Twinkie Deathwatch: Day Four, Wait, What?

At the equator the earth spins at 1038 mph.  A sudden stop at that speed would send everything down to the bedrock continuing in motion at 1038 mph.   The only safe place would be at the North and South poles where the spin speed is always zero.   So, in the case of an actual end to Twinkie production we should all move to the poles.

This has been courtesy safety message from the Emergency Twinkie Disruption System.  In the event of an actual emergency you most certainly will be airborne. So, there’s not much point in worrying about it.

You’re welcome.

Again.

  1. I seem to have read somewhere that twinkies aren’t even baked, that it’s created through some interesting chemical process. That may be non-sense, but I ain’t eatin’ ’em no mo.

    But what would be the effect of Earth rotation if we all moved to the poles?

  3. Better living through chemistry….

  4. @Hydrohead:
    Moving everyone to the poles (effectively reducing the radius of the distribution of the mass of the system) would cause the earth’s rotation rate to increase due to conversation of angular momentum.

    But that answer isn’t funny. Hammy enjoying low altitude orbit: that’s funny. Back to you Mr Fry.

    So Hammy gets to join the ranks of the gliding and/or flying squirells

    I really hope no one over at ScyFy reads this. They’ll make an original movie about it. The world is stopping (again) we all have to move to the poles to keep from floating off into space! Staring Jason London and Steven Baldwin. (cause that’s the only way they can get work ::snerk::)
