ocean surface. Also my thought would have been that by the time a continent has moved THAT much (like when my homeland appears to collide with China) it has largely ceased to be the same shape as some areas develop land bridges and others are inundated. I wonder if 50 million years from now there will even be some remote descendent of humanity still living here? Given what has happened so far it'd look like some other creature, perhaps scaled up or down.

Perhaps the neocons have followed their obvious trajectory and become Morlocks?
...Not that this would take 50 million years, of course.
