Well I had just ordered some pepperoni pizza tonight, and noticed the pepperoni was rather unevenly distributed…Which certainly affected my pizza’s weight distribution. (and overall experience, of course)
And, being a down-to-Earth person I am, these two following question came in mind:
To begin with, is it really true that Earth’s weight remains unaffected, regardless of human growth? Yes, I can understand that we feed and use Earth’s resources here, so what comes from our planet, pretty much stays in our planet…But is that really the case?
So, assuming my pizza’s box lid is the ‘north’ side, (ranch sauce always rests on the ‘south’), my pizza has a very dense east side, compated to its’ west side. So, its’ eastern side should be slightly heavier…Is China heavier than the Sahara desert? And would the Pacific Ocean weigh much more? Has anyone ever conducted any reasearch on Earth’s weight distribution and formulation?
Of course I can understand that the Earth’s surface is pretty much nothing, compared in her massive scale and density, but still, wouldn’t such differences have any effects?
