SFX,
You ever feel like you opened a can of worms?

On another forum, there was a argument over the tides that started in 2009.  (my fault, I pointed out some tide stuff was not correct)

It went on for 7 years.

I wish I could say that is a joke.  But it's actually true.

Lots of interesting discussions on the subject of tides.

I found this PBS Space/Time on Tides very helpful.

The thing that really really isn't true about the tides, is the one thing almost every "authority" is wrong about.  It's also the thing most people object to, or find hard to understand.  And that is understandable, since it isn't true.  Nor can it be true,

Why is There a Tidal Bulge Opposite the Moon?

There is no bulge opposite the moon, and there is no bulge under the moon,  Much less two bulges racing around the planet following the moon.

What Does the Pull of the Moon Do to the Oceans?
The gravitational pull of the moon creates two types of tides: high and low. A tidal bulge occurs in the oceans on the side of the earth nearest the moon; a second tidal bulge occurs on the far side of the earth. These bulges are high tides. The areas between the tidal bulges experience low tide.

That just isn't how it is.  And it can't be that way, because physics.

To make it even harder to follow, the solid earth, (and the moon), do deform, because of gravity (the tides).

But the ocean tides are nothing like the solid earth tide.  Except for the fact that the moon and sun are the main factors in causing both.
