Kewall! I missed that. Assuming you have a frictionless rail
or something to ride on, then the tunnel could be anywhere, and
the oscillation period is 85 minutes on a constant density earth-
sized sphere. Now that I think it over, if given a frictionless
tube in which to oscillate, even rotation doesnt spoil the game.

No, worse than that. A dweeb, a weenie, a... dare I say it?
lover of equations! {8^D spike
