The Straight Dope: How can waves be crashing on all sides of an island at once?

The Straight Dope article itself isn’t all that great. The person who asked the question seemed a bit silly, if you ask me. But anyways, at the bottom of the page is a section called “Questions we’re still thinking about”. And some of them seem even more silly. 🙂 For example:

`Don’t ask how this came up, please. Which weighs more: a cubic foot of unsalted butter, or a cubic foot of an adult blue whale? –JKP, via e-mail’

`How much deeper would the ocean be without sponges? –Justin Lefto, via e-mail’
