OK, So I had a dream last night and I want to see what everyone's opinion is on this thought: Assune you were able to dig a hole through the center of the Earth, and out the other side. And also assume that you would not be affected by the heat. If you jumped into the hole, would your momentum carry you out the other side, or would you get stuck in the middle after bouncing back and forth for a while?

Air friction would ensure you DON'T pop out in China.

You would yo-yo back & forth, each time not going as far.

Eventually, you'd stop, in the middle of the earth

Well it's nice to have a theory, but I think Wile E Coyote has already proven you wrong on this one.


THANK YOU!!! I think its worth an experiment, now I gotta find some cheap diggers

Hire some illegals. They only want to dig the holes to China that Americans won't dig

The core of the earth is a giant spinning superheated iron crystal. If that stops, so does our magnetic field, allowing all sorts of radiation to get through, killing us all.

Please don't do it!!!!!!

Your two posts contradict each other.

Don't you think Wile E Coyote would have seen the dinosaurs?
