1. I did the math one time on fitting the entire population of the planet inside Texas.

I used a figure of six billion and only the land area of Texas. 6 billion people would fit inside with no problem at all and have something like 1200 square feet to each person.

4. That's 147,197,952,000 cubic feet

Probably have room left over if you squeezed hard enough.

Actually if you squeezed hard enough you could fit the entire damn planet in considerably less than a cubic mile.

But that would be cheating.

8. They would all fit in Kansas too, each with an 18 x 18 foot square of land.

Enough to grow a little bit of corn. Food puts it into perspective.

10. Amazing what can be done with a compactor.

Or a blender.

Not discounting the possibility of all humanity fitting into a square mile, but only the ones at the top would still be alive after the experiment.

11. That's horseshit. We're supposed to believe

Jack Black's parents were both rocket scientists. There must have been a screwup at the hospital and two jack asses have a really smart son.
