    Do we live on a globe? I thought a globe was a representation of the world.
    Also, the little stick-me is on the moon. Not so little I guess, he's about half as tall as the diameter of the moon. I'm like a moon monster!

    I guess you're right.. still, I'm not about to start referring to the moon as "the world" – which brings up an interesting question:

    Let's say we don't destroy ourselves before we begin colonizing other planets. Obviously the occupants of a newly colonized planet wouldn't call their home "Earth" as that would be dumb. But would a colonizer of Mars refer to their planet as "the world"?

    Oh, and would phrases related to "digging into the earth" or machines that are called "earth movers" (where "earth" refers to the ground/land) be reworded or renamed?
