The Great Fall of China

Everyone remembers the physics class in 10th grade when your teacher told you that if, one day, 5 billion people stood on top of the Great Wall of China and all jumped off simultaneously, the resulting force would be sufficient to knock the Earth completely out of its orbit. Right into outer space. Well, I'm pleased to announce that that day is May 23, 2008.

The Chinese government is pleased to host this event. Unfortunately, this blog is blocked by the "Great Firewall of China," so I am relying on my readers to relay this message to our friends who are out of reach. This particular date was chosen so as not to conflict with any national holidays or celestial events.

If anyone could get me unblocked by China, that would be great. Thanks.

That depends what you mean by "happen."

The real challenge will be squeezing 5 billion people into a 2500-mile-long wall. That's 400 people per foot.

Drats, I knew I shouldn't have asked what I was thinking in that case.
