The Moon is lowing down our rotation anyway. The effect of the movement of the oceans from the Moon`s gravitational pull is slooooooowly slowing us down by .05MPH per year.

But hey. If you jump, then the earth moves with an equal force the other way, but when you come down again, the earth will be pulled towards you. Doesn`t that mean the effect it has is negligable? (of course it is anyways, since the earth weighs so much more than all humans combined, but anyway)

i think if you`re gonna jump, do it off a tall building....that way it`ll have more force on the impact!!! go on!

- wonder if they just hired some bum and told him to pretend to be a scientst so they can make up this crackhead idea. nerrr lets all jump and move the earth. pffft-

Because no one would have believe it if it wasn`t a bum pretending to be a scientist.

so yea...it wont work. ever hear of conservation of momentum? there`s no outside force acting on the earth so nothing will happen. think of it this way. you push off on earth, and you go one way (called up), and the earth moves the other way, although inpercepibly (spelled right?). then the gravity between you and the earth pulls you back to where you started and the earth back to where it started in relation to one another. the various circular/elipsoid movements of the earth will also not be affected. (conservation of angular momentum comes into play too i think)

im such a dork. most people dont care about what i just said

damn I made a mistake, from Tons to Kg, if we were all fat americans, if would generate a displacement of 1.0x10-13 as much as the earth.

Male 10,440
Herm, Herm, this is so imbecillic its hardly worth mantioning, BUT, for my own amusement I will elaborate..

The earth weighs 6.6 x 10^21 Tons. They say all they need is 6.0 x 10^8 people, if everyone was, say, 167kg, wich is overweight (lol americans) that would cause a weight displacement of 1.0x10^11 at most, so, in reality, a mere 1.0x10^-10 of the total weight of the earth. I can say with certainty that that shiit will do completly nothing

Oh yeah, and, if pple are jumping on opposite sides of the earth, that will cancel out the force they were trying to generate

And as for that craap about reversing global warming, sheesh... if anything were to send the earth out of orbit as much as they say, then we would all die, because the path the earth would take from its present orbit to a "new orbit" would not be stopped, so, the earth would just keep getting farther and farther from the sun.

I`m not even gonna start on that shiit about already having 300million pple alre

The real reason this doesn`t work (no matter how many people) is that the center of mass of the entire system (Earth + Idiots) stays in same spot, when they push off earth in jump, they move one way and the earth moves a microscopic amount the otherway, then when gravity pulls the two together, they both move back to original location. The way to move the earth is to launch the idiots into the sun, since they don`t come back, the earth doesn`t come back to its original position, although you would need A LOT of idiots to make that happen.. and a large cannon.

"what if we jumped and we made the world go off orbit and fly into the sun????????????"
well, thats why the people on the same side of the sun jump, so it goes the opposite direction of the sun.

You know, he was asking a perfeclty reasonable question. I suppose you`re perfect though, which gives you the right to make fun of other people. I get it. And no, you`re not perfect, that was sarcasm.

I`ve got a better idea - let`s all arrange to fart at a certain time in the day to see if the mass of gas from the ass will melt away the ozone layer? It`s just as likely to work...NOT!!!

It remindes me of that futurama episode when all the robots had to exaust at once to make the earth move.
I bet you they got the idea from that. Also, i`m gonna do it anyway, if lots of people jump it might make a cool, like, shiver feeling on the ground, that would be so cool.

Did everyone skip basic science class? Even if you could get everyone in the world to stand on chairs, jump at the same time, and land at the same time, nothing would happen. We`re talking basic laws of motion, and gravity. The only positive aspect of this is that we might get a few extra Darwin awards, or at least Darwin injuries, from idiots jumping off chairs, hopefully falling, and injuring their empty skulls. I suggest anyone who thinks this is even possible, waste their time, and try it.

I`m going to do it. And if something negative does happen (new ice age, earth being thrown into the vastness of space, etc...) I`m going to make sure and log on to IAB and rub it in all the faces of those that said it wouldn`t do anything before I die. If nothing happens...it`ll just be added with Y2K and Oprah keeping a constant weight on the list of things everyone thought were going to heppen, but didn`t really work out.

yeah, if this would WORK i might take place, but all this will do is instantly burn about 100000 calories in one second...not that thats a bad thing, america is really fat and we do need some exericse...so if you are morbidly obese you MUST jump whenever the hell they tell you too! or dont...

Why do I have a feeling this idea came from some friends who were high or drunk? I can see it now..

Stoner#1: Hey man, I just had the best idea!
#2: Really man? What?
#1: We could like, have everyone on the world jump at the same time!
#2:Dude, I bet that would like, knock the Earth over a little bit!
#1: This is going to be so awesome!


It`s not.

how stupid, y do that, why would we want to do that, the earth is in a good position already, imahine the effects to the earth if that happened, i heard recently that there could be an ice age in the next 10 years, thats the worst i think though, it could be longer

to cahnge the worlds orbit u need more mass than the earth, i dont think we have any large planets around to do that, and what tomsss said is true, if the earth wasnt where it is now, we wouldnt be here. so y change it??

I say when all of those dumb asses jump, we
should pull the earth out from under them so
they all fly away into space.
We don`t need idiots like that in our gene pool

Well, the change to the earth surely wouldn`t be that significant. The Tsunami in 2004 on Boxing Day caused the earth to wobble on its axis by about 2.5cm and also speed up rotation slightly. Imagine how much energy that needed?

Oh god, they did an experiment where they had all schools in a specific county jump at exactly the same time. It caused a seismic wave sure, a really small one, but it did`t move or even DENT the earth. If a lot of people did this seismo graphs might catch it (machines that measure earth quakes and seismic waves beneath the earth`s surface), but it wouldn`t do anything astounding. I just learned about this stuff a few years ago.

Just dented, not flat. Come on, if you really wanted to change the orbit you would have to get everyone to be in one place, concert standing room only type of personal bubble space. And still it would probably move it a fraction of whatever and whoever cares...
Kids these days..I swear. :)
