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.
