So, I'm guessing with my limited knowledge of physics, this would not work. Being that the world is round; all 600,000 people jumping at the same time would have no effect, cus it would just cancel each other out. Also, the only way I would partake in this is if I could use the extra hours for sleep, and not at school or work.

So right now, I'm testing idea related to the damn test server, but again I'm having issues. This time I'm running out of hard disk space on the second test server, cus it had a much smaller HD to start. So, I'm feeling a trip to CompUSA is going to be in near future. But, soon we shall see if my idea works, and if so, it going to same soo much time in the testing phase.

So, lets hope it works.

People are odd and have entirely too much time on their hands.

(No, you don't know me. I am just bored and being snoopy on people's LJs..)

Anyhow, it most definitely would not work. Even if you were able to get 600,000 people in one place, it wouldn't change anything. Consider 600,000 people, and say there were all fat or muscular, and weighed 200 lbs each. That'd be 120,000,000 lbs. Quite a lot of weight. But... still not much compared to the 1.32 x 10^25 lbs the earth ways. Comparatively speaking, 600,000 people jumping on earth at the same time would have about the same intensity of an effect as a grain of sand hitting you while you're standing.

Don't worry about it snooping, I'm glad there are random people who are willing to read my rants. lol. I'm also glad someone else did the math on this, cus I did not even want to think about that. That is what I figured, cus also, we are all around the earth, which is round, so even if it could have an impact, it would just cancel each other out. Plus, I'm sure there is something that would be bad about chaning our orbit. We would prob crash into another planet or something.

I'm going to friend you if that is ok. You are more then welcome to do the same for me also.

I will definitely do the same. I can't claim to really say anything interesting. Usually it's just my random thoughts or rants on what's ticking me off at that particular moment, but hey, perhaps it will provide you with entertainment.

I like your 'avatar' or whatever you'd like to call that picture. You look most happy in it, assuming that it is you.

Ya, that is me. Well, one of the better pictures anyway. I use lots of differnt user icons. Right now, I have 7, and think I can upto ten or something, not really sure on the max since I'm a paid. Also, I would like to make the claim that my journal is not alwasy interseting, but I do try. lol.

Besides the fact...
Besides the fact that 600,000 people (which there are quite a few more than that on the Earth) do not even come close to the weight of the Earth... you are assuming that these people are evenly spread around the Earth. However, I would argue that there are significantly more people in Asia than there are in North America... so if we all jumped at the same time and weight had nothing to do with it, I think we could conceivably knock the Earth off it's axis. =) But that's the geek in me coming out.

Re: Besides the fact...
But also with gravity at 9.8m/s/s, the chance of us changing our orbit would be very small. Also, Like I said before, knowing the luck of the earth, changing our orbit would cause us to hit something else, and just doom everyone.
