    I couldn't help laughing at all the wild fist pumping going on, I guess I've been walking wrong this whole time.

    I guess we don't have to worry about androids secretly living among us anytime soon.

    I'd recommend watching the whole video. It's really quite fascinating especially since I had been saying the earth vs billiard ball thing for a number of years. I looked into it after the video and I have to say, from and engineering point of view, the argument that the earth is smoother than a billiard ball is kinda ridiculous. A billiard ball is, as Michael noted, given a size tolerance of 0.005". This has nothing to do with how smooth the ball is (aka what the surface finish is). The high and low points on an object's surface (such as Mt. Everest or the Marianas Trench) are components of surface finish and not size.
