Some say that they would eradicate all diseases or create limitless clean energy. Others say that they would end all wars, finally bringing peace to all humanity. I, on the other hand, would give Earth its biggest upgrade in 4.5 billion years.
You can thank our planet’s round shape, tilt, and spin for blazing summers and freezing winters, time zones that give you jet lag, and a weird physics thing that “curves” the path of bullets horizontally the farther you shoot them.
If Earth were flat and didn’t spin, our lives (albeit short-lived) would be far more interesting. This is why — given unlimited power — I would turn our planet into a cosmic frisbee. Here are some benefits of this plan:
On a flat Earth, people at the edges would be very scared because gravity “skews” the farther you are from the center. Since you’re always being pulled towards the Earth’s center of mass, running towards the edge would feel like jogging anywhere in the Bay Area. This effect was illustrated in the popular Vsauce video “Is Earth Actually Flat?".
On the way back, you’d simply be able to roll home — no car needed! Unfortunately, you would also break every bone in your body.
