    Yep, but that was a VERY long time ago, and back in those days the earth was soooo much younger!

    A lot of 101 classes don't get to isostatic rebound, even today. Which is a shame, because concepts like that are things that stick with people down the road, as opposed to, say, the difference between plagioclase and potassium feldspar.
