Fix Magnetic North

Install Trump at the North Pole

Magnetic north is shifting at a rate of 40 miles (and an even larger number of kilometers) each year. Having resided in Canada for the longest time it is now migrating steadily towards Russia. The shift causes navigational issues for ships and aircraft alike.

An office complex built at the exact center of geographic North would house One Donald Trump. Trump's polarizing personality would cause all compass needles to swing towards him.

       But the ice caps are melting ... the building would fall through and ...   

       Ah, yes, we see where you're going with this ...

       If you take the map in the first link and extrapolate it backwards, it turns out that the magnetic North Pole was originally at Greenwich - which is where I've always said it belongs.

       Yes, extrapolating backwards, the line goes through Canada and the US, which would place Greenwich somewhere in Mexico - which is where I've always said it belongs.

       I think we'd miss the drizzle.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jun 08 2016
  

       Can't we just all get a longitude?   

       Nope. Greenwich has the only one available.

       // Can't we just all get a longitude? //   

       No. Clock off and stop Harrison people ...

       Or move it every four years, like the Olympics.

       His hair would look great under the Northern Lights, and he would be the star to every wondering barking madman out there, which I presume he already is...

       What about the Polar Bears ?

       //What about the Polar Bears ?// Six days of Trumpmania and they will be Bi-Polar Bears.
4whom, Jun 10 2016
  

       ..or Buy Polar Bears!

       Ok.. I know this is off topic.. but he does know his name means "fart" in English schoolboy vernacular doesn't he.. or is that only in boys own adventure annuals from the 1940's?
Skewed, Jun 11 2016
  

       Yep. Trump for the Whitehouse!
MaxwellBuchanan, Jun 11 2016
  

       Whitehorse!
He meant Whitehorse!
  

       They'll teach him the 'ol what-for.   

       // Trump for the Whitehouse //   

       We might be safer with Trump in an igloo. With Hillary.   

       Can David Cameron run two countries at once?
whatrock, Jun 11 2016
  

       Since he can't even run one country at once, the answer is most likely "No".

       Not a good idea, as the North Pole is mostly pollution free. Appoint him as some sort of obscure government offical in a remote part of Mexico.
xenzag, Jun 12 2016
  

       /obscure government official/   

       Like a governor! Of some state where they love him! Arizona? Kansas?
bungston, Jun 12 2016
  

       I wonder if he could make Mexico great again...
<later edit>
No... I dare him to make Mexico great again.
  

       ...I bet he couldn't pull it off.   

       I think he and Mr. Claus wouldn't make good roommates.

       Better with Mr. Hoffa, Richard the III, or Hannibal Lector.   

       As Obama so clearly demonstrated with his grown- up speech and stance on that billionaire assclown's incomprehensible utterings concerning members of a certain faith, Orange is definitely not the new Black.
