Continental drift

I don't know if you've heard about it, but there's a bit of contention down here in the antipodes as to whether Australia is "headed in the right direction".

Well I did the research, and at present, we're drifting north towards the tropics at a rate of 10mm per year.

Right? Wrong? Hell if I know. There's probably more important things to quibble over. Enjoy a sunny Saturday.

(Update: Here's a pic of the current state of the aforementioned blackboard:)

Yep! Think I compressed the horizontal scale somewhat, tho.
