    Wow. Personally, I think the world would just implode.

    The world is round, so the jumping would be negated worldwide.

    Actually since it is round it would be more of a squeezing effect, compounding the inward pressure, rather than a negating effect. But when looking at it from a standpoint of "would it move the earth", then yes it would be negated.

    Nothing would happen though, I think.

    Yeah I meant the force wouldn't crack the earth. I can be wrong for sure, just making a guess lol.

    If everyone in the world jumped at the same time, I guess it could act as though a meteor hit the earth with a significantly less impact. The earth would quickly continue on as if nothing happened.

    But if we all jump at once. Would the impact be even, therefore no damage will happen. Since the jump would centered towards are earths core and that i can guess can take a massive impact. Or am i looking at it wrong.

    Would it not go inwards and be sent in opposite directions, so ones that jump in Japan. Their shockwave will be sent the U.S and the U.S shockwave will be sent to japan. Since the world is round the shackwaves will cross through each other and be sent in opposite directions. Or would they bounce of each other and be sent back to were they originate from

    I thought the video was awesome, in the midst of people talking about stuff like "shockwaves" and "inward pressure", he sneaked in actual science: Newton's third law, for us to learn to help answer the queston, but it seemed like a lot of the comments missed this...
