How long would it take you to fall through the Earth?
Here's a bit of useless trivia for you: If you could drill a hole through the Earth to the other side, it would take you 42.25 minutes to fall all the way through. I am not even going to pretend I understand the math used here, so I am trusting their calculations. Damnit Jim, I was a Film Studies Major in College, not a math or physics major! Sure, it's useless info, but man it makes you look smart at dinner parties or at the office water cooler.
