I just read back through and apparently I missed his post. Would have saved me some time.

This is not a serious thread there Webby. It's just a silly test for silly folks who like silly results.

Webby is not silly. Webby is serious business.

I did the test just because it was something to do at 4am for my amusement. Now I know how many nickels it takes for my keys. So if I ever wanted to create a keyboard typing robot, I could just use nickel dispensing machine in it's stead.

Can you explain to me what exactly is causing the sky to now show up through the portal in great detail?

Also, back to nickel measuring. I'm derailing my own thread.

So how much does a nickel weigh on the North Pole? Also, is it easier, harder, or equally hard to press a keyboard key on the North Pole?
