After We All Fly Off Into Space

Hey, were you wondering what would happen if the earth gradually slowed down and eventually just stopped spinning? Someone at GIS software company esri was: "If the earth stood still, the oceans would gradually migrate toward the poles and cause land in the equatorial region to emerge. This would eventually result in a huge equatorial megacontinent and two large polar oceans." Practical answer: LA's inland and the upper midwest is toast. Soggy toast. [ArcUser online, via kottke]
