    Cream is less dense than milk. That’s why it’s skimmed off the top.

    That is incorrect. The mass of water that a boat displaces is equal to the mass of the boat. Also the effective density of a boat IS less dense than water. That’s why it floats. The effective density is the total mass of the boat divided by its total volume, which includes a large volume of air. This is the same reason why hot air or helium balloons float in air. They are less dense than air.

    The rock couldn’t get that high at the other end, since it’s not lower than the starting point.

    Wile E. Coyote seemed to have unlimited funds to buy stuff from Acme. He should have just ordered a nice turkey dinner.

    The point is that standing shoulder to shoulder would occupy an area about the size of LA. As stated previously, it’s not a statement of practicality, just of “standing room only”.

    I get the impression that some people don’t want the poor to become affluent, because that would only increase the impact of the “cancer” they view people as in relation to the planet.

    I said nothing about such a scenario being practical. My point was that goweeder’s statement about there being “standing room only soon” is ridiculous hyperbole.

    Actually, world population is projected to level off sometime in the next 100 too 200 years. Estimates vary, but even the most pessimistic projections have population no more than doubling. That makes your “there will soon be standing room only” statement a rather silly exercise in emotional hyperbole. It’s literally not even remotely true. The entire world population would fit within the city limits of Los Angeles if they were standing shoulder to shoulder.

    If either of them were any good, both of them would be rich from having won the lottery multiple times, and neither of them would be there. True of ANY so called psychic.
