  1. Planets are round due to distribution of mass caused by their rotation. And a soap bubble wouldn’t form, because bubbles require air pressure on the outside AND inside. And “where the sun don’t shine” is in perpetual blackness, unless you’re like the picture at the top of your blog!
    You’re on your own for the rest! 😉

    • Thanks for all that, informative as ever. But I think we better set up a helpline for distressed Borg who have been searching the universe for a square planet where they can park their square spaceship.
      Re the picture, that’s a bureaucrat, I’m not that supple, 🙂

      • I said the picture LIKE you, not that the picture WAS you. Oh, and dogs’ noses aren’t always wet and/or cold – it depends on far more criteria than I know. And haven’t you seen the Trek movies with Borg spheres? You gotta quit working on these topics so hard, and go have some FUN! Go blow some IRIDESCENT bubbles – not white ones! (There’s not enough concentration of colouring agent, I think, is why the froth looks white.) 😉

        • Whoops, you got me good, I forgot about Borg spheres. 😦 However, scurrying quickly to my own defense and changing the subject, I do remember the planet Htrae from my comic reading days that Supermen made into a square – and that’s a fact (in the fictional sense, of course.)

      • Ah yes, comic-book breath, but the world was CREATED round, via natural forces. It was only ENGINEERED to be square later on! 😀
        Speaking of weird worlds (as opposed to the weird occupants thereof), check out It’s a “hard” (tech-heavy) sci-fi online creation, with lots of stuff like Dyson spheres, “planets” suspended over a small stellar core, ringworlds and lots of spacial habitats. Good stuff, though VERY daunting in some of their science. Good luck – you’ll need it! 😉
