"remember, we still can't prevent a common cold after all our trying. "
I havent read about much trying once people realised the virus was mutating too fast to catch up with. And besides, a minor disease that cant even incapacitate for a few days doesnt give much of an incentive to actually try and find a prevention or cure.

"You're very close on this one, but you have it back to front. As the core of the earth cools over time it expands."

I was under the impression that metals expanded when hot and contracted when cold, because the metallic structure theyre in is like a 3D grid, the atoms take up more "space" when they are hot because they have more energy and so vibrate faster and furthur. This would make the grid get bigger as each atom 'occupied more space'.
The core of the earth is supposed to be liquid iron/nickel.

Im not too sure on that though, i can think of an example that proves and disproves my thoughts on that, though the example for disprove is weaker.
Proving it i have the knowledge that metal bridges contract and expand in different temperatures.
Disproving it; Ice is cold water and it becomes less dense and expands. But this is because they hydrogen bonding that water molecules are capable of puts the ice into a regular lattice structure, so i dont think this really disproves anything above.
