If the earth is round, why doesnt everything just roll to the bottom of the planet?

More importantly to mention in this type of question is; where exactly is the top and where exactly is the bottom?

Gravity pulls everything towards the center of the Earth, not down.

Mass distorts space and gravity pulls objects toward the mass. Remember that experiment in 7th grade where you put the bowling ball in the center of the trampoline and then roll a tennis ball around it? The tennis ball will circle and circle but eventually connects with the bowling ball and sticks. Gravity is one of the most massive forces but it is also the weakest. It's just strong enough to hold your feet to the ground, right up until you decide to go for a walk.

It's been a long time since I studied this though so I could be totally wrong.

You're all wrong!
Everything IS sitting at the bottom of the planet.
Earth just has a big almost round bottom.
Think about it.

I don't feel the earth spinning at all.

Maybe everything else is spinning around us and we're just still.

How would anybody know the difference anyway?

What proof is there that the earth is spinning and not everything else, around us?

because were not at the centre of the universe or solar system
and im sure some physics experts here can tell you.

Using that form of logic, I could say that when I walk I don't notice that I'm walking on a curved surface, therefore the Earth must be flat.

Take a physics class and then answer your own questions. Or try getting a balloon the size and mass of the earth send it into space and see what happens.

The answer is VELCRO.

Grass is gigantic velcro.
Concrete, sand, and dirt are humongous sheets of sandpaper.

This is why things stay in place.

Tomorrow we'll discuss why the earth isn't teflon.

this explains the traffic...

so we are all cheerios in a huge earth bowl?

let's just hope god doesn't get mad and dump us all out and start wearing the earth as a hat.

When we leave the atmospere, I can only assume North, South, East and West don't exist anymore. The compass would just point to the nearest magnetic force (which ever planet we are closest to).
If I go to the other side of the planet, what was previously up for me is now down.

Time is an invention.
We are living by someone elses rules 24 hours of the day
