What if all the Bees Die?

What if all the Bees die? No ways. I will sell all my burgers and create a safe house for them. That’s so cute Aumsum. There are more than 16,000 species of bees. Bees generally collect pollen and nectar from flowers for their survival. In this process they help pollinate majority of the fruits. And vegetable crops which are consumed in the world today. Some studies reveal that more than 90% production of cherries, blueberries. And almonds is a direct result of the pollination efforts of bees. Also, certain bees have evolved as per the size and structure of specific flowers. Hence if there are no bees, these plants would definitely go extinct. This will also have a catastrophic effect on the food chain. As the animals eating those plants will slowly but surely perish. Finally, because of the absence of natural sweetener like honey. Many people may switch over to an unhealthy artificial sweetener like sugar. What if the earth was Cube-Shaped? Holy Moly. Will my cute chubby round face also turn into a cube? Oh AumSum. Earth is spherical in shape because of Gravity. Earth’s gravity pulls everything equally towards its center. And thus gives it a spherical shape. Now, if the earth was Cube-shaped. Firstly, it would look weird, right. Secondly, just like gravity. Our weight would be different at different places on earth. This is because the 8 corners of the cube. Would be much further away from the cube’s center. As compared to the rest of the cube. But this would be good news for people who are over-weight and lazy. Now they can just go to the corners and voilaaa, their weight gets reduced. Thirdly, due to low gravitational force. The cube corners would have very less atmospheric cover & almost no water. Thus rendering them inhospitable. What if the Earth had 2 Moons? So What. Even I have my 2 lollipops, I lick them every day. That’s gross AumSum. The most obvious effect of 2 moons would be that. Our nights would be much much brighter. That would certainly be bad news for stargazers and astronomers. Also, as you all know that tides on earth are a result of the moon. So, 2 moons would either amplify this effect or cancel out each other. If they were to amplify then we could have huge tides. Effectively making living near shorelines almost impossible. But it will definitely be good news for all the surfers. Finally, as the number of moons increases, so will the number of solar eclipses. Also, hypothetically, if they were to ever collide with each other. Then the amount of debris coming out of such collision. Would make living on earth almost impossible. What if Earth Stopped Spinning? It would gain weight. No AumSum. The Earth spins at a speed of 1000 miles-per-hour. Its atmosphere also moves along with it at a constant speed. If the earth stops spinning suddenly, the atmosphere would still be in motion. Sending everything on the earth’s surface, flying into the atmosphere. Now, earth’s spinning generates a centrifugal force. Which is responsible for the huge bulge of water around the equator. No spinning means no centrifugal force. This water would migrate towards the poles, where gravity is the strongest. Leaving behind a giant landmass. Also, remember that, even though the earth stops spinning. It is still revolving around the sun. This means, we would experience a 6-month day, followed by 6-month night. Some experts also believe that earth’s rotation generates its magnetic field. Without rotation, there would be no magnetic field. To protect us from the harmful solar winds.
