To block Nares Strait, She just has to get more creative!  ;D

More likely is that SHE will bounce against land at a previously unknown massive fault causing a huge collapse of land into the strait. That, in turn, will unlock the blockage to a previously unknown localised plume from the mantle, thereby causing a massive volcanic eruption and many trillions of tons of basaltic lava to solidify and completely block the strait. Sort of a new Deccan Plateau.

The Nares Volcano will be the newest and hottest tourist destination in the Arctic.

I have said it so it must be so.

Isn't creativity wonderful! :-*
But not on the main threads, no, no, no.

i assume all the kidding comes from impatient people like me who thing that the darn thing should move a bit fast so that we finally get an answer ;) ;)

end of the story

more contrast shows more cracks and ruptures but this one is several meters wide and visible with naked eyes and without any filters applied.

as i said up-thread, collision imminent, now 1st impact happened with this result so we know what to expect upon further touch-downs

The longest time -option felt alone and I thought to give some people false hope.
Cooling the outside by heat pump.

She did block Nares Strait for a week or so, I just realized.  Maybe it was with those tentacles Mag hypothesized, or 'mind' over matter, Uri Geller style (the spoon-bending guy).  Just don't expect me to answer a question about what sort of mind a floe has.  Sneaky creature, She is!  She probably called in the H's and L's on those Friv charts in just the right places and intensities to fool us into questioning (or not even suspecting) her powers.

Just Wow!    ;D :o ::) :P
