    quoted in first post.

    It's not about Pangaea, it's about one previous to it, Rodinia

    Blimey, I had no idea that they had moved around prior and been other supercontinents! I'd always assumed it was just Pangaea until that started to break apart.

    This is the 'new thing i've learned today'!...
